Here's Why Kelly Marie Tran's 'Rise of Skywalker' Role Was Reduced

Kelly Marie Tran‘s screentime in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a mere 76 seconds out of the movie’s 2 hours and 35 minutes- and now a writer is speaking out about why.

Chris Terrio, who co-wrote the film, opened up about the character of Rose Tico’s reduced role in the film.

“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 Fisher’s footage in the way we wanted to,” Chris shared with Awards Daily.

“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.”

He went on to explain the situation: “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.”

Director Jon M. Chu Wants to Make a Rose Tico Series for Disney+ Starring Kelly Marie Tran

There has been a lot of discussion about Kelly Marie Tran‘s Star Wars character Rose Tico lately as fans believe she wasn’t treated well in The Rise of Skywalker.

Rose, who is a member of the resistance, barely had any screen time in the new movie. She was the first woman of color to have a significant role in the franchise and Kelly received so much online bullying that she eventually quit social media.

Now, director Jon M. Chu has publicly revealed that he wants to make a Rose Tico series for Disney+, the new streaming service from Disney.

“Ok @disneyplus . Put me in coach. Let’s make this series happen. #RoseTicoDeservedBetter @starwars,” he tweeted.

Kelly Marie Tran's Screen Time in 'Rise of Skywalker' Was Timed & It's Quite Shocking

Kelly Marie Tran reprises her role as Rose Tico in the new movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and there has been some criticism with the storyline her character was given in this film.

Now, the amount of screen time that Kelly was given has been revealed.

A reporter at Slate timed Kelly‘s screen time while watching the film and discovered that she is only on screen for 76 seconds out of the movie’s 2 hours and 35 minutes.

In The Last Jedi, Kelly was introduced to the Star Wars universe and she was on screen for 10 minutes and 53 seconds. That film was just three minutes shorter than The Rise of Skywalker.

People have criticized Kelly‘s lack of screen time in The Rise of Skywalker, especially after she was the subject of racist tweets, which led her to leave social media.
