Star Wars fans have all heard about how a Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker script was posted for sale on eBay. No one knew the culprit until now.
On Good Morning America, John Boyega admitted that he accidentally leaked the script. Well, kind of. It was less an accident and more like it got stolen.
“Let me tell you how this went down. It was actually from my apartment, I was moving apartments, and I left my script under my bed. I’m leaving in the morning and [figured that] when I leave I’ll take it [with me]. But then my boys came over, and we started partying a little bit, and then the script just stayed there. And then a few weeks after, this cleaner comes in, finds the script, and puts it on eBay for like [$84].”
So, honestly, Boyega should have probably left it somewhere safer than under his bed. The cleaner also should not have snatched it.
Boyega then recalled how got calls from like everyone about the eBay script.
“It was scary, man. I got calls every — even Mickey Mouse called me, ‘What did you do?!‘ But it all worked out in the end.”
The story has been out there awhile, but no one knew the actor responsible for it. Kudos to Boyega for owning up to it. Although, we think it’s like fifty-fifty split between him and the cleaner. Maybe like forty-sixty.
Though, bro, your secret scripts may be more watched than Tom Holland’s in the future from now on.
