Porg Psychology 101

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

Whether you love them or hate them, porgs have become a very popular – albeit peculiar – new character in the Star Wars saga. We were introduced to these little penguin-puffin-birdlike creatures in the behind-the-scenes footage reel for The Last Jedi, revealed at the D23 Expo in July of 2017.
