Liam Neeson will voice Qui-Gon Jinn in the January 28 episode, Overlords, and the following February 11 episode as well. He appears in Obi-Wan Kenobi's visions in a three-episode arc that deals with Annakin Skywalker's plight leading into Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. Here's what he had to say about coming back to the franchise:
Growing up, my heroes were cowboys; they were strong and mysterious, and it seemed like they always rode off into the sunset. For kids today, Star Wars has that same kind of magic. I really wanted to be a part of that."
