This time last year saw the release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens which starred John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Daniel Craig in a cameo appearance as a stormtrooper.

Rogue One - the first of three prequels - has just been released boasting an equally as impressive cast ranging from Felicity Jones as protagonist Jyn Erso alongside Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed and Ben Mendelsohn.

The film also features a surprise cameo, only this one is certainly not Bond actor Craig. No, Rogue One contains a cameo appearance from (wait for it) Jordan Stephens from Rizzle Kicks.

Ahmed gave the detail away in an interview with Yahoo Movies and, while Stephens' role has remained under wraps, it's known that he starred as a Rebel fighter.

This isn't the singer's first time in front of the camera having recently starred in E4 drama Glue.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in cinemas now showing a very different ending to what was glimpsed in the trailers. Among the film's biggest talking points is the way in which director Gareth Edwards opted to use unseen footage from original Star Wars film A New Hope.
