Discuss Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I knew when Tarkin appeared that he had to be a digital recreation - a really good one - because I knew the actor Peter Cushing was dead. I've heard that plenty of people weren't aware of that and thought he was the real deal.

I've heard of the uncanny valley, but I think RO got Tarkin as close to realistic-looking as I've ever seen.

SPOILERS Princess Leia at the end looked a little more noticeably digital, but I saw this film the day of her death, so it was a poignant moment for me anyway.

I think Tarkin was not perfect and was overused, just to show off the technology.

Leia was great, demonstrated the advantages of the "less is more" approach - but when she uttered that one word, the spell broke, revealing the imperfection in animation. They should've shomehow worked around it, and not have her speak while her face is visible.

I couldn't agree more. I feel like they used Tarkin too much. Leia's cameo was perfect!

Tarkin wasn't totally perfect, but it was pretty damn close. Leia was off but I didn't arrive at that conclusion until my second viewing. Initially, I was too caught up in the emotion of the scene as I saw it after Carrie Fisher's death.

I saw it with people who weren't huge Star Wars fans and they didn't realize it was a digital creation instead of an actor. Not that he was perfect, but unless you were really looking for flaws, they were hard to see.
