Rumors have surfaced that suggest Peter Cushing's likeness is to be digitally recreated for Star Wars: Rogue One.

Peter Cushing, the acclaimed British actor who died in 1994, was cemented into Star Wars fandom when he portrayed Grand Moff Tarkin in the original 1977 Star Wars movie. 

Tarkin was the commander of the first Death Star whose stern gaze and authoritative barks even seemed to have control over even Darth Vader. As if this didn't make him fearsome enough, he destroyed Alderaan along with it's billions of inhabitants just to prove a point.

According to British tabloid, the Daily Mail, Cushing is set to make a comeback to Star Wars more than twenty years after his death in order to reprise his role as the Imperial governor thanks to digital visual effects.
