    There is a new picture from Entertainment Weekly of a shot with one of the new Porg creatures. I had assumed that these would just be in the background in some scenes but the new picture has me concerned about them being used just to sell toys.

    I mean they are kind of adorable. I don't need a stuffed one in my life.....
    I had similar thoughts when I saw the creatures show up in the behind the scenes videos a few weeks ago.

    The same could be said about every cute creature put into anything. Not everything in the universe can be ugly and grungy. Eventually you will run into something cute and furry with big eyes.

    As long as it serves the story I am ok with it, I am just concerned that these may be thrown in just to be cute.

    ... of course my feelings on this topic will not stop me from buying a Porg plush. ;)

    To paraphrase Penn Jillette, hypocrisy just improves your chances of being correct.

    Just from this one image, I'm a little nervous that Porgs won't look as 'real' next to Chewbacca?

    I don't know how long together we'll see them on screen together. This image of Chewie makes me think they might make a good snack.

    I have a bad feeling about this.

    The Porgs could be the sequel trilogy's Ewoks.

    Yea, I don't think they will be anything more than just a cute little background creature. No chance they help save the galaxy.

    Why couldn't it have been Hoojibs?

    That is what they said last time and tickets went up early. I will be keeping the ticket sites up all day just in case.
