‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Star Andy Serkis Does Not Approve Of Eating Porgs

Star Wars Last Jedi Snoke PorgThe final trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was met with overwhelming enthusiasm and many have stated that the porgs are one the biggest reasons for their excitement. However, it appears certain individuals have been wondering if the aquatic creatures would make a fine meal and actor Andy Serkis recently commented on the matter during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

When made aware of the fact that there are fans out there who have been concocting recipes for meals using the porgs, Serkis stated:

“I think that, you know, we should try and resist eating porgs. I really do. I think, you know, they too should have a place on the planet, or the universe. I think let’s all try and not eat porgs.”

The outlet also spoke to The Last Jedi star John Boyega about the porgs at New York Comic Con, where he acknowledged that the creatures are cute and added, “They’re rodents, but they’re great.”

Until today, I had not that realized the concept of making a porg meal had entered anyone’s mind, though I imagine the popularity of the creatures means dining on them is a fairly unpopular idea. What are your thoughts?

In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

Star Wars The Last JediStar Wars: The Last Jedi is right around the corner. The film is the next chapter in the ongoing Skywalker saga. It’s also unique in the Star Wars films as it is the first one to be an immediate sequel to its predecessor. But that does not mean there won’t be plenty of Easter eggs for fans of the greater Star Wars canon to pick up on and enjoy.

One of the biggest criticisms about the previous Star Wars canon, now dubbed Legends, is that ancillary material never connected. Since Disney has taken over and the establishment of the Star Wars Story Group, that has all changed. The modus operandi has been to have everything connect but not in an intrusive way– one that feels more natural to reward the more hardcore fans as well as to intrigue new fans.
