Liam Neeson has confirmed that he would not reprise his role of Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn in a Star Wars spinoff.
Neeson, 70, who made a cameo appearance as his character Qui-Gon Jinn in Obi-Wan Kenobi last summer, appeared on Watch What Happens Live Thursday episode.
The Taken actor revealed that he doesn't want his own spin-off series because the Star Wars franchise is damaging its own magic.
Neeson famously played Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn in 1999’s prequel trilogy opener, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
The Schindler's List star was asked by a fan whether he’s interested in reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi’s mentor. “No, I’m not,” Neeson responded.
“There’s so many spin-offs of Star Wars. It’s diluting it to me, and it’s taken away the mystery and the magic in a weird way,” he explained.
Neeson further stated, “It was nice to do the little bit with Ewan [McGregor].”
The Ice Road actor is currently promoting Marlowe, in which he plays the titular detective character alongside a cast of Diane Kruger, Jessica Lange and Alan Cumming.
