The anthology will return to the shift of Count Dooku, master of Qui-Gon Jinn, to the dark side.

We expect at any time to see him appear in the series Obi-Wan Kenobi from Disney+. After bringing Ewan McGregor back to the galaxy far, far away, we say to ourselves that Liam Neeson is not far away.

Moreover, officially, we now know that Master Qui-Gon Jinn will return to Star Wars soon for the series Tales of the Jedi ! Liam Neeson was announced this weekend, during the high mass Star Wars held by Disney. The actor of Taken will resume his role as The Phantom Menace, but since it will be an animated series, he will only provide voice. Note that Neeson had already taken over the character, vocally, for two episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (in 2011 and 2014) and also during a brief voice cameo in the film The Rise of Skywalker (in 2019).

The only difference here is that Qui-Gon Jinn will be the hero of an episode of Tales of the Jedi. Indeed, this upcoming Disney+ series is an animated anthology that will tell six separate short stories, set in the Prelogy era. Qui-Gon will therefore be at the center of an episode and the son of Liam Neeson was hired on the way to voice a young version of Qui-Gon, who should show up for the first time as a padawan, a student of Count Dooku, not yet gone to the dark side.

Dooku, played by the late Christopher Lee, will be dubbed by a new actor. He will be very present in this series and his switch to the Sith will be a crucial element.

Just like Ashoka Tano. The anthology will return to the origins of the one who will become Anakin’s future padawan. We will discover her childhood, and how she was discovered by the Jedi master Plo Koon.

Tales of the Jedi will air this fall on Disney+.
