Star Wars Episode VIII Gets A Royal Visit
Prince William and Prince Harry being British royalty decided on Tuesday to visit a galaxy far, far away, but only had to go as far as Pinewood Studios in London.
Prince William and Prince Harry battled with lightsabers, hugged a Wookie and who wouldn’t want to do that, all while they visited the set of “Star Wars Episode VIII”. Both royals were given a tour of the Pinewood Studios set by British actress Daisy Ridley, who plays “Rey”. The brothers also met Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker himself, had a mock lightsaber duel and got to see BB-8 and met the cast.
Kensington Palace said Tuesday’s visit was to salute the British creative talent working on the “Star Wars” movies, which have used British studios, actors, craftspeople and technicians since the 1970s.
Star Wars Episode VIII is due to hit theaters in December of 2017.
