liam neeson star wars

We all know that Qui-Gon Jinn dies at the end of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. A few of us also know the character endured in the franchise, appearing to Yoda, Obi-Wan and Anakin during The Clone Wars. It was he who figured out how to become one in the Force and appear as a ghost. Which he did, several times.

When Qui-Gon returned for The Clone Wars cartoon (which is canon, just like the movies) Liam Neeson too returned to provide the voice. He’s proud of the character and in a new interview, was asked if he would return as the character in a potential standalone movie. He, of course, said “Yes” but also raises the smart question of “Is there actually a way to do it?” Not to mention, he’s got a few issues with the lightsaber of Kylo Ren. Watch the latest Liam Neeson Star Wars video below. Read More »

Tak3n trailer

Liam Neeson, special set of skills, daughter in danger, it’s all pretty familiar now. Time to shake things up just enough to bring audiences back. So for Taken 3, now officially called Tak3n, the Neeson character Bryan Mills is in Richard Kimble mode as he’s framed for the murder of his wife. Now a fugitive, Mills goes on the run to preserve his own freedom and watch over his surviving daughter (Maggie Grace) while trying to elude authorities.

Tak3n first look

Liam Neeson has gone on record saying he “can’t see” making another Taken after Taken 2. But apparently a hefty paycheck has gone a long way toward correcting his vision, because that’s definitely Neeson back in action again in the first images from Taken 3.

To be fair, it seems to be the “taken” part of the movie that Neeson took issue with, and Taken 3 has no taking. There’s so little taking, in fact, that the film is actually called Tak3n. And according to Neeson, it’ll be the one to close out the franchise. Hit the jump for your Tak3n first look and plot info.
