Star Wars Episode I: The Phatnom Menace star Liam Neeson recently sat down with Yahoo! Movies to discuss his latest film Taken 3 and during the interview he was asked whether or not he would like to ever reprise his role as Qui-Gon Jinn if J.J Abramds or any of the future Star Wars spin-off directors were to ask him to do it. Quite simply put, Neeson says he would love to return to the franchise, but isn't sure how it would work. Check out excerpts from the interview below.

When asked if he'd like to return as Qui-Gon in a Star Wars spin-off film, Neeson replied with “Yeah, I’d say so. Yeah, that would be terrific. I certainly loved shooting the prequel [‘Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace’] but that was many years ago now.” As exciting as it would be to see his Jedi given his own spin-off, Liam admits it may be tricky to do so by adding: “I don’t know [how he would return], unless you went back in time or he becomes a hologram or something. He’s a Jedi, anything could happen, it’s Star Wars world!”

When asked about what he thought of the Star Wars Episode VII teaser, he was excited but his only concern was the controversial new lightsaber design that the new Sith uses. To this Neeson added: “I had a couple of worries about that lightsaber. I thought if it comes in [towards the body] and is close to you, it’s like having a jet of [burning] fluid hitting your clothes and your skin, but I’m sure they’ve thought that out.” When asked if Qui-Gon would ever use such a lightsaber, Liam replies by saying no, that Qui-Gon would stick with his green one from the first film - and that he still owns the one he used while filming The Phantom Menace; and that he keeps it polished.

What do you think of a Qui-Gon Jinn Star Wars spin-off? Would you like to see more of that character explored? Let us know in the comments section!
