Porgs are something close to birds as they can built nests and fly. They are from Ahch-To and are the most adorable things you see in the whole “Star Wars” series. Not mentioning the fact they appeared only in the behind the scene footage.

There is no better description than the one Pablo Hidalgo made: “…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.”

Baby porgs are called porglets and the bunch of them is called “murder”.

According to Wookiepedia (we do hope we can trust the source with such title), the developers were inspired by real-existing birds – puffins – from Skellig Michael.

To tell the truth, we all know why the creators of Last Jedi included this absolute cute and adorable big-eyed fluffy bird: to make a new kid’s obsession and sell toys and various kinds of accessories.

Hype with no return

Bob Al-Greene, illustrator at Mashable, decided to conduct a social experiment. He redesigned his profile in Twitter: name to “Porg Lover,” avatar to a porg, and my cover photo to a nice picture of the same creature and “Last Jedi” poster.

Also, Bob Al-Greene has written a few post with #Star Wars, GIFs and pictures of porgs:

And you know what? He immediately gained thousand of subscribers and his account has been officially verified! Something that was intended as a joke turned into real fan-page.

Hype has acquired a new Force.
