Something we’ve heard quite a lot in the rumor/spoiler mill is the Porgs of Ahch-To. They are the wild birds that live on the island with Luke. Mild – heavy spoilers lie ahead!
We had Making Star Wars’ sketch up in an article about a month ago. If you need a refresher, here is that sketch again:
We’ve heard that Chewbacca and R2 have some funny interactions with them and Making Star Wars comes through with yet another sketch of R2 with one of them:
This brings us back to the lighter moments in Star Wars like R2 with the Ewoks in Return of the Jedi and Yoda’s crazy banter with Luke in The Empire Strikes Back.
Below, there may be some BIG SPOILERS but this is clearly speculation from things I’ve heard in the rumor mill so please take it with a grain of salt, but this could potentially be something big that happens in The Last Jedi!
You’ve Been Warned!
There have also been rumors that the Porgs play a role with the Force ghosts of Anakin, Obiwan and Yoda. Hear me out on this one:
Apparently, Luke talks to the Porgs (which we already know) but then he talks to them in a way that makes Rey think that he’s crazy. We eventually find out that it’s not the Porgs Luke is talking to but to the Force ghosts of Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda and that Rey can’t see them yet.
