Liam Neeson will reprise his Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace role as Qui-Gon Jinn on Cartoon Network’s “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” on January 28 and again on February 11, reports EW. He’ll be voicing Qui-Gon, who appears to Obi-Wan Kenobi in visions, in a three-part arc about his former protégé Anakin Skywalker’s destiny as the Chosen One.
Neeson told the magazine he wanted to return to because he felt that “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.”
