Prince William and Prince Harry’s Star Wars cameo has probably been cut 😭

Just the worst

Star Wars fans are eagerly anticipating the new instalment of the franchise, The Last Jedi, which launches in December this year.

While it has been speculated that Princess Leia will be digitally recreated, following actress Carrie Fisher’s death, it’s thought that Carrie Fisher will not appear in the ninth instalment.

Rumours have also been a-circling about those who will make surprise appearances alongside the main cast.

Ever since the release of photographs showing Prince William and Prince Harry on the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, everyone’s been debating whether they’ll make a cameo appearance in the new movie.

John Boyega, who plays Finn in the franchise, seemed to confirm the rumours during an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

The Princes reportedly had non-speaking parts as Stormtroopers, but unfortunately it seems their acting efforts didn’t actually make it to the final film.

‘I think they took that scene out,’ Boyega said. ‘I’ve had enough with those Prince William secrets man, because I swear—there was images or whatever online. They came on set, they were there, man. Tom Hardy was there too, man, I’ve said it!’

He added: ‘Someone leaked it or something, and then there was an image of some sort, and I was like “Damn!” Every time I get asked I don’t know how to dodge it. Yeah, they were on set.’

It looks like Harry and Wills’ scene didn’t make the final cut, so we’ve got all our hopes pinned on a Tom Hardy appearance.

Boyega is currently promoting his upcoming film, Detroit, which hits UK cinemas on August 25th.
