Description[edit | edit source]
The Tatooine advertisement depicted a typical settlement on the planet with several domed buildings, some with tall spires. Several ships were barely visible in the sky, and a few sentients could be seen bustling through the sandy, dusty streets. Text in the upper-left corner of the poster, written in the Galactic Basic Standard alphabet of Aurebesh, read "Tatooine."
