Mon Mothma, Bail Organa and Darth Vader will all be seen on the big screen again thanks to Rogue One, and it got me thinking: who else might we see return for little cameos in this year's Star Wars release? See some options below....
This week's Talk Star Wars Twitter Poll invites you to cast your vote and let us know which one of Vader's faithful/doomed Imperial heavy weights you'd be thrilled to see pop up on the big screen once more. See that below.
Now of course these characters will most likely be walk on cameos, cast with either look alike, CGI or make up modified actors, but wouldn't it be cool if we were to see Vader ordering General Veers to crush the Rebels with his AT-ACT's, or if we see Captain Piett shaking in his boots somewhere behind Vader on a Star Destroyer as the Dark Lord of the Sith threatens Admiral Ozzel after he fails him for the penultimate time.
Aside from the high profile character cameos in Rogue One it does look like we might be seeing some more subtle, sly nods to the original trilogy. If you look at the image below you can see in the back left of frame a character that looks very similar to General Jan Dodonna from Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope. Ive boosted the brightness so you can make him out a bit easier.
So if we are going to be seeing some of the old faces from the saga films in Rogue One A Star Wars Story, who would you like to see again? I'd be happy with any of the Imperial officers I've listed in this weeks poll, but I really want the Tarkin rumours to be true.
Is that Jan Dodonna? Will we see Veers, Ozzel, Piett or Motti again? Leave your thoughts about who we might see in a Rogue Cameo in the comments below.
