Liam Neeson pretends he doesn’t want to play Qui-Gon in a TV series

In a new interview with, Liam Neeson says he’d like to reprise his role of Qui-Gon Jinn in a Star Wars movie, but not in a TV series.

“Oh, I think so, yeah, yeah, yeah, I think so … if it was a film. Yeah, I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to TV, I must admit, I just like the big screen, you know?”

Neeson’s statement strongly implies that he won’t return as Qui-Gon in the upcoming series Obi-Wan Kenobi. But there’s a pretty good chance that the actor is lying to keep his return a secret.

Neeson actually already played Qui-Gon on the small screen: he reprised his role in several episodes of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Moreover, very reliable sites like and Bespin Bulletin claim that Qui-Gon’s spirit will definitely appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Therefore I’m sure that Neeson is trolling us.
