“Long ago in a far, far away galaxy”, little hairy birds called porgs lived on the planet Ahch-To, an ocean world dotted with small islands, without a single continent.
The Porg and its inimitable cry is undoubtedly the star of the trailers for the eighth episode of the intergalactic saga Star Wars, The Last Jedi, The Porgs were imagined to mask the cries of the puffins that inhabit Skellig Michael, the Irish island on which the scenes were filmed, as digitally erasing the puffins' cries would have been extremely labour intensive.
This adorable little bird lives in nests on the cliffs by the sea and feeds on fish that it hunts in the sea. It has thick plumage and webbed feet, no beak, but a flat nose and forward-facing eyes. The babies, called Porglets, are fed by the parents until they are old enough to fend for themselves.
Inspired by both puffins and penguins, it was the director of The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, who came up with the name of the Porg, and its appearance is memorable and fleeting. The Porg appeared in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Skywalker's Ascension. Extremely cute, the Porgs are a huge hit with children, a cuddly gift idea for the little ones and star wars best gifts for fans who like to collect characters from the saga.
