In The Force Awakens we see Rey seemingly beckoned by magical voices that only she can hear emanating from something Maz Kanata’s castle basement on Takodana. Rey runs around looking for the source of the voices she’s mysteriously hearing, opens up a wooden storage chest and find’s Luke/Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber which was lost in Luke’s duel with Darth Vader at Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back.
Okay, with that established is it at all possible that the wooden storage chest Rey discovers and opens to find the lightsaber in Maz Kanata’s basement is actually Ben (Obi Wan) Kenobi’s wooden storage chest from his
pied-à-terre/bachelor pad hut on Tatooine? I mean Ben just ditched that place without giving anyone any notice. It’s conceivable his belongings ended up on space-eBay, right?
