Qui-gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) Will Return to ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi,’ According to a Source. But How?

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s journey has been long and winding, much like the SKYWALKER SAGA. As a result of the success of The Mandalorian, the project was rewritten into a television series. It was then reworked again because of poor scripts. Three years in the making, Obi-Wan Kenobi is finally nearing its debut, and with it, a long history of speculation and leaks.

As the show’s release date approaches in May, the rumors and leaks surrounding it are becoming more ambitious. So far we haven’t heard anything more exciting. Detailed instructions are included.

Spoilers ahead!

Obi-Wan Kenobi may be watching over his future apprentice in his Disney+ spinoff, but it’s possible that his former mentor is also watching over him. According to two reputed leakers, Bespin Bulletin and Making Star Wars, Qui-Gon Jinn will appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

As you can imagine, this is a huge deal for Obi-Wan. Prequel Trilogy Obi-future Wan’s was already set to be revealed, with Darth Vader (Hayden Christenson) and rumors of Princess Leia’s early years confirmed. We haven’t seen much of Obi-past Wan’s in the prequels or The Clone Wars, but there’s a chance we’ll see something from his past if Qui-Gon makes an appearance.

Obi-Wan Kenobi And Qui-Gon Jinn

However, this rumor raises the question of how Qui-Gon will appear. Both Force ghosts and flashbacks are viable explanations besides a literal resurrection à la Palpatine.

When it comes to Force ghosting, Qui-Gon has seen it all before (he basically invented it). His ghost appears to Anakin and Obi-Wan in The Clone Wars. To help Obi-Wan gain mastery over his mindset, Qui-Gon, a follower of the Living Force, used meditation techniques frequently.

Could a Force ghost appear to remind Obi-Wan of the importance of being in the present? It would be a nice cameo, and it would help Obi-Wan deal with his grief over Anakin’s conversion to the Dark Side.

The other possibility is a flashback, which was previously difficult to imagine because Liam Neeson hasn’t worn Jedi robes in over two decades. Even though The Mandalorian pioneered the use of de-aging technology by portraying Luke Skywalker as an 80s Mark Hamill, it’s possible that a younger Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon could appear in a pre-prequel adventure that ties into the character’s later plight in Return of the Jedi.

It’s possible that this cameo will surpass Hayden Christensen reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker. After all, Qui-Gon was the prequel trilogy’s first major loss, and seeing him again in live-action could be incredibly nostalgic for fans of all ages.
