Wikipedia: Obi-Wan Kenobi
Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, within the original trilogy he is portrayed by Alec Guinness, while in the prequel trilogy a younger version of the character is portrayed by Ewan McGregor. In the original trilogy, he is a mentor to Luke Skywalker, to whom he introduces the ways of the Jedi. In the prequel trilogy, he is a master and friend to Anakin Skywalker. He is frequently featured as a main character in various other Star Wars media.

Alec Guinness’s portrayal of Obi-Wan in Star Wars (1977) remains the only time an actor has received an Oscar nomination for acting in a Star Wars film.

JUST DESSERTS FOR SESAME IN SPACE
Sesame Street travels to “a milky way galaxy far, far away” for Star S’mores, a spot-on parody of Star Wars. There’s Flan Solo, Luke Piewalker, Only One Cannoli and plenty of other dessert-themed puns in the video designed to teach self-control.
