In a way, we’ve anticipated a return for Qui-Gon Jinn for quite some time, as Obi-Wan has been working in some measure to be able to see his former mentor as a Force Ghost. It finally happened in the closing minutes of the finale, and that paves the way for something more in a potential season 2. Nothing is confirmed as of yet, so we will have to wait and see what the future holds.
Take a look at our full review of the Obi-Wan Kenobi finale! Take a look below to get some more insight on this big episode, including the huge cameo. Once you do just that, remember to SUBSCRIBE to Matt & Jess on YouTube for future coverage of this show and others within the greater Star Wars universe.
So why did Neeson come back for this role? Speaking in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, here is some of what the Taken actor had to say:
“I certainly didn’t want anyone else playing Qui-Gon Jinn, and I wanted to show my respect for George [Lucas] and that mythical world that he created … Plus, Ewan [McGregor] is a pal, and I loved working with him during The Phantom Menace 25 years ago.”
Neeson first appeared as this character during Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 25 years ago, so this was clearly a big return for him. Even if we never seen Qui-Gon again, there is something quite beautiful knowing that he can now live with Obi-Wan. The two have forged a connection that is deeper than life and death, and he can serve as a guide in a wide array of different forms.
