HeyUGuys recently sat down with Liam Neeson, who is promoting his new film A Walk Among the Tombstones. Asked whether he would have any involvement in Star Wars Episode VII, Neeson said he had not been contacted, but that he would love to play Qui-Gon Jinn again if given the opportunity. Neeson previously portrayed the character in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and provided his voice for Qui-Gon's spirit in three episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
It makes sense that Neeson would not be involved in Episode VII, given that his character did not have any connection to Luke Skywalker or the main heroes of the original trilogy. Of course, we could always see him again if there were spinoff films centering on Yoda or Obi-Wan Kenobi. As we know, Qui-Gon was instrumental in Yoda and Obi-Wan becoming Force spirits.
