Star Wars / British Monarchy fans everywhere were sent into a frenzy yesterday as pictures emerged of the Duke of Cambridge visiting the set of the eighth movie in the Star Wars saga alongside his brother Prince Harry at Pinewood Studios.
The British Royal Family’s sovereign Princes William and Harry took time to visit the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, where they were treating to meeting with the cast, crew and creative teams behind the eighth installment in the Star Wars saga, directed by Rian Johnson and due out in 2017.
William and Harry visited the set ahead of the Queen’s 90th birthday tomorrow, and got to meet Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn) as well as Chewbacca in costume, Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and BB8. Harry took pointers from Mark Hamill as he sat in the cockpit of an X-wing fighter, and William got a close up look of one of Rey’s prosthetic headpieces.
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).
