Liam Neeson even took the opportunity to clarify a long-held theory about the iconic weapon, namely that it has a button and is not activated by force telekinesis. “And everyone thinks, ‘Oh yeah, you just do it with your thoughts, don’t you?’ I say, “No, it’s a red button. There it is. It’s just a red button, “joked the actor.

Liam Neeson’s return as Qui-Gon Jinn has spread thanks to the upcoming Disney + series Obi-Wan Kenobi. In a recent discussion of the role, Neeson was quick to reaffirm his willingness to return to a galaxy far, far away. “Sure, I would be ready for this, yes,” Neeson said with a smile on his face when asked if he would like to be on the Obi-Wan series.

Neeson was also quick to point out that in the past he provided the voice for the character but was never asked to revive the legendary Jedi in live action. “I did the voice for Qui-Gon Jinn in a few animated versions of it,” he said. “I can’t remember the names. Me and Sam Jackson made our Jedi Knights for these. I think I made two of them. But in the movie I wasn’t addressed, no. I didn’t really follow me don’t know if it’s over, I heard you made a movie about Harrison [Ford]Han Solo, and that there was a little trouble with it. “

If his clear and concise response to the return of the role of Qui-Gon Jinn wasn’t enough, then the firm clinging to his lightsaber is a clear indication that Obi-Wan Kenobi is the perfect opportunity to bring Neeson back into the franchise.

Hayden Christensen will also repeat the role of Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader, with the plot resuming 10 years after the former Jedi Knight was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. If anything, Qui-Gon Jinn must be brought back as a power spirit so that he can see the result of this little child being freed from life slavery all those years ago. It’s up to you, Jinn.
