Thanks to Reddit, we have our first look at Princess Leia before CGI was used to create her likeness. With more films using CGI to recreate characters, it’s interesting to see the craft behind it. After all, someone must still inhibit the role before they’re recreated using computer generated imagery. Such was the case with both Princess Leia and Gran Moff Tarkin in Rogue One, as other actors played their roles.
Rogue One hits home media on April 4th and with that, we’re expecting a plethora of behind-the-scenes footage to show us the making of the film. One featurette highlights the process behind creating Leia and you can check out the images by clicking the links below.
In the film, Princess Leia was played by Norwegian actress Ingvild Deila, who previously had a small role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Archival audio of Carrie Fisher was used to recreate the final words of the film, “Hope.” Gran Moff Tarkin’s role was portrayed and voiced by Guy Henry, who previously starred in Harry Potter and the Death Hallows – Part 1 and 2.
Directed by Gareth Edwards, the film stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen, Donnie Yen, and Riz Ahmed.
Rogue One hits home media on April 4th and is currently on Digital HD.
