How does the super secret script for the new Star Wars movie end up on eBay? Well, a potential explanation could be that one of the film’s stars could have partied too hard and mindlessly left the script under his bed in his apartment for a housekeeper to find it.
But there’s no way that could happen.
There’s a way.
British star John Boyega, who plays stormtrooper Finn in the newest Star Wars trilogy, admitted during a humbling appearance on “Good Morning America” Wednesday that he was a bit careless with his script while partying with his mates in London. After their night of fun, he left his script for The Rise of Skywalker on the floor of his apartment. A housekeeper discovered it, and it quickly ended up on eBay. Thankfully a Disney employee saw it online and immediately purchased it before anyone else got their hands on it.
An embarrassed Boyega broke it all down for the GMA audience.
“I was moving apartments, and I left the script under my bed,” Boyega said. “I was like, ‘I will leave it under my bed and when I wake up the next morning, I will take it and then move.’ But then my boys came over and we started partying a little bit. The script, it just stayed there. And a few weeks after, this cleaner comes in, finds this script and puts it on eBay for like 65 pounds.”
That's equal to about $80.
After having what sounded like several panic and heart attacks, it seems Boyega has learned his lesson.
Still. A wookie mistake, if you ask me.
