Film crews spend millions of dollars on building the perfect movie set in the perfect location, but haven't you always wondered what happens to them when the post-production is all said and done? Online travel guide 'Atlas Obscura' reveals some of the most iconic film sets and their current statuses in its latest photo series titled 'After the Wrap: The Post-Shooting Life of Sixteen Film Sets.'

The photographs include sets that range from The Hobbit to Star Wars and City of Pharos, where the camera crews have since long departed. Many sets have been redesigned, while others have been kept in-tact for attraction purposes and offer guided tours. However, some sets like the Mos Espa set in Tunisia, where the original Star Wars trilogy was shot, haven't seen the same post-film fortune. It has remained abandoned for years and is in the midst of being swallowed by dessert sand.
