Forget being a kid in a candy store, we'd much rather be princes playing on the "Star Wars" set.

Prince William and Prince Harry spent the day reliving their childhood at Buckinghamshire's Pinewood Studio with the cast of Star Wars on Tuesday.

Hit films "Harry Potter," "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Skyfall" have all been filmed at Pinewood U.K.

Aside from giving the royal brothers an opportunity to play with lightsabers, their visit was coordinated to recognize the British talent involved in the legendary "Star Wars" films.


While on set, the brothers also made instant friends with their favourite characters.
