Actor Liam Neeson, who famously played Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn in the Star Wars prequel film says he would be in on appearing in the highly-anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series. This is a change from Neeson’s previous comments saying he had no desire to return to a galaxy far, far away.
Neeson discussed the idea while speaking with Collider you can check out what he had to say below.
“I’ll be honest with you: I haven’t heard that at all. Sure, I’d be up for that, yeah.”
I would enjoy seeing Neeson return as Qui-Gon Jinn. Even if it were a small, cameo-like appearance it would bring a little more cohesiveness to the galaxy. With Hayden Christensen already set to return in some capacity, throwing Qui-Gon back in the mix would be a nice touch to the series. Of course, Neeson would have to appear as a blue glowy Force ghost unless it was a flashback, but either way, I think it would be pleasing to the majority of Star Wars fans.
Disney’s small-screen efforts are shaping up much better than the big-screen endeavors. The Mandalorian is a huge success and the House of Mouse has already commissioned spin-off series that will create a Star Wars version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
