Besides Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn is also supposed to have become a Force-Ghost (even more, he probably taught becoming one to the other two, according to the end of RotS). So, did Qui-Gon's ghost appear anywhere in TFA?

  • Did I miss the other force ghosts showing up? I don't remember that at all.

    Qui-Gon did not teach Yoda how to become a Force Ghost. Towards the end of the Clone Wars TV series, Qui-Gon's spirit led Yoda to the Force Priestesses, who then taught Yoda. Yoda taught Obi-Wan how to communicate with Qui-Gon (that part is explicitly stated at the end of RotS), who then lead Obi-Wan to the Priestesses. Commented Jan 9, 2016 at 3:51
  • @DCShannon Sorry for the confusion, no, Yoda and Obi-Wan merely were heard in Rey's visions (see also here and here), but no Force-Ghosts at all so far. But these two already had their appearance in RotJ, Qui-Gon would have been a bigger surprise...

No. He's not in it. Not even in a flashback.

As to why he wasn't in the film, you'd have to ask Jar Jar Abrams but my personal guess it that his character simply wasn't a big enough part of the Prequel trilogy to merit inclusion into a film that was heavily focused on being a retro pastiche of the Original trilogy

  • Don't let him see you say that, he's not the biggest fan of the prequels!

  • You mean a static character that served nearly no meaningful plot device other than dying didn't make a flashback? that's good :)

    @enderland I kind of liked Qui-Gon, but that might be because he wasn't Jar Jar :P
