Star Wars Episode 9: What to do with Rose

So, where exactly does Star Wars go with Rose Tico after all of the not so great press she received after “The Last Jedi”? I for one, wasn’t and didn’t pay much attention to Rose Tico, I was no fan of The Last Jedi, however, I wasn’t irritated or aggravated in any way about her character. I thought it was just a bit cliche though, and the introduction of a new character was a bit welcome in some aspects, but the hate towards the actual actor was not justified as far as I am concerned.

I never believed that any disagreement towards her character should spill over to her as a person and I was so embarrased of the fans of Star Wars when she as a person received so much vitriol because of her character.

So, where does her character go from here? After all I don’t think JJ Abrams can just ignore her as her story has been set in motion, maybe as with Jar Jar Binks in the Episode 3 she will be there, not die, but yet come and go without much notice, I believe this has worked before with of course Jar Jar Binks, but as one article points out her toy character is lacking from what I have read. So we’ll see…….

If I were director…….I think I would do one of two things. I would have her in a minor role, and perhaps a few minutes here and there would do, or do something drastic such as have her die in a heroic fashion, but I would prefer to have her play a more minor role….

Thoughts?
