Liam Neeson would love to play Qui-Gon Jinn in new Star Wars. Make this happen!

September 8th, 2014 by Marc Comments

The guys at, em, HeyUGuys interviewed our very own Liam Neeson and asked him if he’d been approached about coming back for Star Wars Episode VII as Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and, while he hasn’t been asked, he did give a pretty impassioned response…

And, let’s be honest, it would be very easy to take him back, given the revelation at the end of Episode III.

Would you like to see him return? The correct answer is ‘hell yes!’


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
