Star Wars: The Last Jedi – 9 New Pop Icon Images (Plus Porgs!)

Posted by November 30, 2017 Comment

There are plenty of icons that have come from Star Wars. C-3PO, R2-D2, BB-8, these are some of the images on a set of pop icon pictures from IGN. There are also a few new things including the porgs.

Fun fact about that Porg: according to SFX artist Neal Scanlan, that Porg intentionally looks a bit like Chewie. Apparently the critter “shows some very Wookiee traits in the way he’s colored; his patterning is very similar to Chewie’s,” which might explain why they get along so well. And the Porgs being a part of the “Light Side” pop icon collection officially means they’re some of the good guys, in case you were concerned.

The porgs aren’t the only new face in this series of images. The other one is the Caretakers who live on the planet Ahch-To where Luke Skywalker was in hiding.

This species is indigenous to the planet of Ahch-To, where Luke Skywalker has been taking up residence. Scanlan said of these creatures, which are partially related to the Porgs, “it felt like the only creatures that would ever exist on this island were those indigenous to it, where very few other species and DNA would have reached them. So they’re an extrapolation from the porgs and have bird-like feet, but they’re a further developed race.”

Summary: Having taken her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher, and Adam Driver. It will be released on December 15th.
