From beyond the grave… Grand Moff Tarkin

The Mail on Sunday has reported that Peter Cushing is to appear in the Star Wars prequel Rogue One – 21 years after his death.

The story claims that Cushing, as Grand Moff Tarkin, will be digitally recreated for pivotal scenes in the new film. What’s more, the CGI wizards are frantically combing through Cushing performances in other movies to locate sequences in which he walks. Famously Cushing complained his boots were too tight in Star Wars. Thus there are very few shots of him standing or moving in full costume.

On the Elstree Studios set of Star Wars in 1976. Peter Cushing is pictured far left in his slippers.
