Liam Neeson Confirms He’s Returning To Play Qui-Gon Jinn And Fans Have Gone Wild

Fans have been sent into overdrive following the Star Wars Celebration event,

with Lucasfilm unveiling several new trailers, projects, and hints to send super fans into a tizzy.

One of those projects will see Neeson reprise his role as Qui-Gon Jinn, the green lightsaber-wielding Jedi Knight.

However, it's worth noting that Neeson's return is only a voiceover.

He will appear in Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, which is an animated series set to drop on Disney+, according to IndieWire.

The one-off episodes will explore the backstories of some of the biggest characters from

the Star Wars franchise, including Count Dooku, Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka.

Fans have been hoping for years that we would see Qui-Gon on our screens once more

after he was killed in Episode I: A Phantom Menace, so any news is good news.
