Liam Neeson will voice Qui-Gon Jinn on two episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, in which the character is set to appear.
Qui-Gon Jinn appeared in the prequels to the original movie series and played a pivotal role in shaping the film. He will appear in glowing blue force ghost form.
Neeson told Entertainment Weekly, “these characters resonate…even after all these years…. Growing up, my heroes were cowboys; they were strong and mysterious, and it seemed like they always rode off into the sunset. For kids today, Star Wars has that same kind of magic. I really wanted to be a part of that.”
The actor will appear in two episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars that will air on January 28 and February 11.
