Prince William and Harry Spotted at 'Star Wars Episode 8' Film Set, Could Cameos Be In the Works?
Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge, William, will appear in the upcoming "Star Wars Episode VIII." The two were recently seen visiting the set of the upcoming installment and they were able to interact with Mark Hamill, Benicio del Toro, Daisy Ridley, Kathleen Kennedy and John Boyega.
Filming the scene
After the two were able to play with lightsabers and even sit in the X-wings, the press was asked to leave so they could film their scenes. Harry and William are rumored to be stormtroopers in the film so their faces will not be seen. It is also likely that there scenes could also be cut but audiences won't know until next year or until the DVD is released the following year.
According to the Daily Mail, the scene was shot alongside Benicio del Toro who is rumored to be playing a villain in the film. However, like "The Force Awakens," Disney has maintained everything about the film a secret.
Cameos in 'Star Wars'
The appearance of the Prince comes after a long line of cameos that appeared in "The Force Awakens." One cameo that was unexpected included Daniel Craig, who is best known for playing James Bond. Composer Michael Giacchino also had a chance to be in the film as a stormtrooper while Simon Pegg played Ukar Plutt.
Bill Hader and Ben Schwartz were also in the film as they voice BB8 and Kevin Smith made a brief appearance. Ewan McGregor and Alec Guinness also had a cameo as Ben Kenobi and Frank Oz also appeared briefly as Yoda's voice.
Other interesting cameos included Oscar Isaac's uncle, Carrie Fisher's daughter and the "Downton Abbey" actress Dame Harriet Walter.
With Episode VIII underway, it will be interesting what other new cameos are going to appear. Disney is reportedly still casting the film and it is rumored that Lando Calrissian will appear in the film. There are also rumors that Harrison Ford could make one last appearance but none of these are confirmed.
The upcoming film is slated to be released on Dec. 15, 2017.
