Star Wars just got two new faces: Princes William and Harry. The royal brothers visited the set of The Last Jedi, which was shot primarily in England, back in April, playing with lightsabers and sparking rumors that have turned out to be true. Now, John Boyega, who plays Storm Trooper turned rebel Finn in the new trilogy, has confirmed that they also appear on-screen…under helmets, of course.

Per MTV UK News, Boyega revealed that he shares a scene with the brothers, who were “wrapped in Stormtrooper costumes.” The actor described the experience as a “strange contrast of a weird family.” Appearing alongside them as Storm Troopers will reportedly be actor Tom Hardy and Gary Barlow, a singer-songwriter famous across the pond.

This is hardly the first time the Star Wars franchise has found a way to sneak famous faces into scenes. The Force Awakens featured James Bond actor Daniel Craig as a Storm Trooper and Carrie Fisher’s real-life daughter, Scream Queens actress Billie Lourd, as a member of the resistance who shared a scene with her mom. Oscar Isaac’s dad was also an extra.

As for the prequel trilogy, eagle-eyed viewers might spot a pre-fame Keira Knightley as one of Padme’s handmaids in The Phantom Menace, pre-fame Rose Byrne as Padme’s handmaid Dormé in Attack of the Clones, and George Lucas himself (in blue face paint) attending the galactic opera in Revenge of the Sith. (And those are just some; for a full list, click here.)

The Last Jedi premieres December 15. Until then, enjoy this picture preview of what’s to come:
