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
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.
