The New Star Wars Brought Us Porgs, and You Can't Escape Them

The New Star Wars Brought Us Porgs, and You Can't Escape Them

The footage also includes images of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker training Daisy Ridley's Rey, while warning "This is not going to go the way you think". As nice as it is to see Carrie Fisher crop up in The Last Jedi, just imagine Leia capping off her run through the Star Wars universe with a star turn in the finale. The tiny, wide-eyed creature stealing hearts the world over is called a Porg, and here's everything you could possibly need to know about it.

The clip featured all the latest characters from the Star Wars universe.

A 3D midnight screening is also being held on December 14 at the Dundee Odeon, and tickets appear to be available.

Porgs are pint-sized bird-like animals that, according to Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo, are "the Star Wars version of puffins". "I've only seen this raw strength once before, it didn't scare me enough then, it does now" he says, looking pretty spooked.

But Fisher will always be missed.

"Worldwide, everyone feels that gap she left, but we all have to hang in there".

The new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi brings with it plenty of doom and gloom, perhaps signaling a sequel in which the Dark Side emerges victorious one again.

Just as Snoke calls Kylo "special", the scene cuts to Rey apparently unleashing her lightsaber for the first time.

The canine, who has 146,000 followers on Instagram, has paid tribute to his beloved owner many times, and even when he isn't posting about her, he uses the hashtag #garymisseshismom. This seems to indicate how cerebral Johnson wants Kylo's journey to be, maybe even offering a small window of hope and redemption, should he opt to spare Leia.
