- "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
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. The Western Dune Sea was the location where the Mos Espa Grand Arena was located. The palace of Jabba the Hutt and the home of Obi-Wan Kenobi were located beyond the Dune Sea.
