Daisy Ridley shows off her Jedi moves; Episode VIII may feature royal cameos

Star Wars: Episode VIII Prince Harry Prince William lightsabers

Spoilers for THE FORCE AWAKENS ahead for the five of you who haven't seen it yet. Daisy Ridley definitely got to show off some moves during STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, but the young actress has been pumping up her training regimen to the next degree for Rian Johnson's STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII. J.J. Abrams' film closed with Rey (Daisy Ridley) finally coming face-to-face with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) who gave her the stare down while she held out his old lightsaber. It's too soon to say just what will happen after that, but it seems likely that Rey will be receiving some form of Jedi training. Daisy Ridley frequently shares small glimpses of her STAR WARS workouts on Instagram, and earlier today she gave us all a peek at some lightsaber exercises in progress.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS featured a few celebrity cameos, the most notable being Daniel Craig as the stormtrooper who Rey performs the Jedi mind-trick on, and it looks as though STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII will be following suit. It's no secret that Prince Harry and Prince William recently paid a visit to the set of EPISODE VIII (luuucky), but the Daily Mail reports that they were also invited to appear in the film as stormtroopers. Apparently the royal brothers "dressed up in full Stormtrooper gear and filmed a scene in which Rey and Finn infiltrate a secret base. The rebel characters are in a lift with Benicia del Toro’s character when a group of Stormtroopers enter – two of whom are William and Harry." By the time EPISODE IX rolls around, the entire First Order is going to be populated by celebrity cameos.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII is set to hit theaters on December 15, 2017.
