“True… from a certain point of view.” In other words, “Alternate Facts.”

I always thought this response from Obi Wan was a cop-out. I always thought he should have just owned up to his deception, admitting that he did it to protect Luke, but that it ultimately proved not to be the right thing to do.

“The Wrath of Khan” sounds way more awesome than “The Revenge/Vengeance of Khan” would have, and I’m glad they went with that.

No, “alternative facts” is a word used by propaganda, as facts by definition are true (if not then they aren’t facts). Idea of providing “alternative facts” referee specifically to providing lies which would be by common people recognized as facts. That is not what Obi Wan did. Though it is what Lucas did, pretending consciously or unconsciously that he has greater vision then he did in reality.

Lucas’ failure to plan his saga, and the eventual retcon he would have to write, would become one of the best things about Star Wars.

While originally a simple explanation for a plot hole, it would eventually end up meaning something else: that even the Jedi do not know everything about the Force, and aren’t always right. Obi Wan isn’t always right. Luke isn’t always right. YODA isn’t always right.

The jedi would have been the perfect know-it-alls, whom you are not allowed to disagree with as a member of the audience, if not for that one, seemingly accidental, line.

Damn… I really like “Return of the Jedi”, but I would love to see the movie Kasdan had envisioned.

However, it is strange to hear that he objected to bringing back the Death Star because we have already seen it and then he worked on the script for Episode VII, which once again had a Death Star-like superweapon that gets blown up in the end.
