Rise of Skywalker writer explains Rose Tico’s limited screen time

During the final installment of the Skywalker saga, Kelly Marie Tran’s screen time as Resistance fighter Rose Tico was noticeably reduced compared to her presence in The Last Jedi. Co-writer Chris Terrio recently spoke with Awards Daily and explained that the filmmakers were not intentionally trying to sideline the character, but that her cut scenes had more to do with anchoring her to their “favorite person in this galaxy,” the late Carrie Fisher’s General Leia.

“J.J. [Abrams] and I adore Kelly Marie Tran,” said Terrio. “One of the reasons that Rose has a few less scenes than we would like her to have has to do with the difficulty of using Carrie’s footage in the way we wanted to. We wanted Rose to be the anchor at the rebel base who was with Leia. We thought we couldn’t leave Leia at the base without any of the principals who we love, so Leia and Rose were working together. As the process evolved, a few scenes we’d written with Rose and Leia turned out to not meet the standard of photorealism that we’d hoped for. Those scenes, unfortunately, fell out of the film. The last thing we were doing was deliberately trying to sideline Rose. We adore the character, and we adore Kelly – so much so that we anchored her with our favorite person in this galaxy, General Leia.”

In addition to directing, J.J. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio (ArgoJustice League). Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, and Abrams will produce, with Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin executive producing. Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with Rise of Skywalker.
