This article is about the creatures from Ahch-To. You may be looking for the Trandoshan bounty hunter.

Porgs were a sea bird[3] species native to the planet Ahch-To, where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker made his exile in the years following the victory over the Galactic Empire. The creatures, who dwelled on the cliffs of the island where Skywalker lived, could build nests and fly. Male porgs were known to be slightly bigger in size than females.[3] Baby porgs were called porglets.[1] A flock of porgs was known as a "murder."[4]

During the First Order–Resistance war, at least one porg found its way aboard the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

"…porgs are cute. You fall into those deep, soulful eyes. I think a lot of people are going to want a porg as a pet."
―Pablo Hidalgo[src]

Porgs were designed for the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. They were inspired by the real-life puffins that live on Skellig Michael,[6] and were created using a variety of effects including puppets and CGI.[1] Porgs were first revealed in behind the scenes footage from The Last Jedi at the D23 Expo in July 2017.[7] They were officially named in a StarWars.com interview with Lucasfilm Story Group creative executive Pablo Hidalgo.[1]
