Kelly Marie Tran will be back in Star Wars: Episode IX

It's official.

Rose will be back. It was pretty much assumed, but it is confirmed that Kelly Marie Tran will indeed be back in the next installment of the Star Wars saga. Lucasfilm officially unveiled the new and returning cast for Episode IX, which will include Tran reprising her role as fearless Resistance tech Rose Tico.

Take that, haters. From the official announcement:

Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.

Wait, Mark Hamill will be back?

The as-yet untitled Episode IX, described as "the final installment of the Skywalker saga," will be directed by J.J. Abrams, who co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio. Filming is set to begin next week in London.
