Now ISIS recruits are passing through Luke Skywalker’s home planet on their way to Libya, and Star Wars fans are being warned to stay away as the danger escalates in the region.

Obi-Wan Kenobi said it best: “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.”

The planet Tatooine from “Star Wars” was inspired by the real city of Tataouine in Tunisia and parts of the country were used as a backdrop for various scenes in the films.

Over the past month, authorities have found numerous weapons caches – including rocket launchers – and arrested several men on their way to cross the border and join ISIS in Libya, according to CNN. ISIS also recently claimed responsibility for the terror attack on the National Bardo Museum in Tunis which killed 23 people.

The British government has issued a travel warning for the area citing “a high threat from terrorism, including kidnapping.”
