John Boyega has publicly admitted to being the owner of the Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker script previously listed on eBay.

Appearing on Good Morning America, the English actor confirmed that he was responsible for the major mishap. “Alright guys, it was me. Let me tell you how this all went down,” he confessed on the talkshow. “It was actually from my apartment. I was moving apartments and I left the script under my bed. I was just like, ‘You know what, I’m gonna leave it under my bed, when I wake up in the morning, I’ll take it and then move.’ But then my boys came over and, you know, we started partying a little bit and the script just stayed there. And then a few weeks after, this cleaner comes in, finds the script, and then puts it on eBay for like, £65, so the person didn’t know the true value.”

Although he jokes that his recklessness was simply an opportunity for fans to read the film before it hits theaters, Boyega also touched on the “scary” consequences. “I got calls from every official. Even Mickey Mouse called me like, ‘What did you do?!’”

Boyega’s confession comes after J.J. Abrams revealed the news on the show earlier in the week. While the director and co-writer didn’t namedrop Boyega, he did explain that a Disney employee actually found the script on eBay and purchased it before it could be sold to anyone else.

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker premieres December 20.

In case you missed it, Disney+’s The Mandalorian is now the most-streamed TV show in the United States.
