One of the great things about Star Wars are the aliens. From A New Hope to Rogue One there have been countless aliens to either admire or fear and thankfully The Last Jedi continues that tradition by introducing some incredible new aliens to the Star Wars universe.
There are some MINOR SPOILERS ahead and so if you haven’t watched the movie yet I’m giving you a heads up. Okay, now that that’s out of the way here are the aliens.
These aliens that resided on Ach-To were so cool. Even though they looked so odd they had so much personality. In fact, I liked these aliens more than some of the actual human characters in the movie. They had attitude and I loved that when Rey was tearing stuff up in the Jedi village they weren’t having it. To them she was a complete nuisance and I loved that interaction in the movie.
To be honest, I didn’t think I would like the Porgs as much as I did. Whenever I saw them in the commercials and trailers I felt worried. Would these end up becoming the new Ewoks of this modern trilogy? I’m glad to say they weren’t.
I immediately knew I liked these little fur birds when Chewbacca was going to eat some roasted porgs and they were looking at him in saddened horror. It was one of the funniest moments in the movie and it immediately made me like these aliens. And seeing them nesting in the Milennium Falcon was so hilarious that I just didn’t know what to do. I am officially on the Porg bandwagon now.
While the Vulptexes had a smaller role in The Last Jedi than I thought they would when they did appear on screen they literally shined. I also loved how small and cute they were. These are clearly the coolest space foxes you could ever see.
There were, of course, many other new species in this movie but these happened to be the ones that I loved the most. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force Be With You.
