Turns Out Liam Neeson Is Well Up For Playing Qui-Gon Jinn Again


Star Wars is a franchise with a huge amount of content behind it and basically infinite possibilities. Whilst Liam Neeson debuted – and died – in one of the most panned entries to the franchise, The Phantom Menace as Obi Wan Kenobi’s Master Qui Gon, his character was well loved and fans have been clamouring for a comeback for years.

Now Neeson has weighed in on fan speculation.

“I know in the Star Wars world anything is possible.

“In the first one, The Phantom Menace, I died but we know – you know – Jedis come back and stuff, but no one’s been in touch. We’ll see.”

Speculation has been rife about an Obi Wan film since Disney bought the Star Wars franchise back in 2012 and announced the set of sequel movies and spin-offs that have so far included 2016’s Rogue One and this years upcoming Solo, the spin off based on the murky past of hero Han.

With a possible film set around Obi Wan’s post Revenge of the Sith apparently confirmed back in December according to a Telegraph article, are Neeson’s timely comments a signal of his potential involvement as Qui Gon? We can only hope!

Here’s that infamous moment, Liam bowed out of the story.


Up next: Star Wars actors have torn apart a fan-made recut of the film that features no women.
