Since Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released there has been this buzz that Tom Hardy, Prince Harry and Prince William made cameos as Storm Troopers. Well, the rumors are true — at least we think — based on the deleted scene above which will be included on the DVD which will be released in April.
The scene has Finn (John Boyega), Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) and DJ (Benicio Del Toro) disguised as officers on the First Order base. They are on a mission to disable the tracking device but while on an elevator full of Storm Troopers, a tense scene ensues.
One of the Storm Troopers recognizes Finn as FN-2187 (his name as a Storm Trooper in The Force Awakens). Things get a little nerve-racking as the Storm Trooper interrogates him. Rose reaches for her gun, but DJ stops him. Right then, the Trooper with the Southern accent lightens up and congratulates him and gives him a slap on the behind. This, ladies and gentleman, is allegedly Tom Hardy. And two of the Troopers behind him are of royal blood: Prince Harry and Prince William.
It’s hard to tell whether or not this is true considering they are wearing masks — but we’ll just have to use the Force and believe that it is true.
