    But how would the dianoga get in the Death Star anyway? It's a secret station in space and I don't even know how it could have gotten on board.

    Well in legends they stowed aboard garbage ships in microscopic larval form. So something like that I guess.

    If this is supposed to be the darkest SW ever y r theses cute things in it? Bad enough if Luke haves a chat with it. I really hope there small, like penguin small & don't sound annoying.

    It's ll matter of balance. If a film is only doom & gloom, it becomes unbearable to watch. You need more light-hearted moments to make the dark stuff even more hitting. That's why there are no new true tragedies written for the theater - the oversaturation of misadventures of main heroes creates the opposite effect to the desired katharsis.

    Don't let the art fool you. They might not be so cute in puppet or CGI and they might have maws of needle teeth and swarm like Tasmanian devil style piranha.

    So are they going to compete with furbies for the cutesy bird-thing market?

    Furbies are made by Hasbro, who's the official producer of Star Wars-toys, so there is a possibility that we will see Furby-branded Porgs.

    Take Yoda in TESB, we meet him as a silly dotty old alien who provides a bit of humour, some of it slapstick, and he turns out to be a very serious jedi master and introduces Luke to the darkside of his own psyche.

    Why do these birds even freaking matter? Is Ward so low on info that he is releasing his Club Penguin OCs and saying they're sketches based on Star Wars concept art?

    So with the new VF article that came out, they mention "an indigenous race of caretaker creatures" on Ahch-To. Who are they taking care of? Is it Luke? Are the creatures they're referring to different than the birds being referenced in this thread?

    I thought from the article it implied that the birds were caretakers of the ruins.

    Nah they have fishing net traps, seagull poop bombs, sea shell weapons. The first order will fall to the anachronistic warfare of the penguin fraggles aka Porgs.
