John Boyega Lost His 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Script While Partying
Though we're just under a month away from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker landing in theatres, some serious spoilers could have been made public after John Boyega's authentic script ended up in the hands of an enterprising eBay seller.

On Monday (November 25), director J.J. Abrams told Good Morning America that an actor in the film had misplaced the script in a hotel room. "One of our actors, I won't say which one — I want to, but I won't — left it under their bed and it was found by someone who was cleaning their place," Abrams said. "And it was given to someone else, who then went to sell it on eBay."

The director confirmed that Disney "got it back" quickly before a sale to anyone else was made. Today, Boyega confirmed he was the cast member in question, recalling in his own appearance on Good Morning America that the script ended up under his bed after hosting a party with some friends.

"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 in the 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 then a few weeks after, this cleaner comes in, finds this script and puts it on eBay for like 65 pounds." Boyega laughed in suggesting the eBay seller didn't know the "true value" of what they had, recalling, "It was scary, I got calls from every official." He then joked, "Even Mickey Mouse called me, 'What did you do?'"

The Rise of Skywalker arrives in theatres on December 20, but it is already expected to have the worst box office return of the current series.
