    Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico had several scenes cut from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and fans have been left wondering where they went. Co-writer Chris Terrio explain that a major reason for Rose's decreased screentime had to do with technical limitations for what they could do with Carrie Fisher's General Leia.





    While talking to Awards Daily (in an interview that we've partially covered here), Terrio was asked about how Rose Tico got the short end of the stick as far as screentime goes in The Rise of Skywalker. Terrio revealed that a good chunk of Rose's scenes were excised because they were specifically tied to a subplot that was cut from the film involving Leia which ultimately didn't live up to Lucasfilm's VFX standards when a rough cut was assembled:

    Terrio further explained the situation to The Hollywood Reporter, noting that it ultimately boiled down to editing decisions, and he also explained that while we don't get to see a lot of Rose, her increased prominence within the Resistance is a sign of growth for a character who started out as a mechanic who never thought that she had the potential to be a hero:

    Prior to the release of The Rise of Skywalker, Tran alluded to scenes where she would interact with Daisy Ridley's Rey, which didn't happen in the finished film (although such a scene was filmed, as evidenced by the promotional image). Fans have interpreted the downsized role that Rose does have in the film as caving to an absolutely hideous subset of toxic 'fans' who have harassed the actress playing her, but it seems that this was never the intention. Nonetheless, it's not a good look, and more could have - and should have - been done.



    It's likely that Lucasfilm has taken note of fan anger and will include deleted scenes involving Rose when the movie hits Blu-Ray. The film's novelization is likely to touch upon that aspect of the story as well, since there aren't the kind of limitations that existed with the archive footage repurposed into the film. This is a case where I feel like, in an era of needless outrage, there's a point to be made here with a good degree of righteous indignation: Rose's potential was squandered in The Rise of Skywalker, and after what Kelly Marie Tran went through, that shouldn't have happened. Perhaps there's potential to make up for it on Disney+, where the sequel trilogy's characters will no doubt be the stars of future adventures in the Star Wars universe.





    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is now playing in theaters.

    I hope the same goes with the deleted scene with Ren and Hux in the woods.

    In the beginning of the movie on Mustafar. Originally Kylo was slaughtering warriors who protected Vader's castle, after he was finished Hux and Pryde would have appeared on the battlefield. They would have probably said something snappy.
