We’ve had plenty of cuteness in the Star Wars saga before, but The Last Jedi looks set to ramp that up to 11 with the arrival of the unbearably adorable porgs.

Over at The Metro, I take a look at the history of cuteness across the saga and the arrival of the porgs.

There can be little doubt that the galaxy far, far away has delivered some of cinema’s most astounding moments, riveting plot twists and memorable characters.

We’ve had the terror of Darth Vader, the innocence of Luke Skywalker, the sliminess of Jabba the Hutt and the wisdom of Yoda.

Star Wars changed the landscape of modern cinema in so many ways, but not all of it was about being cool.

Sometimes it was about being cute.
