Death Valley is located in the Mojave desert of southeastern California. It's a land of extremes - the lowest point in the USA, and home of some of the hottest temperatures ever recorded. In the 1970's, the other-worldly look of the place caught the attention of a filmmaker named George Lucas. The result was that Death Valley was used as a filming location for the first Star Wars movie, now called Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. In this video, EUCORP gives us a bird's eye view of the famous valley.
