Star Wars: Kelly Marie Tran Not Ready to Return as Rose Tico

There is little doubt that fans were hoping to see more of Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker but the character only had a brief appearance in the film. So what are the chances that we'll see more of Rose in the future? Kelly Marie Tran has just considered the possibility of returning as the young Resistance fighter.

Tran is currently promoting her new filmRaya and the Last Dragon but she still couldn't avoid Star Wars questions. During an interview with IGN, Tran admitted that she missed Rose but also pointed out that she is unsure if she could continue playing the character.

"I feel like I'm different. I think so many times in our lifetimes, we are constantly growing and learning and, again, the realm of human experience is so limitless, you can be so many different people at one time but, when I think about Rose specifically and who I was then and how I was able to tap into certain parts of myself," Tran said.

"I don't know if I could play her again. I miss parts of her," she concluded.

This is certainly disappointing to hear considering that Rose had a lot of potential in the Star Wars Universe. On the other hand, it's understandable considering that Tran went through so much when she was cast as the character in the franchise.

It's no secret that Tran had to deal with cyberbullying after her character was introduced in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It was so intense that Tran chose to leave social media. Luckily, it looks like she has healed and moved on since then.

Although it's unlikely we'll get to see Rose again, there is little doubt that Tran is destined for greater things in the business. We're hoping she gets more awesome projects like Raya and the Last Dragon in the future.

Raya and the Last Dragon is now screening in selected theaters and is available on Disney+ via Premier Access.
