Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens

It’s not exactly a diplomatic mission to Alderaan, but Prince William and Harry are still paying a visit to a galaxy far, far away.

The Duke of Cambridge and his brother stopped by Pinewood Studios in London on Tuesday, where the Star Wars team is hard at work on Episode VIII. Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley gave them an exclusive tour of the studio and showed off some of the galaxy’s coolest props and costumes, from models of Maz Kanata and Nien Nunb to Rey’s wig and desert scavenger costume.

Plus, the two brothers took advantage of Pinewood’s extensive collection of lightsabers to stage a familial battle of their own. (From the look on Harry’s face, it’s a pretty safe bet that he’s making a “fssshhhh” lightsaber noise.)

According to the studio, William and Harry will also receive a private tour of the Episode VIII film set and meet with director Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill.
