Liam Neeson’s Qui-Gon Jinn is rumored to return in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
The Star Wars shows on Disney Plus have had no shortage of appearances from fan-favorite characters. It sounds like Obi-Wan Kenobi will be no different with the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader, and many others. Despite denying his involvement, it sounds like Liam Neeson’s Qui-Gon Jinn will also have a role in the upcoming series.
This rumor comes from Jason Ward of Making Star Wars, who shared on his podcast that he knows Liam Neeson’s Qui-Gon Jinn is in Obi-Wan Kenobi but doesn’t know if he will appear physically or if it will just be his voice.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars was when Liam Neeson last played Qui-Gon Jinn. In those appearances, Qui-Gon was a force ghost during the Mortis arc and just a voice during Yoda’s force journey in season six. With the end of Revenge of the Sith teasing Obi-Wan Kenobi’s force ghost training, it would be a surprise if he didn’t connect with Qui-Gon at some point in the upcoming series.
Lucasfilm describes the Star Wars story as a special event series for Disney Plus, and there are not many details on the upcoming Star Wars series at this time. However, we know the series will feature a rematch between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader ten years after Revenge of the Sith and before their final confrontation in A New Hope.
Directed by Deborah Chow from Joby Harold’s scripts, the series stars Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie. The series will also see the return of legendary Star Wars composer John Williams, who scored a theme.
Obi-Wan Kenobi will hit Disney Plus on May 25, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming series, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
