So, why do they think that Liam Neeson is lying about his one condition on playing Qui-Gon Jinn again?
This news comes after the Northern Irish actor revealed that he’d love to play Qui-Gon again, but he would only do it in a movie.
Neeson revealed that he is interested in a possible live-action Star Wars return whilst speaking to ComicBook.com.
However, he made it clear that he’s not interested in returning in a series.
Oh, I think so. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I think so.; If it was a film. Yes, I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to TV, but I just like the big screen, you know.
Will Liam Neeson play Qui-Gon Jinn in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series?
Fans have since taken to Reddit to call ‘bullshit’ on Neeson’s claims.
One person wrote: “He obviously isn’t a snob when it comes to TV because he’s done TV before, including TCW and the upcoming Tales of the Jedi. So what we’re reading between the lines here is that he’s come up with that as his non-committal lie to ward off questions about his return under an NDA.”
Another person added: “He came back for clone wars I think he would do some voice work for Kenobi.”
A third person said: “An actor as good as him could never be a convincing liar now could he?”
