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.

Obi-Wan 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 Ben Kenobi. Soon, Kenobi reveals himself to be an exiled Jedi Knight, and begins to tutor Luke in the ways of the Force, a mysterious energy field harnessed by the Jedi. In the prequel films, Obi-Wan first appears in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace as a Jedi padawan, or apprentice, and eventually comes to mentor the young Anakin Skywalker, Luke's father. In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, he is shown to have progressed from the rank of Jedi Padawan to Jedi Knight. Finally, in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, he becomes a Jedi Master, fighting in the Clone Wars alongside Anakin, his pupil and best friend. He holds these titles under the Galactic Republic until it is replaced by the Galactic Empire — due in large part to Anakin's betrayal — and he is forced to go into hiding.
