    yes, the porgs need a thread of their own and you know it.

    so: cute little critters you want to cuddle or the annoying ewoks of the ST?

    i feel slightly on the fence. a lot depends on their behavior.
    for the moment they're kind of a combination of a puffin and an otter, both of which are adorable in real life.
    so technically it should work?

    Right now they are firmly in the cute little critters camp & at least this time they are unlikely to take out a squad of the FO finest. But until we get to see them in actual footage it going to be hard to say if they do become a distraction during the film.

    I like them.
    They have the potential to be great creatures. On the on hand they will be used for comedy and cuteness, that's for sure. But on the other hand I think these little creatures will have a pretty badass moment in the movie. Maybe they'll save Rey from a monster or something like that.

    i agree: they are likely just part of the fauna of the island.
    will probably just see them bumbling around while Rey and Luke are having heavier dialogue-intense negotiations.

    A combination of a Puffin and an Otter...

    ...and they didn't go with Potter. Feels like a missed opportunity. I am going to vote for "fauna" of Ach-To while simultaneously a potential merchandising extravaganza (if kids really take to them)

    They definitely look like seal penguins to me. Senguins? Peals?

    Beware of Darth Porgius. I believe the Pawgies might have been twisted by the Dark side of the force. These Pawgs cannot be trusted.

    Personally, I am more interested in the metallic crystalline fox. How in nature, even if in the GFFA, does such a thing occur?? So bizarre.

    Until Porgs use rocks and logs to destroy a walker, they are just neat little background critters to enjoy like a Bantha

    In short.

    Not a flying creatures.

    Those are sea creatures, fishing and swiming in sea, probabaly nesting on those small islands. Like a penguins.

    Its a waterworld .

    We can put this as a new fact.

    I was expecting them to be more bird-like... but they'd look absolutely ridiculous flying!
