Star Wars Celebration 2017 revealed a lot about upcoming instalment ‘The Last Jedi’ but also treated fans to some classic tidbits, too. The huge event that took place last weekend was not only a globally covered celebration, but it gave us our first glimpse at a ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ teaser trailer, as well as a touching tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. One part of Star Wars Celebration 2017 was the airing of some ultra rare archival footage from the 1970s – specifically outtakes from the first film that very few people – let alone ‘Star Wars’ fans had ever seen.
Ben Mendelsohn has praised the work of ILM and ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ director Gareth Edwards for making his scenes with Moff Tarkin – a digital creation – as easy as possible on set. The iconic ‘Star Wars’ character, played by Peter Cushing in the 1977 original, was resurrected for the spin-off film with help on set from ‘Holby City’ actor Guy Henry who stood in for, and performed as, the Hammer star opposite Mendelsohn’s Orson Krennic.

By now you’ve probably read about ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s original ending, but it’s been revealed that wasn’t the only potential scene that didn’t make the final film. Ahead of the home release of Gareth Edwards’ massive sci-fi hit, Gary Whitta, who wrote an early version of the script, has revealed that series icon Darth Vader nearly appeared in a third scene.
For some the appearance of the CGI Carrie Fisher at the end of ‘Rogue One’ just didn’t sit right. Like the digital iteration of Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin in the movie, both characters pushed the ‘uncanny valley’ button, where a CGI character is realistic, but not quite realistic enough (or is it *too* realistic?). Speaking to Fandango, director Gareth Edwards said that Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy told him how Fisher presumed it was some footage of Princess Leia found somewhere from the original movies.
