Back in July Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo shared some details on the cute cuddly little creatures called porgs that were seen in the special The Last Jedi BTS video presented at D23 Expo. Episode VIII director Rian Johnson has taken to Twitter to respond to a fan’s request for more information on these diminutive dwellers of Ahch-To.
They are sea birds. Their coloring varies. Males are slightly larger than females. They can fly short distances. They're inquisitive.
