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. Avid fans of the saga have had porgs on the brain since this initial introduction, but the debut of the official trailer for The Last Jedi, which aired during halftime of Monday Night Football on October 9, caused the general public to catch porg fever in a big way! Instantly, the Internet was packed with porgs, including this Photoshop challenge, posted by gizmodo.com.

But, why are these little feather bags such a draw for fans, myself included? I’m not usually one to fall prey to overwhelming feelings of “gotta have that,” but these porgs have certainly won me over! So, I decided to take a look at the psychology of porgs – what underlying reasons could there be for this fanatic attraction? What is the possible connection between avian mythology, bird/human personality traits, and the design choices of the porg character itself?

#Obitine and #Padakin: A Clone Wars Ring Theory Analysis

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

Now that I have the attention of the Star Wars shippers out there…!

August, 2017 marked the nine-year anniversary of the theatrical premiere of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. On March 11, 2013, it was announced that Lucasfilm would be cancelling the beloved television series. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I wept at that announcement, and went through the entire grief process, trying to come to terms with the loss. I pined for the characters, the stories, and just the idea of being able to look forward to each passing week, so I could fill the Star Wars need in my life. I listened to the beautifully compelling musical works of Kevin Kiner, reliving the emotional journey of some of the characters and pivotal scenes.
