Obi-Wan Kenobi: 20 Fan Theories That Are Believable

Several fan theories about this fictional character of ‘Star Wars’ franchise have been around for quite some time. Since the arrival of Sir Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi, these theories have been goofing around for over 40 years. The prequel trilogy has made the fans grow their ideas into some believable severe thoughts. Amongst tons of them, we have created a list that includes the most acceptable ones.

1. The reason for Obi-Wan and Anakin dual’s ending is ‘The high Ground’. Fan theories about this topic never really stop! Thus, this is the legitimate reason why ‘The High Ground’ would be so crucial at that moment between these dualists.

2. Many people (who aren’t a fan of Kenobi) think hiding Luke on Vader’s homeworld was a plot hole. However, the fans of Obi-Wan differ from them. They think it was absolutely a brilliant move as Obi-Wan knew Vader was terrified of Tatooine and would never set foot on Tatooine.

6. Obi-Wan wasn’t just protecting Luke. He was there to monitor him and to make sure Luke doesn’t become the next Vadar.

7. We assume that Vader has at least had a suspicion of becoming one with the force, it brings much more context to Vader awkwardly pushing around the robe after Obi-Wan disappeared.
