Adorable New Star Wars Critters Make Peoples Feel Warm and Fuzzy Inside


Porgs! GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
While we await the next trailer for this year's Star Wars movie, new images from The Last Jedi have made their way online. They show off all of the key characters you'd expect, but let's be honest: the real highlight are the porgs.

As pictured below (via Entertainment Weekly), porgs are basically the cutest thing ever. First revealed back at D23 earlier this summer, these big-eyed creatures feel almost genetically engineered to sell merchandise, and yet you know that you wouldn't pass up an opportunity to give one a hug.
More.

Fuck off Disney, and take your pathetically engineered answer to Minions with you. You have no power here.

Fucking grumpy cat with anime eyes, just think of all the shares and retweets and reddit posts we can mine from this! FUCK. OFF.

That's a creature in the film? I thought it might be something Chewbacca crapped out.

Naturally this is all about toy sales. Baby Groot. Minions, This...thing. Product tie ins. Pretty simple.

Here's the simple facts.

1) We all want this franchise to continue.

2) But we're getting older.

3) They must bring in new kids.

4) I'm fine with it.

5) It is kind of cute.

I don't see it being cute, my definition must be wayyyyyy different than others. So far it feels like a Jar Jar gimmick piece of garbage.

Very level-headed way of looking at it. I agree.

I guess you're forgetting the series has been selling toys since 1977. George Lucas pioneered the way movies are merchandised and Star Wars has always been about being toyetic.

Congratulations, they came up with something worse than Ewoks. Are we sure George Lucas isn't involved still?

"ewoks are bad" "accept this new ewoks because star wars has done it before"

I was hoping this new one would be better than the farce awakens, seems it will be worse.

These comments are completely uncalled for.

Any kid who likes this needs to be retroactively aborted in a bucket of mouthwash. Hmmm, I'd better not show this to my kids.

The Force. They missed a real opportunity there, too. Could have named some stool softener as "The Force - it will move you in ways you could never imagine."

I will give this to you. You answered the question. Hilarious.

I am still Star Wars bitch even though I hated "the farce awakens". Rogue One restored my faith but I will likely still watch these films no matter what. I cannot let go of watching star wars in the 70's and how it blew my mind. Playing with the toys, etc.

So the thing in that picture looks like a cross between Grumpy Cat, a penguin, and a baby seal. I think Chewie should club it before it multiplies like a Tribble.

Incorrect.



Though in all seriousness I remember them having that kind of hover ball floating headset toy using "the force" so they did indeed make a toy from it.
