John Boyega appears to have confirmed that Tom Hardy will appear in the upcoming Star Wars film The Last Jedi.
Although it will only be an uncredited cameo, it'll provide Star Wars super fans something to look out for on their third and fourth trips to the cinema.
The latest instalment of the sci-fi franchise will arrive in UK cinemas on December 14 and a day later in the US.

Big talks are reported to have been happening around Star Wars recently, with a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi film reportedly on the card.
Sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that there is ambition for a project although no script or cast have been attached to it.
The only thing that is strongly believed to be close to the film is Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry supposedly being on board.

Hardy wouldn't be the first celebrity to appear in the franchise, Daniel Craig played a Stormtrooper in The Force Awaken and Gary Barlow also made an appearance.
Although he won't be doing much in Star Wars, Hardy will play a major part as the title character in Venom - a Spider-Man spin-off.
Hardy will play Eddie Brock, or Venom, a freelance photographer who becomes infected by an alien life-form and turns into a half-human, half-alien villain. Spider-Man will be his main target.
We've known that Hardy will be part of the Marvel Universe since May, although very little has been revealed.
Venom is set to be directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and written by Scott Rosenberg (Kangaroo Jack) and Jeff Pinker (The Amazing SpiderMan 2).
The film, although not part of the 'official' Spider-Man series may play as a nice interlude whilst we wait for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming which hit cinemas in 2017.
A follow-up is expected for 2019, although no clear details have been given for that yet.
