Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. He is one of several primary characters in the Star Wars series. Along with Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, R2-D2, and C-3PO, he is one of the few major characters to appear in all of the six Star Wars films. He is portrayed in the original trilogy by Alec Guinness as a supporting protagonist and in the prequel trilogy by Ewan McGregor as a major character.

Kenobi first appears in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Luke Skywalker, the film's main protagonist, first believes that Kenobi is a mysterious hermit known as Old Ben Kenobi. Soon, Kenobi reveals himself to be an exiled Jedi Knight, and begins to tutor Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force, a natural power harnessed by the Jedi. In the prequel films, Kenobi first appears in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace as a young Jedi. Soon, Kenobi progresses from apprentice to master on the Jedi High Council.

In 2003, the American Film Institute selected Obi-Wan Kenobi as the 37th greatest movie hero of all time.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is first introduced in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977), played by Alec Guinness. He is first seen rescuing Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) from a group of Tusken Raiders, who ambush him during a search for a missing droid, R2-D2 (Kenny Baker). Obi-Wan reveals that he knew Luke's father, Anakin Skywalker, and served with him in the Clone Wars as a Jedi Knight. He gives Luke Anakin's lightsaber, and tells him that "a young Jedi named Darth Vader... betrayed and murdered your father." Obi-Wan offers to instruct Luke in the ways of The Force, but Luke initially refuses. He changes his mind after his aunt and uncle are murdered, however, and Obi-Wan takes him along to deliver the Death Star Plans to Alderaan.
