Last week Prince William and Prince Harry paid a visit to the Pinewood Studios set of Star Wars: Episode VIII, but according to The Daily Mail the two Royals weren’t just there for a photo opportunity, as the paper is reporting that they shot cameos for the hotly-anticipated second instalment of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy.
“The line given was that they were going to have lunch and a private tour of the rest of the set,” claims the paper’s source. “What really happened is that the director [Rian Johnson] came over and told them it was time to ‘get suited’ and off they went to the wardrobe department. The Princes dressed up in full Stormtrooper gear and filmed a scene in which Rey and Finn infiltrate a secret base. The rebel characters are in a lift with Benicia del Toro’s character when a group of Stormtroopers enter – two of whom are William and Harry.”
Star Wars: Episode VIII is set for release on December 15th 2017 and sees returning cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix) and Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke) joined by new additions Benicio Del Toro (Guardians of the Galaxy), Laura Dern (Jurassic Park) and Kelly Marie Tran (Ladies Like Us).
