Boston to fill in as 'harsh desert world' next month

WBZ reports Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as a younger Obi-Wan Kenobi in filming next month in Boston as part of a series about his adventures on Tatooine, "a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders."

Because people from the provincial parts of the country where towns are meaningless entities and cities have sprawled out into the unincorporated countryside are always confusing our municipalities with neighborhoods.

The movie being filmed is Obi-Wan: The College Years (cue a sax-laden instrumental and cut to an opening shot of a young berobed Obi-Wan running down the steps of the Widener Library, across Harvard Yard, out Johnston Gate, and across Cambridge Common to make his Jedi Philosophy 102 class at the Divinity School with seconds to spare. A hundred-something year old Professor Yoda on the dais rolls his eyes and says "almost late to class, you were", as he begins his lecture).
