Now for “Star Wars Episode VIII” even bigger celebrities are set to appear, two of which are Prince William and Prince Harry. The two royal men are set to appear in the film as storm troopers.
Last week, photos were taken from Pinewood Studios in London where “Star Wars: Episode VIII” is filming. The young royals were shown around the set and got to try out many of the fun features of the star wars film before suiting up as stormtroopers.
