After numerous stumbling blocks with Star Wars, Disney seems to have found the best way to exploit the franchise with the spin-offs it is preparing for its streaming platform, Disney Plus, and an element that could be fundamental to the success of these projects is the return of the characters that captivated fans, such as Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson), who will return to Star Wars as a new report has revealed.

The Jedi master appeared for the first and only time in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace - 55% as a teacher of Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), but after his death at the hands of Darth Maul we never heard from him until Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith - 79%, where Yoda reveals to Obi-Wan that his former teacher managed to contact him from beyond.

Now We Got This Covered, whose sources reported the return of Ewan McGregor in a Star Wars series, before it was officially announced, ensures that Liam Neeson returned to the franchise as Qui-Gon, although it is unknown if it was a movie or a TV series, but we are inclined to think that it is the second, because it is in the type of projects that Lucasfilm is putting its efforts. It is also said that it may appear in a flashback, so the source of We Got This Covered believes that we will see it in the Obi-Wan series of Disney Plus.

We know that Neeson would be delighted to return to Star Wars in the role of the Jedi master, as he was questioned by Yahoo Movies UK about it during the promotion of The Passenger - 58%, when an Obi-Wan feature film was still planned and not a series, and this is what I answer:

This is the first time I hear this. No one has contacted me. I know that everything is possible in the world of Star Wars. In The Phantom Menace I died but we know that the Jedi returned and all that, but nobody has contacted me. We'll see. Not only is there an opportunity for him to appear in flashbacks in the series, as at the end of Revenge of the Sith Yoda he told Obi-Wan that he would teach him to contact his former teacher, we may see him talk to him through The Force. At the moment there is no more information, but we can almost assume that Neeson will return and Lucasfilm wants to keep it a secret, as he did with McGregor and Ian McDiarmid, whom we will see again in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as the emperor Palpatine

In addition to Qui-Gon, another character that could appear in the Obi-Wan series, according to rumors, is Darth Maul, whom we saw briefly in the second spin-off of the franchise, and not only would it make a lot of sense but it would be full of Emotion to the fans.

? The return of these favorite characters from fans is a desperate Disney strategy to recover the fans who lost in recent years? It may be, but the truth is that it really is a good strategy because what most fans asked in all these years (and in Lucasfilm seemed to ignore blatantly) were stories like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - 85% and other spin -offs that were secondary but very dear characters like Boba Fett, who had very little time in the saga but became one of the favorites.

With Rogue One a massive success was achieved but the second spin-off that was intended to win over the fans was a failure, the first box office failure in the entire history of Star Wars, we refer to Han Solo: A Star Wars Story - 56 %, who had a problematic production where their original directors were fired and veteran filmmaker Ron Howard finished the project to the races.
