It’s also reported that director J. J. Abrams will also make a brief appearance prior to the premiere.

Last month (November 29), Star Wars actor John Boyega admitted that he was the unnamed actor behind the blunder that led the script for new film The Rise Of Skywalker to leak online.

Director J.J. Abrams revealed that the script for the upcoming Star Wars film leaked after a cast member left a copy of it “under their bed.”

“I received a call from my agent, saying, ‘Mate, I’ve just received a call from Disney and all the big Gods of the movie industry that you work for, that your livelihood comes from, saying that you lost the most powerful script in Hollywood right now,” Boyega explained to Jimmy Fallon.

J. J. Abrams had earlier explained on Good Morning America that the script for the upcoming film was posted on E-bay after it was discovered by a cleaner at one of the actor’s houses.

He went on to explain that a Disney employee spotted the script online and “got it back before it sold.”

Abrams said: “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 told Good Morning America.  He added: “And it was given to someone else, who then went to sell it on eBay.”

The director also explained that the film, which is due to arrive in cinemas on December 19, was only completed in late November.
