Star Wars: The Last Jedi porgsImage Source:

Around a minute and a half in the Last Jedi trailer, we see a shot of Chewbacca in the Millennium Falcon and sitting next beside him is a cute wide-eyed penguin-like creature. That creature is called a porg.


Porgs are sea bird species native to the planet Ahch-To, where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker made his exile. Porgs also live on the cliffs of the island where Luke Skywalker was seen at the end of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

These cute creatures were designed specifically for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi which we will be giving out free tickets to this weekend. Tune in and look out for these promos!
