Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Kelly Marie Tran Made A Porg Costume And We Don’t Deserve Her

Posted by October 28, 2017 Comment

There are going to be a lot of Star Wars costumes this Halloween from people wearing Jedi robes to various little kids dressing up as their heroes. However, someone took Star Wars costumes to a new and adorable level and that person is Kelly Marie Tran who plays Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. She didn’t make any Star Wars costumed and she didn’t go the easy route and just wear her characters outfit. No, Tran spent three hours, with help from a friend, making a porg costume.

It seems like everyone who is in Star Wars is loving their life to a truly awesome extent but there is something about Tran is that is even more endearing. Her instagram is adorable and absolutely worth a follow.

She stans her co-workers about as much as fans do:

She has flawless taste because Monsters Inc. is legit:

Yesterday I went to Disney to talk about the press tour for The Last Jedi. I sat in a room with some of the NICEST/FUNNIEST/SMARTEST publicity team in the world, and they gave me a breakdown of what the press tour would be like. I truly cannot believe how lucky I've been, from filming to press. Every person I've worked with has been the absolute best. I feel as if we are coming to the end of this experience β€” the end of my first movie β€” and my heart is so full it might burst. Part of me wants so much to share this movie with you, the other part of me selfishly wants to keep it safe like a locket near my heart so I can have an excuse to hang out with everyone who made it, everyone who is marketing it. Anyway, less than two months now. Seeeeee youuuu sooooon. (ALSO I WORE MY MONSTERS INC SWEATER YESTERDAY AND HAD TO BORROW ANOTHER HAIR TIE WHEN I FOUND OUT THERE WAS A LIFE-SIZE SULLY & MIKE THERE. Obviously, I had to pretend I was Boo πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)

And she is just loving being in Star Wars:

She’s like a Disney animated character brought to life.
