A Real ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Script Almost Ended Up on eBay

So far, the cast and crew of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” have done a pretty remarkable job keeping details about the movie under lock and key. Through the entire promotional campaign, very little has been revealed about what actually happens in the movie. That no details have leaked is incredibly lucky, especially since an entire script almost got sold on eBay.

The scripts were printed on paper that was supposed to be impossible to copy. That was done so that the actors could take the pages home and rehearse. Unfortunately, one actor was a little too careless with their script, leaving it under their bed. Director J.J. Abrams, who co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio, told the full story on Good Morning America.

“The security is insane. The company was really nervous about anything getting out, and so they had only a handful of scripts and they were printed on crazy un-copy-able paper, and then one of our actors — I’m not gonna 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 explained. Eventually, the script wound up for sale. “The company said, ‘You know there’s a script that looks like it’s a legit script that’s for sale on eBay’,” Abrams said. “They got it back before it sold.”

Imagine a world where the entire script for the movie was available to the public. If the information was out there, anticipation for the movie would likely be very different. You may be curious to see how things happen, but you wouldn’t wonder what was going to happen.

Speculation as to who leaked the script will likely run rampant, but I imagine there was quite a bit of panic following the incident. Abrams is particularly keen on keeping the details of his projects away from the public. He probably wouldn’t have responded well if his entire script had been leaked months ahead of the movie’s release.

Would have read the leaked script for “Rise of Skywalker”, or would you want to go in unspoiled? Let us know in the comments below.
