ON THE SLATE there are an array of standalone #STARWARS movies on the way -- beginning with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in December 2016 -- and not long after that, we can expect the extended story of HAN SOLO, with the recent confirmation of Alden Ehrenreich to play the 'new' Han Solo. To quote several Star Wars forums and web features...' Han Solo didn't always fight on the most righteous side of the Galactic Civil War -- at least if this part of the Expanded Universe remains canon. During his younger years he enlisted in the Imperial forces and trained to become a pilot. With that in mind, this seems like a prime opportunity to bring back Grand Moff Tarkin (originally played by the late Peter Cushing in A New Hope) as a central member of The Empire's imposing military.
Tarkin has become a major element on the Star Wars Rebels, and considering the fact that the time-lines more or less seem to line up, it would make perfect sense for him to appear in Han Solo's standalone adventure possibly even accompanied by a wheezing Darth Vader!' (Cinemablend.com)... it seems as though something of Cushing will appear in Rogue One this December, but what do we think about the prospect of Tarkin's character with or without Cushing's appearance in the new Solo film???
