Kelly Marie Trans, the actress who portrayed Rose in Episode VIII and IX, seems to be a bit hesitant to return to the role in future movies if she was offered the chance the come back.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is easily the biggest point of contention for the fanbase. There seems to be a wide range of opinions on the film, with some people thinking it’s the best the series, to some people thinking it’s the worst, to some people just not understanding the drama surrounding the film.

One of the biggest talking points about the film was the character of Rose.

At this point, most people know that Kelly Marie Tran, the actress that portrayed her, was bullied over her role in the movie, to the point where she deleted her social media accounts at one point because of it.

Now, in a new Collider interview, the actress spoken about whether or not she would come back to the role in the near future and it’s not sounding too promising.

Kelly Marie Tran portrayed Rose in The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.

According to her, she’s uncertain about whether or not she would come back after her minimal appearance in The Rise of Skywalker and went on to explain that basically the stars would have to align perfectly in order for it to happen.

“I don’t know. I honestly don’t know. It’s so strange. I had so much fun being in that world but I feel like the pieces would have to fall into a perfect little puzzle and everything would have to feel like it’s the right time and the right moment and the right story, like with any other project. But I don’t know,” Tran said in the interview.

Tran also agreed that there were more stories left to tell for the character, but that doesn’t seem to be enough to bring her back.

Her apparent hesitation is definitely understandable. While it’s possible that she’ll change her mind in the near future, it doesn’t seem like she will be back in the mammoth Disney-owned franchise anytime soon.

A Disney cosplayer went viral on Instagram after enchanting viewers with her jaw-dropping take on beloved princess, Cinderella. 

One of the most iconic animated films of all time, Cinderella is still as influential as it was when it made its debut in 1950. The Disney adaptation brought a magical take on a classic fairytale and is often considered the best version of the story.

Prolific cosplayer ‘Anastasia Lion’ celebrated the beloved movie by bringing its princess protagonist to life with her insanely accurate costume. Her stunning re-creation of the heroine will be sure to leave fans in awe.

The fairy tale centers on Cinderella, who is mistreated by her wicked stepmother. Her fate changes, however, when her fairy godmother transforms her into a princess so that she can attend the Royal Ball.

Cosplayer Anastasia Lion made waves on social media when she shared her true-to-life take on the Disney heroine. The Russian-based artist faithfully re-created the character’s look from the beginning of the movie when she is a servant for her step-family.

Photographer ‘ph_mosienko’ brilliantly captured the moment, with their work bringing the animation’s visual style to life. Anastasia looks so much like the Disney princess, it’s almost as if she’s walked out of the screen.

In another stunning shot by Elizaveta, the cosplayer showed off her depiction of Cinderella’s flowing blue dress which she wears to the Royal Ball. The gorgeous stone pillars and flowing flowers in the background bring the whole piece together, as it truly looks like the princess is fleeing the event before midnight. 

Despite releasing over 70 years ago, Walt Disney’s enchanting take on the classic folk tale has become iconic in pop culture. Viewers around the world still love the film, and it’s popular in the cosplay community.

Those who have managed to never see the 1950 movie can watch its HD remaster on streaming services Disney+ and Amazon Prime. It is also available to purchase on all digital platforms.
