Behind the scenesEdit
- "This is one of the first things I wrote in the very first script. He comes from the planet Stewjon."
- ―George Lucas, joking about Obi-Wan Kenobi's planet of origin
The name of Obi-Wan Kenobi's homeworld was coined by George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars. At the Celebration V convention in Orlando, Florida, comedian and talk-show host Jon Stewart interviewed Lucas, and Stewart asked for the name of Obi-Wan Kenobi's home planet. Lucas jokingly replied that it was "Stewjon," a tuckerization of Stewart's name. The official StarWars.com Encyclopedia entry on Obi-Wan Kenobi later listed Stewjon as Kenobi's home planet.
