Liam Neeson criticises Star Wars for having 'so many spin-offs'

Liam Neeson criticises Star Wars for having 'so many spin-offs'

Hollywood star Liam Neeson has criticised Star Wars for having too many spin-offs.

Hollywood star Liam Neeson criticises Star Wars for having so many spin-offs. However, is he not wrong?

Neeson played Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace as well as three episodes of the animated series The Clone Wars, and made a cameo as a voice in The Rise of Skywalker. He even had a couple of lines in the Disney Plus series Obi-Wan Disney and more recently, Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi.

Speaking of The Mandalorian, look at this incredible fan-made game.

However, as reported by Variety, a common question Neeson is often asked is whether he’d reprise his role as the Jedi Master more often. While the answer is usually a simple no, when asked again in a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, alongside Ant-Man star Paul Rudd, Neeson elaborated as to why he’s not always keen to reprise the role of Qui-Gon Jinn.

“No, I’m not,” Neeson said when asked if he’s returning to Star Wars. “There are 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.”

Personally, I feel inclined to agree with Liam Neeson on this one. As a lifelong fan of Star Wars, even for me, I feel the series is a little over-saturated nowadays and I am sure I’m not alone in that thinking. There are so many movies, live-action and animated spin-offs, that one could argue that it has lost a little bit of its magic.

Don’t get me wrong, I still and will always love Star Wars. However, as with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it can feel like we’re getting a little too much of the good stuff. That being said, if Liam Neeson announced that he’s returning as a live-action Qui-Gon Jinn, you still won't hear me complain.
