According to our pals over at StarWars.com, porgs—the newest creatures in the Star Wars universe, making their sure-to-be-legendary debut in Star Wars: The Last Jedi—are “small, flat-muzzled avians,” with an inquisitive nature, “that flock about the rocks and roost in the cliffs of Luke Skywalker’s secluded island.” And based on their appearance in the official Last Jedi trailer, they also appear to be seriously tough cookies; honestly, to hang out with the likes of Chewbacca, you’ve gotta be.
We cannot wait to meet them when The Last Jedi rockets into theaters on December 15. However, if you need a porg fix ASAP, we here at D23 figured we’d take a spin through shopDisney.com to discover some of the most unique ways you can acquire one of your very own. (And remember: D23 Gold Members get a special discount, good for 15 percent off purchases of $65 or more.) Porgs are a prodigiously perfect present for under your favorite Star Wars fan’s Christmas tree!
