Neeson said “Oh, I think so, yeah, yeah, yeah, I think so… if it was a film. Yeah, I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to TV, I must admit, I just like the big screen, you know?” He continued, saying “I can’t believe it’s 24 years since we made The Phantom Menace. I just cannot believe where the time has gone. It was a terrific experience, shooting that film in London.”
