The best thing to come out of the Star Wars prequels (specifically Phantom Menace), Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn, reprises his role as the Jedi Master in Cartoon Network's animated series - Star Wars: Clone Wars.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Neeson will be voice acting in the January 28th and February 11th episodes of Star Wars: Clone Wars.

Qui-Gon Jinn appears to Obi-Wan Kenobi in a series of visions in a three parter that deals with Anakin Skywalker as the "Chosen One."

Liam Neeson had this to say on reprising his role:

 “these characters resonate…even after all these years.” He adds, “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.” And he still is."

Here is a clip:

Star Wars: The Clone Wars airs Fridays at 8:30pm Eastern on the Cartoon Network.
