In a recent interview with Yahoo Movies, Actor Liam Neeson said he would be interested in picking back up his lightsaber and becoming Qui-Gon Jinn once again for the Star Wars franchise!! Liam played the character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and also voiced in the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series. One problem does pop though, (SPOILER ALERT) Qui-Gon Jinn died at the end of The Phantom Menace.
So how would the character come back? Actor Liam Neeson had an idea or two saying:
“It’s story, you know? Qui-Gon Jinn was mentor to Darth Vader, so I don’t know [how he would return], unless you went back in time or he becomes a hologram or something. He’s a Jedi, anything could happen, it’s Star Wars world!”
Liam went on to talk about the crossguard lightsaber featured in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens saying:
“I had a couple of worries about that lightsaber [the cross-guard version featured at the close of the teaser trailer for The Force Awakens},” the actor reflected on what he’d seen of J.J. Abrams’ efforts. “I thought, if it comes anywhere close to you, it’s like having a jet of [burning] fluid hitting your clothes and hitting your skin, but I’m sure they’ve thought that out.”
“He’d use the nice green one, still,” Neeson said of his own character’s weapon choice. “I still have it. I keep it polished.”
