The first new Star Wars movie gave us a whole cast of new characters to inhabit the galaxy far, far, away. The sequel will mostly follow those same heroes and villains, though there are three brand new characters in Star Wars: The Last Jedi who will be important to the story. Two are played by well-known actors Laura Dern and Benicio del Toro, while the third comes from relative newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

As with most details surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there's a lot we don't know about these three characters. However, we've collected everything that we do know about these newcomers to the story, and how they will fit into the newest chapter of the Star Wars saga. Here's the rundown on Rose, Amilyn Holdo, and DJ.

Rose Tico

Rose may be the most intriguing new character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, if only because, from the outside, she appears so simple. Rose is a maintenance worker for the Resistance; she's a mechanic. It's the most simple and boring occupation for a Star Wars character since moisture farmer. She also has a sister named Paige who is a pilot, who might seem like the more interesting character. But it's clearly Rose who will factor into the show's narrative. We've seen from the trailers and behind the scenes footage that Rose will be right alongside Finn when he attempts to infiltrate the First Order disguised as an officer. Is Rose more than we're being led to believe, or somebody who gets in way over her head? It's not exactly clear at this point. We do know that Rose is director Rian Johnson's favorite new character, and that probably means a great deal.
