Thought Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Porgs were cute? Baby Porgs are pure nightmare fuel

Porgs are the low-key MVP of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They’re cute, fluffy, and have a-d’aww-able eyes. So, you’d think baby Porgs would double down on being oh-so-huggable, right? Wrong. So very, very wrong. I feel like I should give some sort of warning. They’re so gross and potentially NSFW, lest you throw up on your keyboard.

Do you have a bucket ready? Good. Here they are…

Coming from Japanese website (via CinemaBlend), the toy line shows off what looks like mini-Snoke heads nested on some icky uncooked noodles. If nothing else, they look like they’d make a mighty fine breakfast – and it’s probably what Luke has been snacking on after all those years in exile on Ahch-To.

Like a butterfly breaking free from its cocoon, Porgs eventually turn from hard-boiled hell-creatures to everyone’s favourite furry bird… thing. I just hope these Baby Porgs don’t show up on screen for long, because I don’t think the movie would survive being R-Rated.

We’ve seen Baby Porgs, normal Porgs… what next, elderly Porgs? Disco Porgs? I feel like we’re definitely going to get a Minions-style Porg spin-off down the line. Just keep those monsters away from it – and out of my dreams.

Looking for something a little less balls-to-the-wall creepy? Star Wars: The Last Jedi would have featured an evil Luke clone if it was up to Mark Hamill (that’s still pretty creepy). Wait, I’ve got another one: Star Wars: The Last Jedi subtitles may reveal who Snoke and Luke were talking to.

On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
