"He's just returned from a border dispute on Ansion."
Mace Windu, in reference to Obi-Wan Kenobi[4]

During the Separatist Crisis,[3] the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi[4] and his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, were involved in a very important mission[6] concerning a border dispute on Ansion,[4] which left the galaxy staggered.[3] Upon returning from the Ansion dispute, Skywalker and Kenobi became involved in trying to stop the plot to assassinate Senator Amidala.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

The border dispute on Ansion first appeared in The Approaching Storm, a 2002 Star Wars Legends novel written by Alan Dean Foster as a tie-in to the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones.[7] It became canon when it was mentioned in the aforementioned film.[4]



Notes and references[]

  1. Choose Your Destiny: An Obi-Wan & Anakin Adventure
  2. Brotherhood establishes that Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi took part in the mission to Taris several months before the First Battle of Geonosis, which was depicted in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. As Attack of the Clones establishes that the border dispute on Ansion occurred immediately before Kenobi and Skywalker were involved in the lead up to the Battle of Geonosis, the border dispute must occur at some point after the mission to Taris.
