Porgs are small avian species native to the planet Ahch-To, where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker made his exile in the years following the battle of Endor. The creatures, who dwell on the cliffs of the island where Skywalker lives, can build nests and fly. Baby porgs are known as porglets. Ahch-To is not only home to them, but their cousins, the caretakers.
- They were inspired by Puffins. At first, the puffins were to be cut out of the Ahch-to scenes, but that was to much work, so they made them into the adorable porgs.
- Their voices were a mixture between chickens, turkeys, and doves.
