A California man has plead guilty to distributing a stolen copy of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” two days before it appeared in theaters.

The Justice Department said Tuesday that Marc Hoaglin, 36, pleaded guilty to one count of uploading a copyrighted work being prepared for commercial distribution. The plea agreement says the Star Wars movie was stolen from a post-production company hired by Lucasfilm.
