The Living Force

One powerful force power is the ability to sense the future. Darth Sidious seems to be the most accurate with this ability, but Yoda is also able to use it. Qui-Gon encourages Obi-Wan to concentrate on the moment (the Living Force) rather than contemplating the future (the Unifying Force). In the Star Wars storyline, there is an everpresent conflict between present and future (the Republic Senate has been bogged down in procedure, so that they are incapable of reacting once they realize that they are being manipulated into raising Palpatine to the position of Chancellor). Darth Sidious is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ...

Supreme Chancellor (usually just Chancellor) is the title of the Head of State and Government in the Galactic Republic of the fictional Star Wars universe. ...


Furthermore Qui-Gon's emphasis on the Living Force apparently also enables him to preserve his identity when he becomes one with the Force, an ability that the Jedi once had, but apparently lost.


Glimpse of Defiance

Qui-Gon's character illustrates that within the Jedi order there is defiance, impatience and rebellion. This will help lead the audience to Anakin's betrayal of the light in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is the third episode of the Star Wars film series (but the sixth film to be produced), to be released on Thursday, May 19, 2005. ...


After Skywalker uses his talents to win a pod race, and thus his freedom and the parts necessary to continue to Coruscant, after political maneuverings there the party returns to Naboo to battle the Trade Federation and the mysterious Darth Maul. Qui-Gon is fatally injured in a duel with Darth Maul, and as he dies he makes Obi-Wan promise to train Anakin in the ways of the Jedi. Podracing is a fictional concept in the Star Wars universe. ... Coruscant is the name of a fictional planet in the Star Wars Universe. ... - Darth Maul Darth Maul is a character from the fictional Star Wars universe. ...


Influence

Qui-Gon battles Darth Maul.

Although by the time of the Clone Wars he has been dead for over a decade, Qui-Gon is not forgotten, particularly by those who were close to him. In particular, Count Dooku uses Obi-Wan's memories of Qui-Gon in an attempt to gain the young Jedi's assistance to "destroy the Sith". Qui-Gon's spirit - now one with the Force - tries unsuccessfully to communicate with Anakin when the latter goes on an anger-fueled rampage intent on killing the Tusken Raiders responsible for his mother's death. Later at the end of Revenge of the Sith, both Yoda and Obi-Wan apprentice themselves during their exile to Qui-Gon's spirit in order to learn the secret of preserving their identities after becoming one with the Force.

Venerable Qui-Gon brandished his lightsaber with consummate grace (apparent in his Form IV mastery: see seven forms of lightsaber combat), often having sparred with Master Windu.

In the Episode III screenplay, his voice attends to Master Yoda saying that there is a way to retain one's identity after death using the force. This is apparently achieved through extreme compassion, a rejection of selfishness and personal attachment to the point that the physical self fades away, but the conscioussness remains as one with the Force. Yoda declares himself Qui-Gon's apprentice. However, reviews from early screenings suggest that this scene was deleted from the movie. Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ...

Trivia

Qui-Gon appears only in The Phantom Menace though his voice is heard in Attack of the Clones. (His voice can be heard while Yoda is meditating). George Lucas planned to have Qui-Gon appear as a Force ghost, similar to how Obi-Wan appeared in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, however Neeson broke his leg prior to filming the planned scenes and the idea was shelved.
