Star Wars: The Last Jedi | Have you met Porgs and the Praetorian Guard?
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is not only introducing new characters in the form on Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern, it is also making additions in the form of new alien creatures of the fictional galaxy and new guards of Supreme leader Snoke.

Porgs are penguin-like wide-eyed creatures. They are furry and have flapping wings. EW got their images and by the looks of it, Chewbacca who is accompanying Rey now, is not very happy with them aboard Millennium Falcon.
