If you're a Star Wars fan and you have a connection to a filmmaker who's making an installment, you can bet you'll try to cash in on a personal favor for the opportunity to get into the movie. According to The Last Jedi star John Boyega, you can expect to catch a glimpse of Tom Hardy, Prince William, and Prince Harry in the new film.
Variety reports that while Boyega was appearing on BBC Radio 4's "Today" program, the actor revealed of the cameos, "I think they took that scene out. I've had enough with those Prince William secrets, man. They came on set; they were there, man. Tom Hardy was there, too – I said it. I'm sick of hiding this… Every time I get asked I don't know how to dodge it. Yeah, they were on set."
The source of the rumors comes from photos of the members of the Royal Family visiting the Star Wars set which immediately resulted in cameo rumors.
In 2015's The Force Awakens, Daniel Craig and Simon Pegg were some of the notable cameos, even though their faces never appeared on screen. Craig played a First Order Stormtrooper and Pegg played the junk dealer bargaining with Rey, so it's no surprise that theories have begun to emerge over who might cameo in the new film in an incognito capacity.
Hardy is rumored to be following in Craig's footsteps, playing a Stormtrooper who briefly interacts with Finn.
We'll find out for certain if these cameos are real when The Last Jedi opens on December 15.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the second film in the new Star Wars sequel trilogy that began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. The film will deal with Luke training Rey to become a, and possibly the last, Jedi.
