Obi-Wan Kenobi: How Liam Neeson Might Appear (One Way or Another)

Star Wars and Disney no longer needs an actor in-person to have them in the scene. Heres how Liam Neeson might appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Recently time. Famously fans were amazed at Mark Hamills surprising appearance in The Mandalorian looking like he did in the 70s. And of course Carrie Fisher appeared in The Rise of Skywalker nearly three years after she died. And now just a week ago fans were left to wonder whether James Earl Jones really did voice Darth Vader in the new Obi Wan Kenobi series. Yes his name is in the credits but so is Respeecher a voice cloning software used to recreate actors voices. For the record it still remains unclear whether the software was used to spruce up lines read by the 91 year old actor or if it was used to fabricate his voice from scratch, but one thing remains clear time holds no sway over who Disney will have in their movies.

The new Disney+ series features the now slightly aged Jedi having a crisis of faith. Several scenes show Obi-Wan pleading to speak to his old Jedi master who was defeated by Darth Maul in Episode I. It was implied at the end of Revenge of the Sith that Yoda taught Obi seen before. So one might wonder will Liam Neeson reprise his role as Qui Gon Jinn or will Disney build a Neeson force ghost from 1999?Most people nowadays are familiar with the term deepfake. Its a practice that involves placing someones likeness on top of another persons to create media that appears to star a real person who was never there at all. While it started as a harmful exercise used to make things like revenge media its been used in slightly more innocent ways in recent years. Famously the Tom Cruise deepfake account rose to popularity on TikTok not just because of its hilarious comical approach to impersonating the actor but because of the surprising accuracy with which he was able to fool viewers into thinking that it might actually be Tom Cruise.
