George Lucas Explains Why Obi-Wan Lied to Luke About His Father

In the making of the return of the Jedi, George Lucas is going over many difference scenes, and in one short instance, he comes across a discussion with Marquand on the topic of Ben lying to Luke and why he wrote the story that way. Here’s the transcript.
Lucas: We also have to cope with another problem: Ben. How do we deal with Ben? We have to deal with Ben, even to the point of using Alec Guinness in one more ghost scene. I’ll get him to do it somehow. We have to do what is right for the plot and the story.
Marquand: Why did Ben not tell Luke?
Lucas: In the early script, I wrote that he wasn’t ready to be told.
Marquand: Well, I think that is true.
Lucas: If Luke had known, he wouldn’t have become a Jedi and he wouldn’t have been able to deal with it.
Marquand: I think that is absolutely true.
Lucas: That’s the most practical reason why.
Howard Kazanjian: He probably wouldn’t have learned in the same manner.
Lucas: For a lot of people there’s a big issue there, which we can’t skirt around.
Marquand: The fact that Ben lied.
Lucas: The fact that Ben lied, but he didn’t really lie; he didn’t really lie, because in the first film he says that Vader betrayed and murdered his father, which doesn’t necessarily mean that he killed him-but that the bad/Vader half of the person betrayed the good part of the person/the Skywalker half. It’s easily understood.
So right here I’ll interject to highlight this part that George mentions. The good half of Vader, which was Anakin. A lot of people make the misconception that Anakin was killed fully when he became Vader. This simply isn’t true and is more or less just click bait online. Anakin was subdued, maybe to a degree of a percentile, however he was never fully erased from Vader, as George even says about his character, that the good half of Vader, was Anakin at the time of Revenge of the Sith.
The 3 then go on to talk about how it was a problem that Ben lied to Luke in the first movie, but not as big of a problem as it became in the second one in regards to why he didn’t just tell Luke on Dagobah or at some point in the film. If we remember, at the end Luke is laying in the medical bed after Vader chopped his hand off, and while Vader is reaching out to him in the force, Luke is falling back and asking Ben why didn’t you tell me. This is kind of George’s way, I think, of him addressing that Ben should have told him and that Luke has this resentment towards him.
George’s answer to that is
Lucas: But I still tend to want to bring Ben into it. He’s one of the main characters and he’s still a strong presence. I sort of agree with Larry that the best way to handle that is to let him stay in another world and to say there is nothing more that he can do now and that Luke is a Jedi now and that his job is done. It could be a goodbye scene to Ben, which is, “I am never going to appear before you again …”
And the rest of the convo leads into them bringing Ben back as a shimmering ghost and the conversation leads into Luke being able to see force ghosts because he has that power, which I’ve made a video on recently.
So as we can see, it was important for Ben to lie to Luke, which I know a lot of people always had a gripe about, but it’s George’s understanding that if he had told Luke the truth, let’s say from the very beginning in a new hope, it would have completely pushed Luke away from training and wanting to learn about the force, which would have doomed the galaxy, that is, unless Ben went to teach Leia, which could be a cool fan-fiction for another time. I think in that scenario, Leia would be trained, and perhaps Luke would join the fight later on once he found out that Leia was his sister, perhaps Ben would tell him as a last ditch effort to get him to fight against the Empire and become a Jedi.
Do you think Ben should have told Luke the truth? Do you think George has a great point in regards to how he wrote the story, that Luke would really be pushed away from wanting to become a Jedi after finding out his father is Vader?

I considered that Ben lied to Luke because he thought if Luke knew the truth he would refuse to kill Darth Vader. I never really liked the "point of view" idea - it more feels like a way of Ben not wanting to admit he lied.

See how one man's mind is at battle with story and plot and how this connects to that and end up with classics? Amazing how how with a whole team, none of this is currently done. But I digress. I'm glad George chose to go this route. It helped me come to a conclusion. When Ben said, 'From a certain point of view.' That was something that has stuck with me for decades! Truth is a point of view. Even in the opening crawl of ROTS he puts in there that there are heroes on both sides. Or just take Luke blowing up the Death Star. One view is hero, the other view is terrorist. Depending on your point of view comes your view of truth. Without George working it out to get that into the story, who knows if I'd ever learned that find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view. Plus, it's funny to see Luke's face when he replied: From a certain point of view? lol His tone and face, then Ben looked at him side eyed lol Bring George back lol

It's hard to say. Tell complete truth to a kid who never knew his father and push the kid away, or save the universe. Note: Ben had access to Luke already, but would have had to leave Tatooine, and risk being discovered to find and train Leia.

He lied to him because they had not yet come up with the idea that Vader was his father. So it wasn’t a lie. It was working with the backstory as Lucas conceived it at that point. Period.

I agree with this, because luke was too young and he wouldn't be able to handle it and the way obi wan tell wasn't a lie/ saying like the good person of your father was dead/original of that person was gone and because he was aka the same person, darth vader and not only that but if george told us vader was luke father at the new hope where is the mystery in that!?! for in the next one aka empire strikes back and on top of that Vader wouldn't say the most iconic line ever in starwars I am your father so yeah I do agree why george did that.

How do you tell someone you chopped of their father's limbs? How do you tell someone that you trained one of the most feared members of the Empire, and that it is your father? I've come to look at it as Obi-Wan just not knowing how to approach the subject, while still feeling guilty.

How would that conversation on Tatooine go? Ben: "I don't know how to tell you this but you're actually the son of my former apprentice and greatest fallen Jedi of all time who is now teamed up with the only other being more powerful than him in the entire galaxy. Oh also they lead a galactic empire with basically unlimited resources." Luke: "Sir this is a Wendy's." Ben: "Yeah so you need to become a Jedi and stop them." Luke: "Bro, I'm just returning your droids."

A very long time ago, in a place called the 70s, I learned to read, and I loved it. Also I love movies. I learned that book readers look at a story differently than how movie fans look at the story. This is something that a director has to be aware of and think about. I feel that George would have been a natural story teller/author. I don't know it he's aware of it, but Star Wars movies seem to have both aspects. I know Star Wars was ment to be a movie, however as a bookster, I found the input that brings the story alive.

Another thing that always bothered me...until the Clone Wars. Vader had no command of language. "Come with me son, and together we'll rule the galaxy as one." Obviously, Luke heard "let's be evil together" Perhaps "Come, son. Before we continue this fight neither of us want, let's have a talk." Would may have yielded a far different story. However, since the Clone Wars, I have learned Anakin simply spoke what he felt.

In the originals before Luke could adjust and fully understand what was really going on, his nievity was the only way he could not just survive but to succeed. Doubt Leia would ever be a knight. Remember Jedi had different talents. Even some who were skilled mediators. Yes, the Force can enhance a jedi's ability, it can go only so far. Luke was a natural athlete and pilot. He had the reflexes that allowed him to adapt and change as he fought, the Force added to that. Before I upset the women, let me be clear. I am speaking about Luke and Leia. Vader was left without a large part of Anakin's body. He couldn't do all that gymnastics crap Anakin was famous for. I'm not going to get into all that forms 4 and 7 nonsense, sufficient to say Vader was basically forced to adopt a hack and slash style using his weight and power to overcome his opponent. Leia just didn't have the body and mind to counter that, a very abbreviated Jedi training and the Force could only help so much. Regardless of the desires of Obi-wan and Yoda. Apparently they still hadn't learn the lessons of life that caused the Force to abbandon the Jedi of the old Republic. They still weren't listening. The Force wanted/needed it to be Luke. Let's be honest, Leia would have been crushed by Vader after two of his hits, regardless if she she could parry.

When you are a psychotic old man who tries to manipulate a kid into murdering his own father who happened to be the man who used to consider you as his father since his mother was killed and he was just a poor slave boy who never got a proper father figure and instead was still used as a slave his whole life to the jedi order then to the sith who LOVED you and TRUSTED you for years until instead of getting him a psychologist you cut his freaking legs off and leave him on the side of a lava river to die slowly and painfully not even stopping for 1 second to help or at least end his misery 😶✋

So setting the kid up to kill his dad and daddy's puppetmaster, or maybe act as glorified bait to cause the two Sith to destroy each other, all the while crossing your fingers and hoping Junior doesn't learn it until it's too late (and putting your real money on Leia)? Instead, he learns the truth under Worst Case Scenario and realizes how he got played. They were so lucky (screw the Force - 100% luck) he turned out to be more Padme's boy as far as temperament.

Ben ," Oh yeah he was my apprentice for a long time he was the chosen one you see. Was a great pilot and very handy with a lightsaber, used to be quick with one liners too. We went on many adventures and he used to live right here on Tatooine you know. He won the big Boonta eve pod race was a slave at the time won his freedom . That's when he met you mother the queen of Naboo at the time he nocked her up with you and your twin sister . He used to hang out with the emperor Palatine who wanted to have him on the Jedi counsel but we would not let him be a Master. So things got a little harsh and well yada yada yada we got into a big fight I left him for dead on Mustafa all cut and burned up and you mother died in child birth . We decided to split you up, Leia is a princess on Alderaan and well here you are a dirt farmer trying not to get killed by sand people. Which buy the way your father killed a whole tribe of in retaliation for them killing you grandmother, I guess that is why they are a little pissed at you. Any way technically you dad is still around goes by the name Darth Vader now He is kind of Palatines right hand enforcer . So now if you will just come along with me I'll teach you about the force and some Jedi stuff and you can go and rescue princess Leia I did mention that she is your sister so don't get any romantic ideas about her. I know there are not that many women around here. Ok so if you just go ahead and kill your dad and help wipe out the Empire that should fix the big mess we got going on. Oh yeah that would be much better than the half truth he told Luke. Bet Luke would have thought old Ben had spent too much time in the suns .

I think Obi-Wan was still dealing with some PTSD. And he couldn't bring himself to come to tell Luke. It's almost as if he convinced himself that Anakin was gone as a way to deal with the trauma of what happened. Sort of as a self-therapy mechanism. Obi-Wan saw it as Vader completely consuming Anakin. It wasn't the best way to go about it on Ben's part but it makes sense to me. This is pretty much headcanon but I think it has some weight to it. As a side note I think it would be interesting if they explore the effects of trauma and PTSD in the Kenobi series.

It was a great way to solve a story problem and best of all it feels natural. Having grown up on the films decades after their initial release, it's not something glaring or obvious. It just is. If the information wasn't available that it wasn't originally written that way, I don't see many people really noticing it, the same way most of us didn't realize the end of IV was saved in the editing room with voiceovers and inserted clips. Unless you know the hole was there and you're looking for the spots where they stitched in new pieces, you're not really aware of it. No retconning, just problem solving within the story organically. Bravo, Master Lucas!

THIS is the main thing that made me permanently lose ALL respect for Obi-Wan. NOT that he lied, that when his lie came out, he used a lame excuse to attempt to cover for his lie ('Well, it's true from a certain point of view...'). I remember seeing this in the theater back in the day, and my reaction was, "if I were Luke, I'd say, 'You've been lying to me all this time, old man? What other lies have you been telling me all along? Looks like my father was right about you. Screw you, I'm going to join Pop'." Now, combine this with his failure in the prequel days to Anakin, and he really doesn't have that good of a track record. I guess Luke is a far better man than most all of us, because I think the vast majority would react to Kenobi's lame, manipulative excuse the same as me. I thought his way of lying, and then trying to cover the lie with a bullsh*t justification was smarmy in the extreme. And that "certain point of view" bull still bothers me to this day.

I always thought that Ben thought telling Luke who his father really was might make Luke more likely to join Vader if their paths crossed, so he told him he was the killer to make Luke less likely to listen to Vader. Also watching lots of reaction video's lately people seem surprised that Luke thinks first of Leia when told about a sister, bit i thought it would seem obvious to Luke after he was able to call out to her in Empire. Also reactors always frown when Leia says she's always known about him being her brother but I always figured she was thinking more that she felt a connection to him rather than specifically he is my brother.

Sorryfor the off-topic, but could you make a video of why Vader wants to overthrow the emperor? I mean he begged Luke to join him and rule the galaxy together, which is against the rule of two.

Also, everyone forgets that Obi-Wan planned to tell Luke the full truth as soon as they got to Alderaan to meet up with Leia and Bail Organa. The plan was to reunite the twins once the time was right. That would have been the appropriate moment to introduce them to the whole backstory. Yoda likely would have sensed it and possibly left Dagobah as well, or else summoned the twins there with Obi-Wan's guidance to train them both. That plan was detoured by the Death Star. But at the end of his duel with Vader, Obi-Wan saw Luke boarding the Falcon with Leia, and foresaw that everything would be all right in the end. Yes, it was rather manipulative of Obi-Wan. But not dishonest. He told farmboy Luke exactly what he needed to know, in his limited understanding at the time. The wrong information could have been catastrophic, driving him towards the Dark Side. Also, here's a side theory: the way that Luke was strung along with Han in competition for Leia's affection kept Han in the game - long enough for him to save the day at the Battle of Yavin, the rescue of Luke from the Wampa, and the escape to Cloud City. None of those events might have happened that way, if they had known that Luke and Leia were siblings all along. The three were locked in a love triangle that kept them fast friends and allies. Perhaps Han would have simply left the Rebels back at Yavin if it weren't for the "What if a princess and a guy like me" moment. So perhaps, in the will of the Force, it was all meant to be.
