Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi

WARNING: This post contains mild spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Baby Driver director Edgar Wright is trading red Subarus for starships.

Wright is one of several famous faces to make a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and now, he’s sharing a behind-the-scenes snap of his day on set as a Resistance fighter. The director posted a photo of himself in costume, along with his brother Oscar, Leo Thompson, and Attack the Block director Joe Cornish.

Wright and Cornish aren’t the only directors to snag a role in The Last Jedi. After Gareth Edwards gave The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson a cameo in Rogue One, Johnson repaid the favor by casting Edwards as a Resistance soldier in the trenches on Crait. (He’s next to the guy who licks the planet’s surface and declares that it’s made of salt.)

Other high-profile cameos in The Last Jedi include Prince William and Prince Harry as stormtroopers, Justin Theroux as a high-rolling codebreaker on Canto Bight, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who’s appeared in all of Johnson’s movies) as the Canto Bight alien who rats out Rose and Finn to the police. (Read more about Gordon-Levitt’s role here.) There’s even an alien inspired by Carrie Fisher’s beloved French bulldog, Gary.

The Last Jedi is in theaters now.
