star wars Love messy family trees. Aside from the gibberish glowing swords and puppets, it’s essentially the backbone of this beloved series.So it’s no surprise Obi-Wan Kenobi, A show ingrained in the past, will set out to discover some new skeletons in the closet.

First off, episode 3 reminds us again of our lost family.Specifically, a sad cover story leads to Leia Realize that Ben did know her biological mother, Padmé, before she died.

Unfortunately, she Obi-Wan Not actually Leia’s father.But then again, it was a bit Related to her twin brother Luke, depending on which Canon version you buy.

Leia’s question evokes memories of Obi-Wan’s parents, including his mother’s cape and the flash of his father’s hand.Now this is where things get juicy real housewives of tatooine Somehow, because Ben all of a sudden mentions a sibling that technically shouldn’t exist based on what we know about the character’s history.

“I think I have a brother, but I don’t remember him,” Obi-Wan said before continuing to discuss the new family he joined as one of the Jedi.This secret brother won’t show up in the next episodes, but if we know star wars as we know star warsthen it’s safe to say that this one-off review will haunt Ben again before the series ends.

When are you coming back Return of the Jedi First released in 1983, the original script mentioned that Luke Skywalker’s adoptive uncle, Owen Lars, was actually Ben’s biological brother. While this reveal was eventually removed from the final cut, the film’s novelization still includes lines where Obi-Wan refers to Owen as “his brother”:

“Your mother and I know he’ll find out eventually, but we want to keep you both as safe as possible, for as long as possible. So I’m taking you to live in Tatooine with my brother Owen…”

according to inverse, the book is still available to read, in case you want to check it out for yourself.Might be harder to find star wars A customizable card game from 1996 that also refers to Owen as Ben’s brother.

Then, in a 1999 novel titled Jedi Apprentice: The Hidden Pastwhen a younger version of Ben started dreaming of his parents and a brother named Owen.

However, in 2002, the situation changed Attack of the clones After Cliegg Lars married Shmi Skywalker, Owen Lars was retrospectively established as Anakin’s step-brother. Thirteen years later, in a short story by Abel G Peña, Lone Wolf: A Tale of Obi-Wan and Luke, star wars Finally trying to explain it all, claiming that Ben’s childhood dreams were actually visions of the future, not the past, because, you know, the Force stuff.

So yes, there’s a fraternal bond there, but Owen isn’t actually Obi’s brother.But in that case, what happened here Obi-Wan Kenobi? Did the show try to undo this retcon and end up making Owen his brother?That would be tricky because These episodes are set after the Clone Warswhen Kenobi realized that Owen was not actually related to him, at least biologically.

However, given the tortuous history star wars And how some aspects of the Expanded Universe can no longer be considered canon, the show may be trying to regain control of retcon, as tricky as it may be.

Or maybe this secret bro reveal has nothing to do with Owen Russ at all. Maybe Ben really has another brother we didn’t know about until now. If so, don’t be surprised if he ends up appearing at some point in the series, or at least in the near future.and know star warsthis new brother may even be someone we already know.

Whatever happens, we doubt that Obi-Wan and the mysterious brother will ever be happily reunited.

boys, Darth Vader He wasn’t kidding when he told Obi that “your pain is just beginning”.
