The young star of the film, Julian Dennison, said that Taika barely slept while shooting the movie.

"This is the script Taika had in his hands (most likely all night long) and it could be yours!" the listing read.

It was sold as part of a charity auction to raise money for Foster Hope NZ, with other gems from the film also up for grabs.

Ricky Baker's "skuxx as hoodie" sold for $310, and Uncle Hec's "classic Swannie" sold for $1000.

Foster Hope NZ chairperson Louise Allnutt says they were the chosen charity because of the foster link in the film.

"It was a perfect fit and we are really pleased with the response," she said.

The money will go to "purchase essential items to go inside our backpacks which are given to children going into foster care around the country", says Foster Hope NZ.
