'Last Jedi' Controversy: Mark Hamill Debunks Porg Misconceptions


Amidst concerns that everybody on Luke Skywalker’s residence of Ahch-To will eat Porgs in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill clarified on Twitter that Luke won’t be among them. However, just because Luke went vegetarian after eating Aunt Beru’s Womp Rat Brisket all those years ago doesn’t mean that Chewbacca and the Caretakers of Ahch-To won’t still gobble those creatures right up.

Fans have been loving the adorable new bird-like Porgs that native to Ahch-To, but they grew concerned after a troubling passage was discovered in a new book called Star Wars Made Easy. The “Luke’s Island Highlights” section describes Porgs as follows:

“Small, bird-like porgs are the island’s most adorable inhabitants. Cute? Definitely. Tasty? Maybe…”

If Porgs are only “maybe” tasty, then that probably means that at least one character will probably eat them and experience their middling amounts of tastiness. The likeliest culprit, considering the feather sticking out of his mouth in a promotional photo, would be Chewbacca.

If we can take Mark Hamill’s words as canon, then Luke would never even dream of it:

So what has Luke been eating all these years, then? The Last Jedi might not even address it, but it’s a safe bet that somebody might give the Porgs a taste.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released in theaters December 15.
