Unless you are obsessively keeping up with every shred, snippet and morsel of news about the seemingly neverending stream of Star Wars movies these days – not complaining being an old fan from 1977 days but there are, to be fair, many films in the pipeline – you may not have heard of the Porgs, cute as hell creatures that seem destined to be the stars of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which releases in December this year.
Inhabitants of the planet Ahch-To, where Master Jedi Luke Skywalker exiled himself followed the climactic events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, they are an undeniably plucky, fun avian species who, in the latest of a series of Blips videos produced by the Star Wars YouTube channel, seem to have taken a liking to BB-8, who debuted, to his storm of cuteness, in 2015’s The Force Awakens.
More specifically, to BB-‘s head.
And as you can see in this adorably hilarious short film, which will only take 45 seconds of your precious galactic time, he sets about with typical tenacity to get it back.
Something the Porgs don’t take to kindly … and so the fun continues …
