SPECULATION What if Obi-Wan had hidden Leia on Tatooine instead?

    If you are going to go this route, it's implied seeing as there is no reveal of his "real" last name only that he calls himself that and so do others. That implies that he was always known as Skywalker. Can you point out where in A New Hope his surname is ever brought into question?

    Can you point to any moment in A New Hope where they called him anything BUT Luke Skywalker? He busts in on the Princess and says "I'm Luke Skywalker". The reason there isn't a scene where Luke's name was addressed is because there wasn't any need to at the time because it was a non-issue. I can't find evidence of something that doesn't exist, in this case a different last name for Luke on Tatooine. It only became strange that he should keep his last name after TESB retconned their relationship. Which is fine with me, I'm not putting down the franchise. My enjoyment of it is not based on the notion that the exact story of Ep. 1-6 were sitting in George's sock drawer waiting to be unleashed on the world. I personally find it impressive how he adapted to the situations he found himself in, to the reaction of fans and was able to create the story we all know and love on the fly from the source material he had been working on for so long. Have you read the Journal Of The Whills and early drafts of Ep. IV and V scripts? Not that I recommend them, I personally find scripts boring and I'm glad Star Wars evolved from the earlier concepts, but it's all there. It's not a big deal though. It doesn't ruin the movies knowing that some of these plot points and relationships evolved through the course of writing the films.

    Leia could have easily made the choice to allow Luke to train her as a Jedi. She didn't.

    Two words: Leia Darklighter. That mustache would have been harder to resist than the Dark Side.

    Also it might have been Bauk on the ship rather than Luke so Leia, Ben, Chewie & Han would have to rescue him from the death star. While Luke is left on Aldara.
    In which case BY BY Luke.
    & Leia would almost certainly have shown more interest in becoming a Jedi after meeting Ben & with no political duties getting in the way.

    If she had moisturefarming as her upbringing not posh royalty and then rebellion leader of the people, I think her desires would change.

    She did not choose the course of jedi because of the education that Bail gave her

    With all the gender swapping today (Thor/Batwoman in the comics, GhostBusters) this could actually happen if SW was released now. Surely with Kennedy at the helm... heheh

    Batwoman was a thing looooong before the gender swapping thing came into fashion. Besides, I'm nearly certain that the only non-Bruce Wayne Batmen (when Bruce was still physically capable of being Batman) were Dick Grayson and Jean-Paul Valley.

    No, there is a character called Kathy Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, that first appeared in a comic book from 1956.

    We may have seen the ObiWan/Vader showdown on Tatooine.

    Leia leaves her training with Yoda. Goes to Cloud City, well you know what happens and.......

    Obi-Wan never told you about your mother and father.

    He told me enough! He told me you killed my family!

    No, I......
