At the beginning of his revised fourth draft of Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope, George Lucas narrates that the planet Tatooine emerged from a total eclipse.
The awesome yellow planet of Tatooine emerges from a total eclipse, her two moons glowing against the darkness.
According to the 1977 novelization of the film Star Wars, ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster, Tatooine circled massive G1 and G2 stars which in turn orbited a common center between them with peculiar regularity. Also, Tatooine had three moons (two depicted in A New Hope and the three in Episode II – Attack of the Clones).
I ask if there is some explanation of the nature of this eclipse in the Star Wars Canon or Legend. Is he referring to a solar eclipse that occurred when a portion of Tatooine was engulfed in the shadow casted by one of its three moons which fully or partially blocked the light from one of its two suns, or was he speaking rhetorically as if thinking of the contrasting camera panning from the dark sea of stars to the bright picture of Tatooine, or is it the one caused by the shadow of the giant Imperial Star Destroyer in pursuit of the small Rebel Blockade Runner experienced by an observer on Tatooine?
One of the cards of the Customizable Card Game based on the Star Wars fictional universe depicts the planet Tatooine -with two moons in the background- that appear to emerge from a total solar eclipse caused by the shadow of its third moon. The aforementioned could shed some light (or shadow) on this question.
