Obi-Wan Kenobi Finale Cameo Was Out of 'Respect for George Lucas Plus,' according to Star Wars Vet,  ...

The Obi-Wan Kenobi season finale is available on Disney+.

From early on in the first episode, Obi-Wan Kenobis title character was seen trying to co-exist with Qui-Gon Jinn, the Jedi Master under whom he trained as in the first prequel trilogy movie, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. But to no avail.

Obi-Wan had never clashed with Darth Vader, aka his onetime padawan Anakin Skywalker, until then, pending a bit of bittersweet close following their second lightsaber duel in the Disney+ series.

After leaving a severely injured Darth behind on a barren moon, collecting his stuff on Tatooine and then bidding the Larses farewell but not before officially meeting him, a young Luke Obi-Wan flew his eopie across the dunes. He did not stop until a familiar face stood in his path, basked in the glow of a Force ghost.

Do you know Master Qui-Gon?

Well, took you look enough, scoffed the late Jedi Master, played again by Liam Neeson.

I began to believe you''ll never meet you.

I''m always here, Obi-Wan. You were just not ready to see. Qui-Gon then outfed Obi-Wan to follow him, saying, "Let''s get it right."

Neeson created the role of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace, and acted as the character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and as part of an audio sequence in Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker. However, a year ago, he dismissed the notion of reprising the role in former co-star Ewan McGregor''s Disney+ series (No, I haven''t been approached, he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live), so he was in the finale

Neeson said about his future to our sister site THR. I certainly didn''t want anyone else to play Qui-Gon Jinn, and I wanted to express my respect for [Star Wars creator] George [Lucas and the mythical world that he created.

Plus, Ewan is a strong man, according to the Irishman, and i was thrilled to work with him during The Phantom Menace 25 years ago.

Were you pleased to see Neeson do right by George Lucas and his old friend Ewan McGregor? However, we hope to see him play Qui-Gon any further, if Obi-Wan gets a Season 2?
