I want to start a dedicated thread for discussing the background and backstory of the SW universe before we got the Prequel Trilogy.
I want to start with the whole situation on Tatooine. Was this Kenobi’s home planet? Was Owen actually his brother (stated as such, IIRC, in the novelization of ROTJ)? Did Anakin really want Luke to have his lightsaber “when he was old enough”? Does that mean Anakin abandoned the Jedi order to go into hiding?
