We won’t lie to each other. After the last Star Wars trilogy, the franchise rating wasn’t necessarily the highest, neither with fans nor with actors. Even the preface remains a largely unexplained (and inexplicable) success to this day. But power has made a comeback, especially thanks to the Mandalorian series on Disney +, real commercial and critical success. That success now requires others with multiple series. Among these is the one about the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi who will see the return of Ewan McGregor. An idea that Liam Neeson, who played Qui-Gon Jinn, seems to like.
Liam Neeson wasn’t really following the Star Wars news
Since the shooting of The phantom menace In 1999 it can be said that Liam Neeson has come a long way. The actor, who starred in the Taken saga, Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, and over 20 other films, has made a place for himself in Hollywood. Most of all, he generally kept his distance from the Star Wars universe (we can still hear his voice The Rise of Skywalker). While promoting his next film: The veteran, Liam Neeson was still being interviewed about the saga. In fact, many fans would love to see him repeat his role as Qui-Gon Jinn on screen. An announcement that seemed to surprise him.
I’ve never heard that before (…) But I think Star Wars is slowly disappearing from the cinema scene, right?
Asked by Collider Liam Neeson has indicated whether he would like to at least accompany him as a cameo on the screen.
Of course I would love to come back!
Over the years, Liam Neeson had already given his vote The Clone Wars. However, it wasn’t a project of this magnitude like the Disney + series. It remains to be seen whether Disney + will offer him a return. If we push Liam Neeson a bit, he could even vote for the new Star Wars game that Ubisoft announced this week.
