Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan, Together Again

Ewan McGregor and Liam Neeson managed to bump into each other at the Los Cabos film festival in Mexico this weekend:

And here are some pix of the former master and padawan:

    This is awesome! hear the people cheer! See, people love these characters. Screw what all those butt hurt fan boys say…they are a minority. Also great to see them share that swash buckling memory again…they seem quite fond of their experience

  2. Hoggle Says:

    Qui-Gon Jin came off great in TPM, & was it’s Star Warsey centre, everyone knows that. The Mos Espa chapters were Iconic Star Wars feel.

  3. Shaman McLamie Says:

    It’d be great to see these two in a Star Wars movie again. If they ever do an Obi-wan anthology film maybe have Liam Neeson train Obi-wan as a force ghost.

  4. Zaalbar Vao Says:

    Seeing them together again is really great. If they ever make that an Obi-Wan spin-off…

    As a side note, I saw this very cool post on a ‘The Matrix’ connection on reddit this morning (don’t worry, the link goes to imgur):

    Had to share it – my mind is blown once again by Attack of the Clones!

    Totally blows the hateboy theory that “the actors were ashamed” right out of the water.

    Wow, what a great moment. I got chills.

    I wonder if they discussed being in future SW films. I’d love to see them as Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon again… and Liam wouldn’t necessarily have to be a Force ghost either. Disney could make a film about Obi-Wan training at the Temple when Qui-Gon’s still alive – how Obi became his padawan learner maybe. That would make an awesome movie. (Y)

    • Shaman McLamie Says:

      The only tough part is making them look younger. With Liam no problem, but with Ewan? I’m not so sure. They might have a cast a much younger probably 10-13 year old actor to be Obi-wan for Padawan years.

      • susanbowes Says:

        It’s true that Ewan is too old to look like a youngling. However, you’d be surprised what make-up artists can do to make an actor look younger, or even older. Disney wouldn’t have to go back that far. They could still make a movie with Ewan as Qui-Gon’s apprentice before AOTC. One that doesn’t include the Clone Wars either. There’s been too many stories written about that already.

      • Stefan Kraft Says:

        You mean before TPM, Susan? I would also be interested in a movie about Ben’s exile on Tatooine (you know, like the EU novel “Kenobi”). And nothing against Han (a spin-off with him, why not?), but a Shmi Skywalker movie could be quite interesting.

      • susanbowes Says:

        Yes, before TPM. I’d also like to see a book about Obi’s adventures on Tatooine. The one already written was really good and I’d like to see another novel written continuing the plot. Han, not so much cause we’ll probably see what happened to him in TFA, or at least get a general idea of what happens with him. A story about how Shmi got pregnant with Anakin would be great too.

    • Hoggle Says:

      That’s what i thought i’d rather see as well for a Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan standalone adventure also 🙂

      Another prequel thing to me is that Portman & Christensen seemed to have good on-screen chemistry, their acting together works well for their characters – it may help that i watch with sound settings that emphasize dialogue & ambient more i don’t know.

      Partly may just be that what’s going on with their characters’ story is harder for people to understand within context of the movies style – dense character & plot exposition & then quick pacing action sequences. Both their acting is both ‘way’ under-rated in the prequels.

      in RoTS Portman bridges & props up the emotional overall tragedy of the story in a way that makes it count as much as possible when the scenes/flow are good enough to do so through out.

      • susanbowes Says:

        I agree with you wholeheartedly that Christensen and Portman had very good chemistry together (on screen and off) in both AOTC and Revenge. Both are great actors in their own right. I would love to see them act together again – hopefully as Anakin and Padme, but the movie wouldn’t necessarily have to be a SW film in order for me to enjoy it.

      • susanbowes Says:

        I also write about Anakin’s love for Padme in my fanfiction, more-so than other books describing their love affair. I explain the reason why he’s so devoted to her. (I hope to get some feedback from you about this subject too.)

      • Hoggle Says:

        Sounds good 🙂

        Will read your writings and send through mine tonite. Here’s my draft of the opening scroll for my first fan fic. sequel episode:

        Star Wars VII: Windmill of the Whills.

        Disintegrations are destroying the Galactic Guild peace.
        Massive armadas of universally shunned ex-empire troopers appear out of nowhere striking against independent planetary systems.

        The equally powerful and feared Leia Organa, Empress of the ruling Equality Guild in the galactic alliance of peace and justice, has sent out agents as Guild planets are being lost to a spreading chaos.

        Luke Skywalker, leader of the Jedi Knights, while on a mission searching for council with the mysterious Jedi Rangers about the crisis, has found himself in
        the Moendo caves following the leads of an old friend…

      • susanbowes Says:

        Awesome beginning. Very interesting! Received your email and will continue reading as time allows. Can’t wait to read you story. 🙂

  7. Dave Strohmenger Says:

    Hearing the reaction from the crowd makes me wonder if the anti-prequel sentiment is more of an American thing.

    • susanbowes Says:

      Most haters probably are American. We’re a pompous bunch, not willing to listen to anyone’s opinions but our own in most cases.

    • roxam91 Says:

      I am noticing more and more that prequel hatred is something more prevalent in English-speaking countries (especially the U.S.) then it is elsewhere, having lived in a non–English speaking country myself for years.

  8. Captain Fordo Says:

    This is interesting and funny as it proves the haters wrong.
    Anyways Lazy Padawan, what do you think of the recent avclub website article titled “The Star Wars prequels don’t deserve your hatred” (http://www.avclub.com/article/star-wars-prequels-dont-deserve-your-hatred-226732)?
    Haters there are as always.

    • susanbowes Says:

      Very interesting article, but it won’t change the haters minds about the prequels. I’ve given up trying. When someone says something bad about the prequels, I just tell them enough is enough – that they’ve been whining about the prequels for over ten years and it’s about time to let go of their hate. Even that doesn’t do any good, but at least I’m trying. Worse comes to worse, I just quit the SW fan page because I’m so very tired of listening to their constant complaining.

    • Shaman McLamie Says:

      Great article. He states it perfectly.
      “At their core, they’re big, crowd-pleasing space operas with a vast, inventive playground of planets, aliens, and spaceships.”

    This little news snippet has made me up no end!!!! BRILLIANT!!!!!

    Wonderful reunion. Look how much Liam, in particular, is beaming.

    Master and padawan meet again as Star Wars returns to the big screen. The circle is now complete. 🙂

    Awww, love them both! So nice to see them together.
