"You will, therefore, be taken to the Dune Sea and cast into the Pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all powerful Sarlacc."
C-3PO, translating Jabba the Hutt[src]

The Dune Sea was a vast stretch of desert on the Outer Rim planet of Tatooine. The Great Pit of Carkoon, which contained a creature known as the sarlacc, was located in the Dune Sea.[2] The Western Dune Sea was the location where the Mos Espa Grand Arena was located.[4] The palace of Jabba the Hutt[5] and the home of Obi-Wan Kenobi were located beyond the Dune Sea.[1]

According to Jawa folklore, the Dune Sea was once a genuine ocean. Although many colonists found it hard to believe that water had once flowed abundantly on Tatooine, ancient fossil-bearing rocks and eroded canyons seemed to back up the Jawas' tales.[6]
