There’s more than one new character in The Last Jedi, but director and screenwriter Rian Johnson described Rose as “the biggest new part.” He also described her as “an unlikely hero” who represents “the notion that anyone out there, any of us, can step up and turn into a hero. She’s not a soldier, she’s not looking to be a hero, and she gets pulled into an adventure with Finn.”
