    What do you think? Should they try and work him into the story or should they just leave him be?

    We know force ghosts will be around, and no doubt we'll see Yoda's, but it would be nice to see Qui Gon again, as I feel he could and should have played a bigger part in the PT. Neeson's a good actor that put in an awesome performance, but having him actually appear on screen in only 1 of an eventual 9 movies is a massive shame.

    So do we want Master Qui Gon back...?! :)

    I don't think so, Yoda as a force ghost is very likely IMO.

    Liam Neeson is still alive, the character is dead, Force Ghosts exist, so why the hell not.

    As mentioned in another thread, the all-but-deleted scenes & references involving Qui-Gon in ROTS are what little remains of anything that could possibly connect both PT & OT to this new trilogy.

    I wouldn't have thought there is any chance of a ghostly appearance by Qui-Gon in Episode VIII. He wouldn't be directly connected to any surviving characters from the OT era and if he was going to show from a story line perspective he would have shown up between A New Hope and Jedi... not however long down the line the new movie may be.

    Bringing back Ewan's Obi-Wan via hologram and Hayden as a Force Ghost would give me goosebumps. Qui-Gon would be cool, but I think Anakin speaking to an aged Luke would be amazing. Plus, it would give a lot more weight to Hayden's ROTJ addition.

    I would rather have mace windu's ghost than Qui-gon.

    Ewan's last tweet is awesome. Shows he doesn't think it's such a bad idea and I would in no way complain if they wanted to make him up to look as much like OLD Obi Wan as possible and play Obi Wan's ghost. It would be very appropriate!
