Insults referencing unseen space critters is the true heart and soul of Star Wars. And now, in a new deleted scene, The Last Jedi has joined the ranks of Womp Rats, Nerfs, Gundarks and Moofs with the latest offscreen creature diss: Captain Phasma ain’t nothing but a “Whoop Hog.”

On Wednesday, the Star Wars show debuted a new deleted scene from the forthcoming home video release of The Last Jedi. In it, Finn and Phasma’s rematch is slightly expanded and now includes Finn outing Phasma for being a coward on Starkiller Base in The Force Awakens. He also calls her a “Whoop Hog,” which feel like it might be friends with the “Womp Rats” Luke referenced in A New Hope.

If you don’t count the special edition, we’ve never really scene Womp Rats in a Star Wars movie. Nor have we seen a Gundark, a creature that, according to Han, Luke was strong enough to “pull the ears off of” in The Empire Strikes Back. Gundarks were also referenced but not seen in Revenge of the Sith.

We’ve also never seen a “Nerf,” a creature that Leia references in The Empire Strikes Back when she calls Han a “nerf herder.”

And then there are the infamous “moofs” referenced by Han Solo in The Force Awakens when he dismissively suggests that whoever messed with the control on the Falcon is a “moof milker.” Sadly, the creature Luke Skywalker milked in The Last Jedi is not a moof, but instead called a Thala-siren, even though no one says its name in the movie.

Sometimes creatures who appear onscreen in Star Wars movies don’t get named, like Luke’s gross Thala-siren, or…the Ewoks. Yeah, no one says the word “Ewok” in Return of the Jedi. Really. You had to look that shit up in your read-along storybooks in 1983. The point is, some critters we hear about but never see, and other we see, but don’t know what they’re called, unless we look it up.

Either way, this deleted scene from The Last Jedi might be considered cool by some fans because it’s a longer version of a sick fight scene. But what does a whoop hog actually sound like when it squeals? And will the cycle of hearing about weird critters, but hiding them from the audience ever be broken? If he’s kind, J.J. Abrams will give us one scene in Episode IX in which all the unseen critters of Star Wars will have a party.


The Last Jedi is out on digital download on March 13, and on Blu-ray and DVD on March 27.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 is just around the corner. It might feel like Season 5 just began, but as summer winds down you can expect to see some major changes in the popular game. So when exactly will these changes occur? And what will they be?

Here’s everything you need to know about the start of Fortnite Season 6, and our best theories for what to expect in the next couple of weeks.

It’s finally here! Maniac, a trippy new Netflix series starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, is set to debut on September 21 (that’s tomorrow!) bringing all 10 episodes to the streaming service. But when exactly is it time to settle in and binge through the new show from the mind of Cary Fukunaga (best-know for True Detective Season 1, It, and Beasts of No Nation)? Here’s what you need to know.

Welcome home. Never sleep again. Shirley Jackson’s acclaimed 1959 horror novel The Haunting of Hill House is coming to life as a new Netflix series, and the first trailer is so bone-chilling spooky, it might earn a permanent spot in your annual Halloween marathon.

On Wednesday, Netflix sent chills up everyone’s spines when the streaming giant released the trailer for The Haunting of Hill House, starring Michiel Huisman (Orphan Black), Carla Gugino (Wayward Pines), and Kate Siegel (Ouija: Origin of Evil). The series debuts on October 12.

Is the Hand of the King jealous that Jon Snow and Daenerys have fallen for each other? (Gross, BTW.) Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage says yes, but it’s also way more “complicated” than it seems.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dinklage describes Tyrion Lannister’s “jealous” feelings for Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), who has fallen for her nephew (unknowingly) Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington, in the most recent season of HBO’s monster hit fantasy Game of Thrones.

Scruffy nerf herders, rejoice! Jonathan Kasdan, co-screenwriter of Solo: A Star Wars Story, has revealed a whopping 53 cool factoids that reveal new insight into the making of the film, as well as very subtle Easter eggs even hardcore Star Wars fans might miss.

On Friday, Kasdan commemorated the Digital HD release of Solo and its imminent arrival on Blu-ray on September 25 with 53 random facts about the film on Twitter. They include everything from personal anecdotes to hidden Bruce Springsteen homages, to even admitting Thandie Newton was “too good” to play the fated smuggler Val.
