Like in a bad movie: "Star Wars" actor forgets script in hotel room

The actor involved seems to have left it under the bed

Although its immediate predecessors received rather mixed reviews, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is one of the most awaited films of the year. Of course, many fans want to know how the Skywalker saga comes to an end almost 42 years after the first film, but nobody would have thought that instead of going to the cinema they could simply bid for the entire script on Ebay. Already on Monday director J J Abrams confirmed that the script is actually real. Allegedly an actor forgot his script under a hotel bed, after which a cleaner found it and passed it on. Shortly thereafter it is said to have occurred on Ebay. Disney was lucky because first of all nobody believed in the authenticity of the script and second of all it was actually bought by a Disney employee, who bought it before it could get into other people's hands. A few days later it was revealed who was responsible for the giant faux pas, "Finn" actor John Boyega. He then explained how this could happen, namely he wanted to hide it under the bed and take it with him the following day when he moved out. However, his fellows came by to celebrate, and so he forgot the valuable script that was put on Ebay for just 65 pounds. The trouble behind the scenes must have been pretty intense, but in the end everything went well. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20, 2019.
