I finally saw Rogue One last week and I came away thinking two things:
1) The last third of the movie (pretty much any scene that takes place on Scarif) is one of best and longest action sequences from any Star Wars movie, ever.
2) How the heck is the actor who plays Grand Moff Tarkin still alive?
I was immediately mocked by my friends for not realizing he was a CGI creation (not to mention for having a less than basic grasp on the human life expectancy). Either way, kudos to the special effects team for pulling it off. Check out this video from ABC News to see how it was done.
Bringing back the late Peter Cushing and 19-year-old Carrie Fisher for a story taking place before the 1977 “Star Wars” was a CGI challenge.
