In a new interview with ComicBook.com, 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 MakingStarWars.net 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.
