"Hello, my old friend!" I just thought I had to incorporate the phrase 'old friend' into the "Have you come back to lecture me on my turning to the dark side as Obi-Wan does?" . "Nice to meet you," Luke said uncomfortably. Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope () Alec Guinness as Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi.

A long time ago, in a sub reddit far, far, away. that this is Obi Wan's last memory of Anakin before meeting him again aboard the Death Star.
Your appearance as well as your words are what people will notice first. His gentle tone reassures us that he is not some random desert bum. When comedian Jon Stewart interviewed George Lucas, an interesting question came up. Reading from cards, Stewart asked Lucas fans' burning questions. When Stewart asked what planet Obi-Wan came from, George Lucas jokingly responded that it was called "Stewjon," an obvious reference to Jon Stewart's name.
Did it end there, a simple joke in an interview? If you search online for Obi-Wan's home planet, you will find that Stewjon has made its way into official canon. Bear in mind that Obi-Wan spent most of his life on Coruscant, which is why he speaks with a Coruscanti accent.
But the planet where he was born is definitely called Stewjon. Luke was the son of his former best friend, and Obi-Wan had been present at his birth. That doesn't mean that Obi-Wan wasn't looking out for Luke from the sidelines.

Comics have come out telling the story of Ben Kenobi's time in the desert as a hermit watching over Luke. As an adventurous young lad, Luke got into quite a few scrapes. But Obi-Wan was there for him through it all. At one point, Luke got in trouble with Jabba the Hutt and his men.
Obi-Wan was able to take down all of the dirtbags and rescue Luke without Luke ever knowing it was him. If, for example, your nickname was Stinky, it would most likely denote a penchant your body has for being really malodorous.
That's a fancy way of saying you probably smell horrible. He was given this name because he was well known for being able to resolve disputes without using his weapon. He was so diplomatic, he got his own nickname proclaiming that he was a master talker. This almost goes without saying, just going off of his personality. Obi-Wan always seem super polite, to the point of being over-courteous. When Grievous calls Obi-Wan by his nickname, I'm sure he means it as an insult, but no matter how mockingly he might say it, it should be a point of pride for Obi-Wan.
They both watched their mentor get lightsabered down in front of them. They both trained young, but powerful Force users. And their pupils ended up turning to the Dark Side. I don't know for certain whether this was intentional, but it seems fitting when you think about it.
Good stories either seem to imply a cycle continuing or a cycle breaking. Luke did not end up breaking the cycle. Whatever you think of the prequels, you have to admit that the lightsaber duels were epic. They only look as good as they do because the actors practiced for the battles.
Ewan McGregor, playing the young Obi-Wan Kenobi, was so enthused as they were filming the lightsaber scenes that he would make "lightsaber sounds" as he was fighting, mimicking the lightsaber noises we all know and love.
How many times have you pretended you were holding a lightsaber, and you made the noises as you swung your imaginary blade? They truly did have a bond of friendship with each other. When Anakin was younger and experiencing doubts about being a Jedi, he considered leaving the Jedi Order.
Upon learning this, and knowing that if Anakin left the Order he would no longer be able to receive training from a Jedi, Obi-Wan decided that if Anakin left, he would leave as well. That showcases Obi-Wan's loyalty more than anything else. Clone troopers turned on their generals, and the Jedi Temple was taken over. It was a tragic day in the history of the Jedi. And to make matters worse, a Jedi Beacon in the temple was activated. It was meant to call Jedi home to Coruscant, but with all the clone troopers around, it was clearly an ambush.
Obi-Wan has the idea to reprogram the beacon to send out a warning, telling Jedi to stay away. This idea was not his own. Wisdom from the mouths of babes, am I right? It's a shame really, because it is due to Qui-Gon's actions that we get visited by several of our favorite deceased characters, including Obi-Wan Kenobi. Qui-Gon must have been some kind of wonder-Jedi because he learned a secret Force technique that allowed him to become a Force Spirit.
He teaches this technique to Yoda. Yoda later imparts the knowledge he received from Qui-Gon to Obi-Wan. What I want to know is why we never get to see Ghost Qui-Gon.

If he was the one who taught everyone else that trick, why do we never get to see him use it? For over a thousand generations, the Jedi knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the old Republic I don't understand how we got by those troops. I thought we were dead. The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.
Your eyes can deceive you; don't trust them. There's two more coming in. They're gonna try and cut us off. What did you guys do to attract this kind of attention, anyhow?
Couldn't we outrun them first and explain ourselves later? You said something about the Kessel Run. Watch the wisecracks, kid, or you're gonna find yourself floating home! I'm nobody's straight-man, not on my own ship!
We'll be safe enough once we make the jump to hyperspace. Besides, I know a few maneuvers which ought to shake the more persistent ones. Here's where the fun begins! How long before you can make the jump to hyperspace? It'll take a few moments to get the coordinates from the nav-com. I could override it, but the drive might shred itself. At the rate they're gaining!
Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, farm-boy! Ever try calculating a jump to light-speed? Didn't think so; well, it's no parlor trick.
Without precise calculations we could fly right through a supernova, or bounce into a singularity. I've seen it happen, too; I only wish I hadn't. What does that mean? Go strap yourselves in, we're ready to make the jump.
If we take a burst at the wrong moment You've had a busy day. You're fortunate to be all in one piece. Boy, am I glad to see you. The Jundland Wastes are not to be traveled lightly. Tell me, young Luke, what brings you out this far? I think he's searching for his former master. I've never seen such devotion in a droid before.
Ah, he claims to be the property of an Obi-Wan Kenobi. Is he a relative of yours? Do you know what he's talking about? Now, that's a name I've not heard in a long time. I think my uncle knows him. He said he was dead. But of course I know him. I haven't gone by the name of Obi-Wan since
