    In several Legends sources, Obi-Wan Kenobi considers that he may remember his parents as well as his brother Owen.

    In addition to the Legends sources, however, Owen Kenobi is also mentioned in the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi novelization. Due to the rules of canon, does this make Obi-Wan's "memories" of "Owen Kenobi" Canon or purely Legends?

    I'd say it's purely Legends, of course, until it's mentioned after/during the revamp of current canon states it. My understanding is that just because it's a novelization of the films originally, it's still Legends due to it not actually being written after Quarter 3 of 2014. Currently there's two Junior Novelizations of Return of the Jedi which are canon: "Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side!" by Tom Angleberger, and "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" by Ryder Windham.

    I don't believe either of those books mention Obiwan remembering family; However, there's yet an Adult Novel released to fit current canon, so you never know.
