The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley and Episode VIII director Rian Johnson guided the royals around the massive studio.

Prince William, who is the president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), said that the visit was to celebrate "the wealth of British creative talent" behind the movies.

The royals visited production workshops and met with members of the "Star Wars" creative teams, enjoying close looks at how the series' alien creatures are brought to life.
