It was a surprised Liam Neeson who learned that Star Wars fans still appreciate Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn as much as ever.
Held in December 2020, Disney’s Investor Day saw many exciting announcements about the different worlds of big-eared studios. On the side of Star Wars, the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader for the spin-off series Obi-wan kenobi made noise. For good reason, the duo particularly marked the Prelogy, and it is therefore with great impatience that the fans await their return. What also to wonder if other key figures of the trilogy Star wars from the early 2000s could also make an appearance. Notably Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan’s mentor played by Liam Neeson in The Phantom Menace.

The question was put directly to the person concerned by Collider, during an interview for the promotion of his latest film, The Marksman. At first surprised to hear that some fans wanted him back in the franchise, he finally responded positively when asked if he would agree to reprise the role of Qui-Gon Jinn. “Of course I would be up for it, yes.” Aside from via flashbacks, if the Jedi Master were to make an appearance on the show, it would no doubt be in the form of a Force ghost, which Obi-Wan learned to communicate with through Yoda. Another iconic Jedi that fans of Star wars hope to see again on Disney +, Mace Widu, played on the screen by Samuel L Jackson.
