Prince William and Prince Harry visited the set of the latest Star Wars film at Pinewood Studios. They were joined on their tour by stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. They also met Mark Hamill and Rian Johnson, director of Episode VIII. The royals chatted to Chewbacca and duelled with lightsabers, with Harry using a red one, suggesting he's gone over to the dark side. Prince William, who has just returned from a trip to India and Bhutan, said he is a "total geek" when it comes to the Star Wars films.

Principal photography has begun for Star Wars Episode VIII, which continues from where The Force Awakens left off. It is due for release on 15 December 2017.
