One of the coolest things about Obi-Wan Kenobi was seeing Owen Lars being a protective father figure to the young Luke Skywalker. And although Joel Edgerton is eager to revisit the character soon, he also had an important condition for returning in a possible second season.

Joel Edgerton recently spoke to Screen Rant where he admitted that he was thrilled to be brought back as Owen Lars in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

"I didn't have to push that hard [for the fight], I think there was already a feeling that they wanted to see me mess with a little bit of violence in that series, but yeah, I was definitely keen to push it myself," Edgerton said.

He also confessed he enjoyed filming for the Star Wars series and is open to reprising the role as long as it's a "bright idea" that would expand on Owen's story.

"I don't know, I believe that should only turn up if there's a good valid reason for it, I wouldn't want to invite myself to a party where I don't really belong," Edgerton said.

"I feel like, in many ways, that story has maybe come full circle, or completed itself in the way that it needed to," he added. "But I'm sure there's someone that, if they had a bright idea, I would definitely put the hessian on again."

Edgerton continued, "I always joke that it's the Tatooine fabric of choice is, it's like a potato sack, like brown, coarse kind of material."

"I'd love to see someone make a Vogue cover for Vogue Tatooine," he continued with a laugh.

We'd certainly love to see more of Owen Lars in the future. However, Disney and Lucasfilm seem uninterested in renewing Obi-Wan Kenobi for a second season. On the other hand, there is still the possibility that Owen will be brought back for a different Star Wars project.

All six episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are still streaming on Disney+.
