Liam Neeson has ruled out an appearance in the upcoming one Obi wan kenobi Disney + series.
“They don’t have enough money,” Neeson joked during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! He appeared to praise his new movie, The ice road, when Kimmel asked about the Star Wars series and the possibility of seeing him in it.
“I heard Ewan McGregor was going to do a series, ”Neeson said. “No I don’t think so. No, I haven’t been approached.
Neeson starred as Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Master of McGregor’s Obi-Wan, in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. His character died at the hands of Darth Maul. However, several past Star Wars projects have shown ghostly images of alleged missing characters, leaving the door open for a possible Neeson revival.
Kimmel noted that Neeson is such a good actor that he “could easily lie”.
Obi wan kenobi is now in production. Hayden Christensen returns as Darth Vader, with Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Pieese as Luke’s adoptive parents.
Watch for Neeson’s Star Wars commentary that begins at 6:40 a.m. in the video above.
