How did Obi-Wan and Yoda know about Owen and Beru?? The only explanation I can think of is that they went back to Watto looking for Shmi and he directed them to the Lars homestead. —Unsigned comment by126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs).
From what I could find Obi-Wan contacted Owen and Beru before giving Luke to them, so its unlikely he went to Watto. He may have told Obi-Wan about what happened on Tatooine if he told Palpatine and Padme, and Obi-Wan could've tracked them down. Commander Code-8G'day, mate 22:48, April 14, 2013 (UTC)
Anakin himself would have had to disclose that information to Obi-wan, since he would have had to explain what he and Padme were doing on Tatooine and not on Naboo, prior to the Battle of Geonosis. At any rate, it seems a given that Obi-wan knew the circumstances surrounding Anakin's mother's death, just not the aftermath. Padme also had that information, so it's likely that she and Obi-wan had discussed the Lars's and Anakin's mother. Also, the droids both knew of the Lars's location and their relation to Anakin. Particularly Threepio before he had his mind wiped, having been in service there for 10 years. Ghostly Menace (talk) 23:57, April 14, 2013 (UTC)
