Mansplaining Porg

Last night on Discord chat, we discussed:

  • the proper pronunciation of “Ocarina” [we were right all along!];
  • how adorable bats are, aside from vampire bats which are butt and also terrifying;
  • the convergent evolution of Australia’s animal kingdom:
    “You like this normal animal? What if it had pockets on its body and poison somewhere?? Fuck you.”
    -Australia
  • how board games Risk and Catan end friendships;
  • curiosity about the frog hippo nuns called “The Caretakers” in The Last Jedi; and
  • the variety of porgs that we are hoping to see in The Last Jedi.

If there are porgs that are black and white and look like cute little penguins, I will die.”

Star Wars Speculation mod u/CartoonWarp didn’t miss a beat, providing a shopped version of the screaming porg we saw in the full TLJ trailer.

And so, with invaluable input from u/shenanakins and u/needs_more_sprinkles, we added a bow-tie.

And then a monocle.

And then a top hat.

Then a lit cigar for his adorable flipper.

And finally, a jaunty mustache.

u/needs_more_sprinkles:
That is a man who would smoke expensive Cuban cigars and tell me my opinions don’t matter.
He’s everything we could have hoped for.
Thank you.

 

And with that, the Mansplaining Porg was born.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to get back to gatekeeping. Sexistly.

About that Princess Interview…

And it turns out Adam was talking about the princess in the Hidden Fortress, not Rey:

Driver is on a roll now, discussing what excites him: character and narrative and cinematic influences. The original Star Wars was an homage to Akira Kurosawa’s 1958 film The Hidden Fortress, he says, and the link lives on in the new trilogy, in which concealed identities drive the narrative. Then he lets it slip.

“You have, also, the hidden identity of this princess who’s hiding who she really is so she can survive and Kylo Ren and her hiding behind these artifices,” Driver says, apparently dropping a massive revelation about Rey’s royal origins.

Leia and the Force

What could have been…

One story Canon has taken a very different approach with from Legends is Leia’s Force sensitivity. In the Legends, she trained on and off for years, eventually becoming a full fledged Jedi Knight. In Canon, she seems to have avoided developing her potential entirely. The recent trailer may give some insight as to why.
