During the Royal set visit to Star Wars VIII at Pinewood Studios last week, on April 19th 2016, Prince William and Prince Harry secretly filmed a guest ‘appearance’ as Stormtroopers for the movie.
The Daily Mail is saying that a reporter from it’s Mail on Sunday was told “The line given was that they were going to have lunch and a private tour of the rest of the set. What really happened is that the director came over and told them it was time to “get suited” and off they went to the wardrobe department.”
Full Stormtrooper gear
And that “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.”
We understand that the Princes’ spokesman would “neither confirm nor deny” the roles, but added, “The Princes had a great day showcasing the British talent behind Star Wars. And apparently Disney have also declined to comment!
Daniel Craig’s Stormtrooper
In Star Wars VII The Force Awakens (Star Wars 7) Daniel Craig (aka James Bond) also had a Stormtrooper role. Not confirmed initially but has since been listed in the credits as Stormtrooper JB-007.
Star Wars VIII is due for theatrical release in December 2017.
