Porgs are the single hottest topic of conversation right now, so, obviously Spoiler Warning for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here, which means we can finally answer the question that's been screaming off everyone's lips: how cute are the porgs? Answer: very. The little residents of Ahch-to made waves on the internet for their big round eyes and extremely huggable bodies, but there was a genuine worry that they would go the way of the Ewok. I'm happy to report that that is not the case, and the porgs don't outstay their welcome at all. They have a few fun little comedy scenes and then it's back to the main conflict with Luke, Rey, and Kylo Ren.

Inspired by the puffins of Skellig Michael, the shooting location that doubled for Ahch-to, the porgs offer some levity to the proceedings. The clueless little birds get just amount of spotlight to break the tension without being obnoxious about it, making them about as perfect a Star Wars animal sidekick as we can ask for. It's true that the porgs don't get to do a lot, but the moments they do have are pretty memorable, so let's take a look back and rank all the best porg scenes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

4. The Porgs Settle Into The Millenium Falcon

Ahch-To is a pretty barren home for the porgs, so when sweet new digs in the form of the Millenium Falcon arrives on Ahch-To, the porgs enact squatters rights. While Rey is busy dealing with her Jedi training under Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca is stuck watching over the Falcon and dealing with his temporary neighbors. The Falcon basically becomes infested with porgs, who pester Chewie in the cockpit, tear up upholstery, and build their nests. Yep, baby porgs -- or porglets -- are born inside of the Falcon, giving Chewie even more grief.
