Porgs are "small, flat-muzzled avians that flock about the rocks and roost in the cliffs of Luke Skywalker's secluded island" on the uncharted world of Ahch-to. They are round and fluffy, with snouts instead of beaks.

Porgs are curious and inquisitive. They are attracted to shiny objects, including Luke's lightsaber. They are also quite smart - they seem to understand some human language. They also seemed to realize what was happening when Chewbacca roasted some of their kind for dinner.

Porgs are sea-going birds. They can fly, but not far enough to reach distant islands. They dive and swim to hunt fish and crustaceans, similar to the real-world puffin. They build nests and their babies are called porglets. Males can be differentiated from females due to their larger size and orange feathers around their eyes. A group of porgs is referred to as a "murder."

Did you know? Porgs were used to digitally mask real birds - puffins - that were present in large numbers during the filming of The Last Jedi. Porgs were based on birds, bats, seals, beavers, otters, pug dogs, and flying squirrels. Both puppets and computer-generated images (CGI) were used to create the porgs.
