The revelation that Daniel Craig had made a cameo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, made people wonder: what other celebrity cameos could we expect to see in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Why, none other than British royalty.

In a roundtable discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, John Boyega confirmed that Princes William and Harry will be making cameos as Stormtroopers. The princes filmed their cameos during their visit to Pinewood Studios in April last year, while production for The Last Jedi was still underway.

Boyega said that filming a scene with the princes was more “fun” than intimidating, and was “a great experience” overall. Further, the 25-year-old confirmed that Tom Hardy will cameo in the same scene as the princes. Along with Take That singer Gary Barlow, the celebrities are said to have put on Stormtrooper costumes and guarded Boyega’s character Finn in a scene.

Never mind all the stars in the galaxy, the amount of raw star power in that one scene would’ve been powerful enough to run a Death Star!

The Last Jedi will be released in Singapore on December 14.
