Agentcoop: Mr. Lucas, how do you explain that in Star Wars Obi-Wan tells Luke when he met his father he was a great pilot, but in Menace he's just a little boy?
BigGeorge: Well, my kids thought...
Because he was
a great pilot. See, pod race. Humans couldn't even compete in that and here he was, a child, competing and winning.
Agentcoop: And how come Obi-Wan tells Luke that Yoda is the Jedi that trains him, but in the movie Liam Neeson trains him?
BigGeorge: Um, well, the power of myth...
Yoda trained the younglings. He obviously made a big impression on Obi-Wan. Probably there were lollipops. You know how kids are, they remember fondly things accompanied by sugar.
