Boyega, confirmed this during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, saying that he shared a scene with the pair "wrapped in stormtrooper costumes".
Boyega, who plays reformed stormtrooper Finn, also appeared to confirm that actor Tom Hardy makes an appearance in the film but he is also wearing a helmet.
Prince William and Harry were on the film set in 2016 as part of an official visit to Pinewood Studios. One photo from the visit shows Prince William getting a hug from Chewbacca.
According to Boyega it was “great experience” to shoot the scene with the princes and that it made for a “strange contrast of a weird family,” BBC reported.
Twitter exploded with people’s reaction to the news.
