Liam Neeson is an Irish actor who played Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. His voice was later briefly heard in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and Neeson lent his voice to multiple episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars as the spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn.

Involvement in upcoming projectsEdit
Star Wars: The Clone WarsEdit
On March 7, 2014, the sixth and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, known as "The Lost Missions," will be released onto Netflix. One of the final arcs of the show centers around Yoda learning the deepest mysteries of the Force, ones that can change the galactic balance of power forever. Those mysteries will presumably be about the secret to becoming a Force ghost. Qui-Gon Jinn, again voiced by Liam Neeson, will return as a disembodied spirit and communicate with Yoda. Neeson previously voiced the ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn in two episodes of the show's third season.
Star Wars Episode VII (rumor)Edit
On January 12, 2014, it was rumored by Cosmic Book News that a holographic image of Qui-Gon Jinn—as well as Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Mace Windu—would appear in a new Jedi Temple in Star Wars Episode VII.
