Liam Neeson Says He Would Bring Back Qui-Gon for Obi Wan Series

Liam Neeson Says He’d Be Up to Bring Back Qui-Gon for Obi Wan Series Liam Neeson doesn’t say much, but when he does he speaks volumes, especially when talking about anything Star Wars related. In this case, the man gave a rather brief affirmative when asked if he would be willing to return as Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series. “Sure, I’d be up for that, yeah,” Neeson told Collider.

Let’s Say a Proper Goodbye to Bib Fortuna, Lackey to Jabba the Hutt and Unlikely Offscreen Crime Lord

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide , where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Things move fast these days, and the season finale of The Mandalorian already feels like old news, despite only arriving a few weeks ago. Nevertheless, not everything that happened has been talked to death yet. Luke Skywalker? Yes. The Book of Boba Fett speculation? Yes. The death of Bib Fortuna? Not as much. Time to fix that! Which Character is This Aga...

‘The Marksman’ Review: The Latest Liam Neeson Action Movie Aims for the Heart

It’s not a good time for much, but weirdly enough, it is a very good time to be a Liam Neeson fan. While DC-heads just had to watch its latest offering on their televisions and Marvel-stans don’t really know when they’re likely to see Black Widow, Liam Neeson has starred in not one, but two theatrical offerings during the pandemic: first the generic and boring Honest Thief and now the much better but still pretty generic The Marksman . Congrats to you, if your favorite films invol...

Amazon asks judge to set aside Microsoft’s $10B DoD JEDI cloud contract win

It’s been more than two years since the Pentagon announced its $10 billion, decade long JEDI cloud contract, which was supposed to provide a pathway to technological modernization for U.S. armed forces. While Microsoft was awarded the contract in October 2019, Amazon went to court to protest that decision, and it has been in legal limbo ever since. Yesterday marked another twist in this government procurement saga when Amazon released its latest legal volley, asking a judge to set aside the d...
