The new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi came out, and there's a lot to be excited about in there. Family dynamics, kick-ass action sequences, Carrie Fisher's final appearance, spaceships blowing up other spaceships. But there was one unexpected thing that captured the Internet's imagination: porgs.
If you blink watching the trailer you just might miss it, but there's a brand new Star Wars animal out in space, and it's called a porg. They kind of look like an angry, furry bird, with no nose. Everyone is in love with them:

We've been burned before by made up creatures in the Star Wars franchise (cough Jar Jar cough), but the porg looks promising. It's small, cute, and though it appears to have very sharp teeth, it's also extremely huggable. And you can get your very own at a reasonable price:
