See How ILM Brought Grand Moff Tarkin Back For ‘Rogue One’

Of course, many people are questioning the ethics of bringing back deceased actors for movie and television roles, but I don’t think you can compare this to something like the wretched Fred Astaire Dirt Devil commercial. I suppose it won’t be long before major actors start dictating how their likeness can be handled after death, because you know that stuff like bringing back young Harrison Ford for an Indiana Jones movie will be tempting fifty years from now.
