Not much in the shot is recognizable but I see a typical alliance pack there to the right. :)

It's weird because the two dudes on the right make this feel, to me, like a goofy adventure flick instead of a Star Wars movie. I like the OT elements in the rest of the cast, even the PT elements in the background. ;)

Yeah, that's an odd collection of characters in that image.  But like others have said, some great acting cred in there...  I have hope this will be awesome.

Funny to see the cast shot... should put to rest some rumors since none of them are obviously Hera or Ahsoka.  I suppose there is a chance that one of them is Sabine, Kanan or Ezra though.  :-X

I don't think this movie will have anything to do with Rebels. It looks like fun SciFi battlefront type stuff.  Very different but still feels like grown up Star Wars.

It's like Star Wars meets 47 Ronin!

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Is it my imagination or does Felicity Jones look extremely hot in that outfit?

The image is pretty cool.  And there are subtle little details in there that bring you back to the OT.  The stonework is in there subtly, but it looks like that could be the Massassi Temple on Yavin IV.  And then there's a couple of the coats and jackets.  They're very reminiscent of jackets we saw in the OT (Captain Antilles, Biggs cut scene, Luke ceremony), some of which were based on 1970's motorcycle jackets.  The coat that Diego Luna has on is very reminiscent of Han's coat from Hoth...but in BLUE!  And the headgear worn by one of the background characters looks very similar to headgear we saw in TESB.

It's also interesting to see Mads Mikkelson added to the cast.  That guy seems like he was born to play a villain!  And I could totally see him play an Imperial after having seen him in Casino Royale.

He'll always be One Eye from Valhalla Rising to me.  ;)

Wonder if it's going to be like what they did with the young Arnold Terminator in Terminator Genesys?  That was done pretty well.

That is incredibly ambitious.  Tarkin is a crucial part of the story of the first Death Star.  But if he were left out of ROGUE ONE that would be a gaping plot point.  The younger version of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator Salvation and Terminator Genesys were one thing.  In Salvation all he did was fight.  I haven't seen Genesys (couldn't bring myself to buy a ticket).  Digital characters have been with us for a long time.  Like the article said, it was done in Gladiator to a limited degree after Oliver Reed died during production.

Like him or not, Jar Jar was a tremendous step forward in the evolution of digital character.  But still, you had an actor on camera providing a reference for the motion capture team.  And he also provided dialogue for the other actors to play off.  I think it's very likely that there will be an actor on set who performs the role of Tarkin for actor and mo-cap reference.  But this is definitely new territory since the actor whose performance will be presented is dead.  I wonder how much dialogue is actually going to be pulled from Hammer films, and how much is going to come from ANH?

I remember the first time they put a dead actor in a movie was Branden Lee in the Crow. They had a few scenes that were shot after his death were they pasted his face on another actor. This should be pretty incredible if they do it right. Hopefully it won't look like young Jeff Bridges in Tron Legacy. I would love to see a new Cushing/Lee Hammer movie.

PLEASE just be a hologram voiced by the dude who voices Tarkin in Rebels...

I dunno, the CGI Arnold in Terminator Genisys was alright, but you literally see a quick shot of his face followed by a bunch of quick cuts during a fight scene. Tarkin doesn't fight, he just stands there and talks. We could hit the Uncanny Valley really quick.
