Pretty close @LumberjackNick!

As you remember, way back on April 26, MSW’s Jason Ward–with the help of Sketch Wars’ Lumberjack Nick–featured the first preview of Star Wars newest stocking-stuffer. In fact, over the past few months, featured four stories about the space birds:

But fans are not yet convinced that the cuteness is consistent.

However, even Hidalgo’s description is adorable.

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!? May the Force be with us…
