Liam Neeson recalls “very sweet” memory when filming Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Liam Neeson shared a sweet interaction his son had while visiting him on the set of Phantom Menace. The actor played Qui-Gon Jinn in the Star Wars prequel movie.

Before his co-star Ewan McGregor reprized his role in the Disney Plus series Obi-Wan Kenobi, Neeson was asked about his time in the film. In a conversation with Screen Rant, he shared memories of filming in London in 1998.

This included particularly lovely moments with his son Michael with R2-D2. He said, “I’ll tell you a funny story. My son Michael was two years old. His nanny took him to the set and it was lunchtime. I held him in my arms and took him around the set and R2-D2 was parked there and sitting there. “

“My son saw this strange piece of metal on my arm and just said:[stretches arms out]’ continued Neeson. “So I had to put him down and he turned around and started hugging R2-D2.”

Neeson revealed that his son had never seen Star Wars at the time, but clearly had a bond with his beloved droid. Actor Taken said the moment was “very sweet,” and when discussed later, director George Lucas said he wasn’t surprised by the interaction.

“After lunch, I said to George Lucas, ‘I brought my son. He had to go down and hug R2-D2 and it was really touching.’ And George said, “Yes. R2-D2 has that effect on children.”

Neeson isn’t expected to return to the Obi-Wan Kenobi series after his character’s heartbreaking death, but a few other aspects of the show have been teased. Check out our guide to all that has been revealed about the Obi-Wan Kenobi so far.

The series will be released on Disney Plus on May 27th, along with the first two episodes. Meanwhile, here’s the latest on all the upcoming Star Wars movies you need to know. If you haven’t already, you can also subscribe to Disney Plus here.
