"Well I can't say I really remember. I was very young when I left my homeworld."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Anakin Skywalker[2]

Stewjon was a planet[3] that was the homeworld of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a male human Jedi Master.[1] Between 32 and 29 BBY,[4] Kenobi told his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, that he did not remember leaving his homeworld.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

"This is one of the first things I wrote in the very first script. He comes from the planet Stewjon."
―George Lucas, joking about Obi-Wan Kenobi's planet of origin[5]

The name of Obi-Wan Kenobi's homeworld was coined by George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars. At the Celebration V convention in Orlando, Florida, comedian and talk-show host Jon Stewart interviewed Lucas, and Stewart asked for the name of Obi-Wan Kenobi's home planet. Lucas jokingly replied that it was "Stewjon," a tuckerization of Stewart's name.[6][5] The official StarWars.com Encyclopedia entry on Obi-Wan Kenobi later listed Stewjon as Kenobi's homeworld.[1]

According to "The Trouble at Tibrin" author Landry Q. Walker, Stewjon was the homeworld of Tadd Marteens, a farmer who joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic after the Battle of Yavin.[7]

Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide dates Anakin Skywalker's birth to 41 BBY, and since Anakin is 12 years old in Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin, it must take place in 29 BBY. Therefore, Age of Republic - Obi-Wan Kenobi 1 must take place in between 29 BBY and 32 BBY.
