Porgs were an avian species native to the planet Ahch-To, where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker made his exile in the years following the Battle of Endor. The creatures, who dwelled on the cliffs of the island where Skywalker lived, could build nests and fly. Baby porgs were known as porglets.[1]

"…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."
