We are SO ready for this.

Daniel Craig’s secret star turn in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ appears to have inspired Tom Hardy, who is set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming ‘Star Wars 8’ film, according to reports.

The next installment of the franchise is currently in production, and according to the Making Star Wars blog, the ‘Mad Max’ actor will pop up in it.

According to the site, Tom will play Craig, a First Order stormtrooper and former friend of John Boyega’s character Finn.

The website claims when Finn bumps into Craig, he assumes that he will be killed, but a comedic understanding occurs.

The stormtrooper then lets Finn go, unaware that he has defected to the resistance, believing that he’s infiltrating General Leia's operation.

‘Episode VIII’ isn’t the only upcoming ‘Star Wars’ project, as another movie starring Felicity Jones - titled ‘Rogue One’ - is currently in production.

Lucasfilms and Disney are also planning a prequel that focuses on a young Han Solo, and earlier this week, the identity of the actor who has nabbed the role was revealed.
