Princes William and Harry will appear with Tom Hardy in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Princes William and Harry will have an appearance in the newest Star Wars movie; “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

You won’t be able to notice them as they will be playing Stormtroopers in the film which is due to be released next month on the 15th.

As well as the two Princes, actors Tom Hardy and Gary Barlow, the Take That singer, will also appear in the movie. All four will appear together in the same scene as Stormtroopers.

The unlikely combination will be guarding John Boyega’s character, Finn, while in an elevator.

Boyega said that “It was a great experience” filming the scene. He said that “It makes you feel like you’re part of a history in a sense”

Boyega also said that there were some moments when seeing Barlow, Hardy, and the two Princes “wrapped in Stormtroopers costumes” made for a “strange contrast of a weird family”

This wasn’t the first time the Princes got involved with the Star Wars franchise. In April, the two Princes visited the studio where the movie is filmed. They got to meet Chewbacca, Boyega, Mark Hamill, and other members of the crew.

While visiting they had a chance to act out their Jedi fantasies and play with lightsabers.

Prince Harry was seen receiving X-Wing fighter piloting advice from Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker. William was pictured having a chat with BB8, the robot who is seen as a successor to R2D2.

In April, Boyega said he had “no comment” when asked whether or not William and Harry would have cameos. It is likely that while visiting the set in April the scenes were filmed.

It is unclear how long the two Princes will be on screen or whether or not they have any lines.
