In one of the most exciting pieces of news released this week, it seems Liam Neeson is set to reprise his role as Qui-Gon Jinn in the upcoming Disney+ Kenobi series.
The news, first reported by Small Screen, will see Neeson seemingly reunite with Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi in some capacity for the first time since The Phantom Menace.
While the Irish actor only made one appearance as the legendary Qui-Gon, he left a lasting impact on the fan base and will have many fans excited to see his return.
It was Qui-Gon who discovered Anakin Skywalker and was originally set to train the young Jedi, before his untimely death at the hands of Darth Maul left the youngster in the hands of Obi Wan.
While Qui-Gon is most likely going to appear as a force ghost, I can’t wait to see him reunite with his former apprentice Obi-Wan.
The news has come shortly after it was revealed that Hayden Christensen would also be returning to the franchise and reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker.
