The new book ‘Skywalker: A Family at War’ might hint at Obi Wan, Qui-Gon Jinn having a scene together in the upcoming Disney+ series

The new “Star Wars” book “Skywalker: A Family at War” has some details about Obi-Wan Kenobi that might hint at what’s to play out in the upcoming “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Disney+ series.

What ‘A Family at War’ says

According to ComicBook.com, Kristin Baver’s new book “Skywalker: A Family at War” describes how Obi-Wan Kenobi learns to communicate with his former master Qui-Gon Jinn, who has passed on into the netherworld of the Force.

  • “Before he and Yoda had parted ways, the old Jedi revealed that Obi-Wan’s beloved master Qui-Gon Jinn had returned from the netherwold of the Force, manifesting his conscious mind even after death. It took 10 years, but eventually Obi-Wan was able to commune with his dearest friend, resurrected within the cosmic Force,” the book explains, according to a Reddit leak.

This could mean something for the upcoming “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Disney+ series because it takes place 10 years after “Revenge of the Sith,” which suggests the two events could sync up.

Would Liam Neeson return?

Liam Neeson, who played Qui-Gon Jinn, recently told Collider he hasn’t heard much about the show.

  • “I’ll be honest with you: I haven’t heard that at all,” he said.
  • But, he added, “Sure, I’d be up for that, yeah.”

When does ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ debut?

It’s unclear. The release date for Disney+ has not been confirmed, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.
