As Mark Hamill puts it, #TheEmpireShakesItsBooty
After bursting onto the scene and finishing third on Britain’s Got Talent, dancing storm troopers group Boogie Storm has now rocketed even further into the Star Wars galaxy.
The group performed at the recent wrap party for Star Wars: Episode VIII, according to a video shared online by Luke Skywalker himself (a.k.a. Mark Hamill).
“These guys (& girls) were AMAZING!” he raved, adding the hashtags #EPVIIIWrapParty, #TheEmpireShakesItsBooty, and #SexyStormtroopers.
Hamill and costar Daisy Ridley both announced earlier this week that Episode VIII had wrapped, sharing the news with fans on their respective Instagram pages. Ridley posted a photo of her character, Rey, and wrote, “And that is a wrap on Star Wars Episode VIII. My heart is brimming. #reyout.”
Hamill, meanwhile, posted a snapshot from the wrap party. “Saying goodbye is hard when you’ve had the time of your life,” he said. “I can’t thank the cast and crew enough, I couldn’t have done it without you.”
