Harrison Ford’s abandoned STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE script sells at auction for $13,000

When Harrison Ford he left his rented house in London after filming the George Lucas film Star Wars: A New Hope, the actor left his script for the film. That abandoned script was dated March 15, 1976 and titled The Adventures of Luke Starkiller.

Well, the owner of the house Ford rented found the script and recently auctioned it off to an Austrian collector for around $13,600 during a livestream auction on Saturday.

This script was the fourth draft of the screenplay that eventually became Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and it was unbound and incomplete. It also included personal notes written by Ford, differently colored pages indicating revisions, and also included scenes and characters cut from the final edit.

Sarah Torode, co-owner of Excalibur Auctions, said during the auction: “It has his DNA on it. She might as well have done it [Ford’s] sweat it out.” I guess Ford’s bodily fluids contributed to the price increase!?

The script’s listing on Excalibur Auctions said Ford rented the top two floors of the seller’s house in the London suburb of Notting Hill in the summer of 1976. The owners lived on the lower floors. They claimed they had never heard of Ford or his co-stars Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, who stopped by occasionally.
