Rogue One – How the Grand Moff Tarkin was resurrected

2017-01-06 // star wars tech videos

Star Wars: Rogue One succeeded in resurrecting the Commander of the Death Star, the Grand Moff Tarkin, played by Peter Cushing in the original trilogy. This actor died in 1994 was able to return to his role, with the same look as his character from 1977! A technological prowess created by the teams of the studio ILM, who reconstituted the actor Peter Cushing in 3D, in order to make him play new scenes. It is thanks to a mold of the face of Peter Cushing, discovered in the archives of Lucasfilm, that the actor could be recreated. The face in 3D and its facial expressions were then applied to the actor Guy Henry. If the result is not yet perfect, the performance is impressive!
