Liam Neeson says he's proud of 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace'

Liam Neeson says he is thrilled to have been part of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

The actress spoke of his function from the frequently reviled 1999 movie from the prequel trilogy, broadly thought of as a collapse among Star Wars fans.

“I enjoy the movie,” Neeson started in a meeting with Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM radio series. “I am proud of this and thrilled to have been part of it. I must become a Jedi. I must play those amazing lightsabers and things. It had been brilliant, Andy, it actually was.”

Assessing the response to this character played with his own co-star Ahmed Best, the Gungan warrior Jar Jar Binks, Neeson shared his own disappointment.

“He turned into a great deal of criticism, so I suggest to the point at which it actually hurt his profession,” the actor said.

“And now I must mention once I was creating that movie… that he was most likely among the funniest men and talented men I’ve ever worked together. I remember calling my previous agent, and that I said’Listen, I believe I have only worked with all the newest Eddie Murphy’.

He continued:”And I believe that… he’d us laughing. Adding George Lucas.”

In other Star Wars news, Ewan McGregor has stated that the forthcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi show in development at Disney+ can be a standalone period. The untitled project is set to begin production next Spring.
