Event
The droids' escape pod landed in the desert wastes of Tatooine, far from any form of civilization. R2-D2 and C-3PO left the pod, with 3PO not knowing what planet they were on or what R2's true mission was. Unclear as to which direction to head in, the droids argued about where to go before splitting up over their disagreement; R2 set off on his own, intent on finding Kenobi, while 3PO left in the opposite direction. 3PO wandered in the desert before spotting a sandcrawler

and fitted with a restraining bolt, as the Jawas planned on selling him as well as the many other droids in their vehicle. Later, R2 faced similar circumstances. While making his way through a canyon, he was discovered by the same Jawas, who stunned him and brought him aboard the crawler, where the two droids reunited.
Next morning the sandcrawler arrived at the Lars moisture farm, where moisture farmer Owen Lars

. Owen and Skywalker inspected what the Jawas had for sale and ultimately purchased Artoo and Threepio, with Owen intending to use them as farm workers. While Skywalker was cleaning them, he discovered a partial version of the princess' message for Kenobi. Although Skywalker had never heard the name Obi-Wan Kenobi, he did know of a Ben Kenobi who lived beyond the Dune Sea, and was unaware that they were the same person. Skywalker told his aunt and uncle what he had discovered, and Owen let slip that Kenobi knew Skywalker's father, then-known as Anakin Skywalker
