Return of the Jedi - Ben is Owen's brother


Return of the Jedi novelization handwritten manuscript page in which Obi Wan, in telling Luke of Luke's origin story, divulges that he (Obi Wan) was Ben's brother. I came up with this idea because of the way Owen spoke to Luke so dismissively of Ben - it struck me as bad blood between brothers. This page also humanizes R2D2, as he tries to comfort Luke. Accompanied by a letter of provenance, signed, dated May the Fourth (be with you) 2021, with my college ID, and some explanation of my thought process leading to the Obi Wan/Owen backstory.
