New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Footage Features Shocking, Unadulterated Porg Violence

Chewbacca, how dare you.

Every day we get closer to The Last Jedi, more and more snippets of footage come out. But today, dear reader, instead of delightful shots of Poe Dameron drifting in an X-Wing or Luke Skywalker emotionally entering the Millennium Falcon, we have something sinister. Something cruel.

DON’T HIT THE PORG, CHEWIE! Ever since the fluffly little darlings wormed their way into hearts, we’ve been excited for the Chewbacca/Porg relationship. This little guy’s feathers were even designed to make him look a little like Chewie! And yet, the poor porg is swept aside, all so Chewbacca can do something like not make the spaceship they’re in crash or save the day or whatever Wookiee co-pilots do.


So rude. I thought better of you, Chewbacca, I really did.

Man, someone should drop a moon on that Wookie.
