The Porg From The New "Star Wars" Trailer Is Already A Perfect Meme

"If even one porg dies, I will fucking burn the 'Star Wars' franchise to the ground..."

Posted on

The new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer came out last night, and there was A LOT TO PROCESS. But an adorable hero emerged from the epic clip. Allow me to introduce...the porg:

Disney

What's a porg, you ask? Great question! We were first introduced to porgs over the summer in a behind-the-scenes reel shown at D23, and here's the basic 411 on porgs from Pablo Hidalgo at Lucasfilm Story Group:

Porgs are native to Ahch-To, and can be found dwelling along the cliffs of the island where Luke and Rey are. In many ways, they’re the Star Wars version of puffins. They build nests. They can fly. Their babies are called porglets.

PORGLETS?! ARE YOU TRYING TO BREAK ME?

Anyways, now that a porg made its glorious trailer debut, the internet has lost its collective shit. People are feeling seen...

This porg is my spirit animal & its expression in this picture basically sums up my entire life #TheLastJedi

oh hey, seems there is a physical manifestation of my soul during a panic attack; it is called a "porg"

...and more than a little warm and fuzzy inside...

I have watched this little Porg squawk about 70 times now. IT IS HEALING ME.

Leia's outfit is actually made specifically for porg snuggling.

Me when Leia showed up in the trailer, but then the Porg yelled.

...and honestly just completely goddamn protective:

We must protect the porg at all cost. #TheLastJedi

If even one Porg dies, I will fucking burn the Star Wars franchise to the ground

Of course, people are dying to get their hands on porg merchandise IMMEDIATELY:

“$15B in sales of Porg stuffed animals and merchandise allows Disney to keep ESPN running for another year” - futur… https://t.co/hUAdTG3YEZ

Me: Fuck I hate ewoks. Kiddy shit to sell toys. Also me: I WILL PAY ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR ANY PORG MERCHANDISE AVAILABLE

My roommate who doesn’t care about Star Wars saw the porg and screamed WHAT IS THAT I WANT ONE

Because whether you love porgs or think you hate porgs, the truth is that porgs are here to stay:

Stop pretending you hate Porgs. You love 'em. They're your favourite thing in fact. Porg Porg Porg Porg. Porg Porg.

What did I learn from the new #TheLastJedi trailer? Porg is the new Han Solo. You can't tell me otherwise.

And we are forever changed. THE END.

This could very well be the meme that ends all memes. #TheLastJedi #porg
