lost star wars return of the jedi sceneLucasfilm

Obi-Wan Kenobi didn't want to be a liar.

That's the surprising discovery "Star Wars" fans made when a deleted scene from "Return of the Jedi" was shared online.

A Facebook group called "Return of the Jedi long lost Edit Droid Laserdisc Discovered" (H/T to The Hollywood Reporter) has been posting lost, never-released footage found on a relic piece of technology.

In this recovered scene, Yoda is on his death bed when Luke Skywalker asks if Darth Vader is truly his father. Yoda confirms it, then drops a bombshell (at least, to fans).

"Obi-Wan would have told you long ago had I let him," Yoda wheezes.

Yoda's confession reveals that Obi-Wan wasn't such a "jerk" after all.

Watch Mark Hamill's take from the scene:
