What If Qui-Gon Jinn Reappear in Obi-Wan Kenobi? Link Tank: Could Qui-Gon Jinn Reappear in Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Finally, Obi-Wan Kenobi is delivering on its promise of bringing back fond memories for Star Wars fans. In addition to Darth Vader returning, there are rumors that animated characters will make their live-action debuts on the show this year.
Liam Neeson’s Qui-Gon Jinn could make a comeback, too.
Bespin Bulletin, a reliable source for Star Wars rumors, is the source of the current rumor. As of now, the speculation surrounding Neeson’s return as Qui-Gon is just a rumor. Obi-Wan’s journey through the show would be impacted if he plays a Force Ghost.
It’s possible that, as the Jedi order crumbles around him and he witnesses the end of the Jedi, Obi-Wan searches for a way to reconnect with his old master.
In the wake of the death of his brother and Padawan, Obi-Wan’s world must have been shattered. So, would the character of Qui-Gon Jinn work in the show? Or would it be detrimental to the story if he were to be a part of it?
What Might Qui-gon Bring to Obi-wan?
After Anakin’s death, we don’t know how Obi-Wan feels about himself. Even though we know what happened right after Anakin became Darth Vader and before Obi-Wan’s death at end of A New Hope, we don’t know everything about this time period other than the animated world in Star Wars Rebels.
Qui-Gon Jinn’s presence not only informs Obi-Wan’s current state but also gives us, the audience, a sense of closure on the relationship between the two of them.
Their training together was only briefly explored in the Phantom Menace, and then Obi-Wan had to train Anakin. As a Force Ghost, Qui-Gon is there for Obi-Wan when he needs someone the most. As far as I know, this is the best use of the character.

Is It Possible That Obi-wan Kenobi Will Be Too Nostalgic?
In my opinion, Ewan McGregor’s performance as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequel series was one of the series’ most memorable and iconic moments.
However, I am concerned that the show is relying too heavily on the return of beloved characters. We haven’t heard anything about the characters coming our way from the anime books or world, so it’s possible this isn’t just a celebration of our revived love for the prequels.
It’ll be interesting to see how Obi-Wan Kenobi’s show incorporates the return of characters like Qui-Gon Jinn and Anakin Skywalker into the overall story.
