Screenwriter Gary Whitta as of late clarified that he and alternate essayists chose to keep down when it came to highlighting more seasoned characters.

“We did have some other characters but the reason why they’re not in the film is because any time we did something like, where I’m wearing the fanboy hat and not the professional writer’s hat, someone would come along and say, let’s not do that character again,” he explained to EW.

Gary said that the film was initially going to incorporate Admiral Ackbar, among different characters, yet J.J. Abrams highlighted him in The Force Awakens first.
