Prince William and Prince Harry will be joining the dark side as ‘Stormtroopers’ in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
News of the casting have been around the rumor mill for awhile, and have finally been confirmed by actor John Boyega.
In an interview with Boyega, who plays ‘Stormtrooper Finn’, the publication learns that he shared a scene with the royals in the film—but you might not be able to identify them due to their outfits, of course.
The two princes won’t be the only high-profile characters to cameo in the upcoming film. Boyega also spills that Tom Hardy and Gary Barlow will appear as fellow ‘Stormtroopers’.
Boyega adds that the stint was more “fun” than “intimidating… it was a great experience.”
When the movie hits cinemas on 15 December 2017, keep your eyes peeled for an elevator scene, where the famous four will be shown guarding ‘Finn’.
