Behind the scenesEdit

"Your mother and I knew he would find out eventually, but we wanted to keep you both as safe as possible, for as long as possible. So I took you to live with my brother Owen, on Tatooine..."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi to Luke Skywalker in the Return of the Jedi novelization[src]

Early printings of the novelization of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi included a fragment identifying an Owen (implied to be Luke Skywalker's adoptive uncle) as Obi-Wan Kenobi's brother. Said brother was later alluded to in the Jedi Apprentice book series. However, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones revealed Luke's uncle as Anakin Skywalker's step-brother, and gave him the surname Lars, establishing him as someone different from Kenobi's brother. Further mention of Owen was eliminated from later printings of the Return of the Jedi novelization, leaving Obi-Wan's brother as a mostly unexplored character.
