Star Wars Porgs



Disney has revealed the latest creatures to join the ever expanding Star Wars family. Meet the bug-eyed, globs of fur called the Porgs.

These Porgs were first spotted in the behind the scenes promo at this years D23. Star Wars have always had a, shall we say, interesting history when it comes to cute characters in their films. While most will agree that R2-D2 and BB-8 were worthy additions to the Star Wars universe (which includes Ewoks and the dreaded Jar-Jar Binks), opinions vary drastically.

So where do these balls of eyes and fur come from? Well, according to Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo these creatures are native to Ahch-To and are mostly found along the cliffs of the island where Luke and Rey will be training. Seeing as these creatures are also able to fly, they tend to build their nests high on the cliffside. Hidalgo also confirmed that both CGI and puppets will be used to bring the Porgs to life.

While these creatures are definitely cute (just look at those soulful eyes), there is no doubt that they will help Disney push up their toy revenue when stuffed Porgs eventually hit the toy store shelves. It’s probably a safe bet that we will be seeing these guys faces adorning all kinds of merchandise when the film releases.

What do you think? Will these creatures make a worthy addition to the Star Wars universe or is this Jar-Jar Binks all over again?

Let’s hope it isn’t another Jar-Jar

Guest

Or some kind of jar-jar/ewok hybrid…

Looks a bit like Groot’s facial expression, no?

Guest

Are his eyes open or closed ? I can’t tell. Is he wearing glasses or is that just his eyeballs.? Oh goodness this could be another animated disaster .!

Getting jar jar irritate vibes

Guest

Give me a good story, not this publicity crap

Guest

It just looks like a background animal to me. Just something to add flavor to the scenery. I don’t think we have to worry to much about Jar-Jar Binks making a spiritual return.

Guest

Heard they single handedly defeat the second order

Guest

Jar jar being publicly excutited would be cool

Remember that George Lucas gave us “cute” Ewoks and “cute” Droid cartoons nearly 40 years before Disney aquired the rights…. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone starts bleeting how Disneyifed Star Wars has become….

Guest
