Star Wars: The Force Awakens was primarily focused on the story of a new group of heroes searching for the legendary Luke Skywalker. The film concluded with Rey discovering Luke, seemingly alone, on the planet Ahch-To following the death his students at the hands of the sinister Kylo Ren. However, according to MakingStarWars.Net, Luke’s self-imposed exile may not have been spent entirely in isolation and that he may have enjoyed the company of some creatures familiar to Star Wars fans: The convorees.
According to MakingStarWars.Net, the bird-like creatures known as convorees, who have appeared in the animated series Star Wars Rebels, will make an appearance in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
It appears highly likely we will be seeing convorees in Star Wars: Episode VIII. The sources that got back to me so far have said that’s the gist of the design; however, “leave some room open for the animated shows’ interpretation.” Without having seen the designs myself at this point, I think that’s about as good as I can do to confirm we will see convorees in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
The site had made an earlier report on Luke Skywalker sharing the island with bird-like creatures, though details on what role the creatures will play in the film are currently just speculation.
