Porgs Cover Up Of Puffins
In The Last Jedi, poor Chewbacca was always annoyed by those adorable Porgs. However, they were not really part of the script. Director Rian Johnson made a last-minute decision of adding Porgs to the script when he learned that they are going to be shooting at the Irish island of Skellig Michael, which is filled with very friendly puffins.
It could have been a costly problem, according to creature concept designer, Jake Lunt Davie. Fortunately, they found a positive solution to this problem. Seeing that they can’t really remove the puffins or physically get rid of them and that digitally removing them will be a lot of work, they just decided to let them be and created their own indigenous species.
