Disney Reveals New Reason Behind Obi-Wan’s Lies To Luke
The end of Obi-Wan Kenobi explains why Ben lied to Luke Skywalker in New Hope about the betrayal of Darth Vader and the murder of Luke's father.
When George Lucas' original Star Wars film was released in 1977, it was believed that Darth Vader and Luke's father were two different people.
The sequel, of course, is one of the biggest twists in the film's history and reveals that Luke's father is Luke's father.
After defeating Darth Vader in the final of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Obi-Wan collapses and starts screaming when he sees Anakin's blows.
It was the first time he'd seen Anakin's face since he'd burned Mustafar, so he apologized for everything that had happened.
But in response to Obi-Wan's sentence about Anakin's failure in Revenge of the Sith, his father said, "I'm not your failure, Obi-Wan. You didn't kill Anakin Skywalker."
The scene explains Obi-Wan's statement to Luke that Darth killed Anakin Skywalker's father because he did it in a way.
Eventually, his father's Obi-Wan line to the Ben Kenobi people became known from the original Star Wars.
