'Star Wars' doubling down on royalty in 'The Last Jedi'

'Star Wars' doubling down on royalty in 'The Last Jedi'

Now the Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has managed to one-up JJ Abrams by scoring cameos from British Royals. All four of them will be playing Stormtroopers.

Daniel Craig had a cameo as a stormtrooper in 2015's The Force Awakens, and featured in a scene with Daisy Ridley's Rey.

The Last Jedi star John Boyega spilled the beans that not only did Prince William and Prince Harry film scenes when they visited Pinewood Studios in April 2016, but Tom Hardy also was milling around the set at the same time.

THR's sources hinted that Will, Harry, Hardy, and Barlow all appear in the same scene opposite Boyega's Finn in an elevator, but we'll have to wait until Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released on December 15th to see for ourselves. They were long rumored to appear ever since they were seen visiting Pinewood Studios back in April past year.

As heirs to the British throne, Prince William and Prince Harry were basically born with impressive resumes. The royals will be joined by Tom Hardy and singer Gary Barlow for a joint, but clandestine, celebrity cameo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Boyega is said to have confirmed it; saying that sharing a scene with two Royals "wrapped in Stormtroopers costumes" was a "strange contrast of a weird family".

Prince William and Prince Harry, seen here on the "Star Wars" set a year ago, will make cameos in the movie.

"It's the best of both worlds for me", he added, saying that it was more fun than intimidating working alongside the future King of England and his brother.
