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.
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
Porgs were created for the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson. They were created using a variety of effects including puppets and CGI. Porgs were first revealed in behind the scenes footage from The Last Jedi at the D23 Expo in July 2017. They were officially named in a StarWars.com interview with Lucasfilm Story Group creative executive Pablo Hidalgo.
