Tran portrayed Resistance fighter Rose Tico in The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. She also played the role for various animated ventures including LEGO Star Wars: All Stars, The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, and Forces of Destiny. Since then, Tran has gone on to play the lead role of Raya in Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon.
Lourd played Lieutenant Connix in the sequel trilogy and is also the daughter of the late Carrie Fisher, for whom she stood in for during certain scenes in The Rise of Skywalker. While still relatively new to the acting scene, she’s definitely made an impact. She’s been a major fixture in the cult hit American Horror Story since 2017, and garnered praise for her memorable role in 2019’s Booksmart.
We are patiently awaiting further announcements about panels, additional guests, and so much more. Earlier this week, Asmodee announced that they will be hosting a Game Sessions booth with a number of awesome board game options. If you are at the convention and want to meet some of the team here at Star Wars News Net, The Resistance Broadcast will be hosting a Happy Hour and then having a live episode of the podcast. You are able to sign up for that event here.
