It's a difficult question. Is it fun and clever? Or is it a cheat, and the knowledge of it prevents your being fully into the movie?

I don't see a difficulty. Celebrities have plenty of law available that permits them to treat their images as valuable property, including passing the property rights of their images to their heirs and assigns when they die.


In this case, Cushing's estate provided permission (and was probably paid). Fisher provided permission as well (and was also probably paid). Cushing himself, before he died, had even stated a desire to have been in further Star Wars movies.

It is simply an extension of effects that have been used since the beginning of film. Glass shots, matte shots, pepper's ghost, have been around since the beginning. This is more advanced, but more of the same.
