William & Harry’s ‘Last Jedi’ Cameos Cut For Being Too Tall
When Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit cinemas, eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot a number of cameos from multiple celebrities. Reports were also released detailing exactly who was given a cameo, including Prince William and Prince Harry.
Although it wasn’t officially confirmed, the two royals never made it into the final cut for one bizarre reason. According to the Daily Mail, the princes were too tall.
With Harry standing at 6’1” and William at 6’2”, they are above the strict 5’11” height restriction on all stormtroopers.
The Daily Mail reported, “Stormtroopers have to be exactly 5ft 11in. At the time we shot it, I think the feeling was that the scene would make the final movie. Everyone feels bad that William and Harry lost out on their big moment. However, the scene just didn’t work for the final cut so it was left out.”
