Recently Collider published an interview with Liam Neeson:
Collider: Have you ever been approached, at any point, by Disney or Lucasfilm to reprise your Star Wars character in anything, over the years?
NEESON: I’ve done the voice for Qui-Gon Jinn in a couple of the animated versions of it. I can’t remember the names of them. Myself and Sam Jackson did our Jedi knights for those. I think I did two of them. But on film, I haven’t been approached, no. I haven’t really been following them, to be honest. I don’t know if they’ve come to an end. I heard they did a film of Harrison [Ford]’s character, Han Solo, and that there was a bit of trouble with that. What do you think? Are Star Wars fans finished with it?
Collider: Especially now with Disney+, they could do limited series for various different characters because there is still so much there. I think it’s just a matter of finding something that people are interested in.
It’s possible that Liam hasn’t been asked. But it’s equally possible that he may return as a Force Ghost in the Obi-Wan series, and is attempting to throw people off the tracks. Fans may recall that Ewan McGregor had to lie about not being asked.
Thanks to Price of Reason for the tip.
