Darth Vader's cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been on the books for some time, but is there a surprise cameo from another classic Star Wars villain in the film? A new teaser - set to the rythmic pulse of Vader's heavy breathing and the imperial march - shows a brief glimpse of a figure from behind who bears a strong resemblance to Grand Moff Tarkin, the Imperial Admiral who gave the order to blow up Alderaan in A New Hope.

Peter Cushing, the actor who played Tarkin, passed away in 1994, but Tarkin did cameo in Revenge of the Sith, played by Wayne Pygram. If this is indeed Tarkin, Cushing could appear through digital manipulation, or he may be recast.

Here's the full trailer:

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due out in theaters December 16.
