It would appear there isn’t room for Britain’s Royal Family in a galaxy far, far away. Prince William and Prince Harry filmed cameos as Stormtroopers for Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but the two were removed from the final cut.
This was confirmed by star John Boyega, whose Stormtrooper-turned-rebel hero, Finn, was introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In an interview on the ITV talk show This Morning, when asked if the brothers were indeed shot as Stormtroopers, Boyega finally spilled the beans.
“Yeah they were, man. I’m sick of this, I’m sick of it! Yes, they were, OK?” Boyega said. “They cut it out of the film. I did personally apologize to them yesterday and said, ‘Sorry you were cut out of the film.’ Will was like, ‘I guess I just need to work more on the skill.'”
The intended cameo wasn’t a well-kept secret after the royal duo visited the movie’s set in April 2016. The official Kensington Palace Instagram proceeded to post a photo of Harry embracing Chewbacca, sparking rumors that they were indeed going to be featured in Johnson’s movie.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently in theaters and stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke.
