Peter Cushing? In our moment of triumph?

We’re 18 days from the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which means we have about 18 more new trailers to go, right? Here’s the latest, entitled “Breath” and you’ll never guess who shows up.

That’s right! Governor Tarkin! We never expected to find him holding Vader’s leash. Peter Cushing, the OG Moff and most major character never to get a Kenner action figure, died in 1994. But Entertainment Weekly confirms that he is brought back, Tupac-like, through the magic of CGI. This was rumored a while back, now it’s officially on.

So, who’s the next one-off from A New Hope to be resuscitated in Rogue One? Some candidates:

Lucasfilm/20th Century Fox

Or maybe:

Lucasfilm/20th Century Fox

How about ...?

Lucasfilm/20th Century Fox

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story premieres Dec. 16.
