Surprise Obi-Wan Finale Actor Explains Why They Came Back



This week’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series finale featured a surprise cameo, and now the actor who showed up has discussed returning in this unexpected way in the new Disney+ series. Spoilers for Obi-Wan Kenboi follow below.

Liam Neeson returned to the Star Wars universe in Obi-Wan’s latest episode, reprising his character from the prequel series, Jedi Knight Qui-Gon. Previous episodes hinted that Qui-Gon might reappear somehow, but it finally happened in the series finale.

Neeson spoke to The Hollywood Reporter why he wanted to wear his dress again, 25 years after The Phantom Menace.

“I definitely didn’t want anyone else to play Qui-Gon Jinn, and I wanted to show my respect for George. [Lucas] and this mythical world that he created,” Neeson said. Also, Ewan [McGregor] is a friend, and I loved working with him on The Phantom Menace 25 years ago.”

Qui-Gon was killed by Darth Maul in the 1999 film. His return was hinted at in 2005’s Revenge of the Sith, when Yoda told Obi-Wan he could teach him to speak with the ghost of Qui- Gon. In the Obi-Wan series finale, this finally paid off, when Obi-Wan communicated with Qui-Gon from beyond the grave.

“I was still there, Obi-Wan. You just weren’t ready to see,” Qui-Gon told Obi-Wan.

Obi-Wan Kenboi’s six-episode miniseries is now complete, and you can check out the gallery above to see the Easter eggs and references you might have missed in the final episode.

A season 2 has not been announced, but Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen have said they will return. In the meantime, the next Star Wars TV series, Andor, is coming in August. The Mandalorian season 3, meanwhile, arrives in February 2023.
