‘’Star Wars: The Last Jedi’’: Deleted Scene Features Prince Harry and Prince William as Storm Troopers

Rumors predated the release of ‘’Star Wars: The Last Jedi’’ that it featured Prince Harry and Prince William in a short cameo.


In a stunning revelation, it has now been revealed that Princes William and Harry starred opposite Tom Hardy in a scene which was deleted from the final print of ‘’Stars Wars: The Last Jedi’’.

As those who watched the movie would tell, it featured a scene during which Finn and Rose undertook a daring mission to the First Order’s base. Both of them had to disguise themselves to turn off the tracking device to save their friends.

And if rumors are true, it was in this scene that Their Royal Highnesses featured in the movie. After putting on the iconic Stormtrooper uniform, both the Princes were set up for a tense encounter with the rebel hero Finn.

In this scene, Finn wants to return to his old stomping ground, as he was also a Stormtrooper back in the day. The Stormtrooper who recognizes his former colleague was no other than Tom Hardy, who adopted a Southern accent.

As for both Their Royal Highnesses, the script of the movie didn’t include any lines for them. Consequently, their role was to just stand behind Tom Hardy in the deleted scene.

Early on, it was reported by the media that the directors of ‘’Star Wars: The Last Jedi’’ had to cut the scene due to the height of Prince William.

Mail on Sunday reported that the movie only took those actors as Storm Troopers whose height was exactly 5’11’’. However, since Prince William is over 6ft, his inclusion in the scene might have blown his cover.

Having said that, the stance that it was Prince William’s height which excluded his cameo from the movie appears to be a shaky one.

For, while in earlier episodes all the Stormtroopers had identical height, the recent trilogy features conscripts of different heights as well.

Finally, now that we have confirmation that both the Princes made an appearance in the movie, it seems that any celebrity worth his salt could get a role in a Star Wars Movie.

For, in addition to starring the Princes, ‘’The Last Jedi’’ also featured cameo appearances from Lily Cole, Justin Theroux, and Gary Barlow.

’Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Collects $1Billion Worldwide

Though it has been just three weeks since its release, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” has stunned everyone by collecting more than $1 billion at the box office.

However, before you drool any further, let me remind you that despite raking in such huge amounts, “The Last Jedi” still isn’t the biggest-film of 2017. According to an estimate, “Beauty and the Beast” and “Fate of the Furious” performed better than the Star Wars movie in the preceding year.

Still, since the film is only three weeks old, it is expected to take over both its predecessors. Thus, it seems only a matter of time before “The Last Jedi” becomes the highest-grossing release of 2017.

One area where “The Last Jedi” has left “Beauty and the Beast” behind is its grossing in the domestic market. While the latter collected $504 million from North America, “The Last Jedi” has earned already in the region of $517 million.

The bullish trend which has seen the movie raking in billions was expected, at least after a blockbuster opening day. The movie collected $104 million on its first day at the box office. Hence earning the honor of 2nd highest opening day in the history of Hollywood.

The numbers which “The Last Jedi” got on its opening day were second only to its predecessor “The Force Awakens” which collected a whopping $119 million on its first day at the Box Office.

Despite raking in such huge numbers, “The Last Jedi” still lags behind its prequel “The Force Awakens” on one count!

That doesn’t mean, however, that “The Last Jedi” received a relatively underwhelming response from the audience. Rather, the difference has more to do with the cinemas which both movies got on their opening days.

While 5000+ Cinemas showed “The Force Awakens” on its opening day, only 4100 cinemas showed “The Last Jedi” on its. Thus, if you compare both of them on this count, the recent episode of the Star Wars Series has done comparatively well than its prequel.

Despite bringing in such numbers, “The Last Jedi” has divided opinion among its audiences and critics. For, while Rotten Tomatoes has given it a 93% score, the movie has got the lowest audience score among any Star Wars movie on the same website.
