It's no secret the Star Wars franchise loves to slip in a fun cameo here and there, but could the next sequel be hiding some truly royal surprises? It sure sounds like it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reports of Princes William and Harry visiting the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi earlier left out the real news -- the princes were trading their crowns for stormtrooper buckets. At least, according to John Boyega, who, as we're learning, is more than happy to offer his thoughts on what is or might be happening to Finn.

Reportedly Boyega let the info slip during a THR actors' roundtable as he joked about sharing a scene with not only William and Harry, but actor Tom Hardy and Take That singer Gary Barlow, in which the four are suited up as troopers who are guarding Finn. Now, guarding could mean they're protecting him just as easily as keeping him from escaping, and we have seen him in Imperial gear, so there are still a lot of questions to be answered here.

For his part, Boyega seems to have taken it all pretty much in stride, saying "It was a great experience" when discussing sharing a scene with the monarchs of his home country. Of course, it's Star Wars and there are so many stories to tell, so you have to figure everyone's just happy to be there.

We've reached out to the princes' public relations division for comment, and will update if the cameos are confirmed.

If not, we'll hopefully know for sure when Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in theaters on Dec. 15.
