Lettuce was one of Obi-win’s favorite foods. He liked it steamed and smothered in butter. As Luke Skywalker he grew lettuce for his mother’s salad bowl.
Mushrooms are the perfect food for Jedi Knights. They can be grilled on a fire or cooked over a campfire. With their natural flavor they complement any dish.
Banana trees are tall and slender. Their leaves look like palm fronds. A banana tree is easy to recognize. There is nothing else that looks like a banana tree.
9. Obi Win’s first name is unknown. He may have been named after his father, but he was likely born with the name Obi-Wan. He was probably given this name because he had a rare ability to sense things before they happen. His parents were from Tattooing, where their home planet was located. They are said to have moved away from their homeland, but not too far away. Most likely they moved to Alderman, where the family lived until he joined the Jedi Order.
2. Obi-Wan Kenobi was born around 29 BBY (Before Battle of Gavin) or 26 ABY (After Battle of Gavin). This puts him in his mid-20s at the time of Episode IV.
3. His birth date was set to 14 May 3866 BBY (19 years old), making him 35 years old at the time of Episode VI.
4. As a young boy, he went to live on Tattooing with his mother and siblings. While living on Tattooing, he grew up working on a moisture farm, helping his uncle run the business.
5. Obi-Wan Kenobi’s uncle, Owen Lars, was wealthy, but died tragically when his ship crashed into a sand worm. After that incident, Obi-Wan took charge of the farm while his aunt, Buru, raised her children alone.
6. In approximately 4 ABY, he met Qui-Goon Jinn, who became like a second father to him.
The Force is strong, around you!
It surrounds us all; it binds the galaxy together. But do not underestimate its energy, or become overconfident against the power that lies within you.
There are those who rely on the light side of the Force, who follow what they fear, who find their power through control. And others who rely on the dark side of the Force, whose power flows from discipline, knowledge, and a burning desire to prove themselves. Seek not to join these powers, but rather to balance yourself against them. They are natural opposites: good and evil, yin and yang. Wherever your path may lead, remember the Force. Feel it. Use it…
