(Admins--please delete if this is redundant. I feel like there must be a thread on this subject, but I couldn't find one in the first 10 pages.) How is GL going to connect Obi-Wan from the end of Ep. II to old Ben from ANH? During Ben and Luke's first meeting, there are a few comments about and by Obi-Wan that need explaining. Hopefully some of this will be addressed in Ep. III. Of course, anything that Ben says in this first conversation is a little suspect. But let's assume that everything that he says is true from a certain point of view--in other words, that he wasn't making things up from scratch in this conversation. So, here goes: 1) "I haven't gone by Obi-Wan since, oh, before you were born." Huh? Will we see him using the name Ben before the birth of the twins (which will presumably be shown in Ep. III)? 2) The whole "General Kenobi" business. There's already a thread on this, but it's worth throwing into the mix here as well. See [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6931307]General Kenobi and Bail Organa[/link] 3) Obi-Wan and Owen Lars: In ANH, Owen obviously knows and dislikes Obi-Wan. Will we see their meeting and the origin of Owen's hostility in Ep. III? On a related note, will there be any explanation of: "He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damned-fool idealistic crusade like your father did." What crusade would that be? So, any opinions or theories about Obi-Wan's story arc in Ep. III? For argument's sake, let's assume that GL doesn't decide to throw continuity out the window.
