The anticipation leading up to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer was palpable. We here at Geek Girl Authority were all online together waiting. And waiting. And waiting. Hurry up, football! We have galactic matters to which we must attend!
Of course, when the trailer played, our online excitement stopped and our Slack app was silent. Twitter and Facebook went dark as we turned our attention to the most important thing happening in the world. We watched with baited breath and then all of a sudden, there was a collective Internet shriek when a porg appeared next to Chewbacca. In that one shot, between Chewy and the porg, there was so much cuteness overload! The porg! Those eyes! That scream! I want the plushie, now!
There was so much porg adoration in fact, you may have forgotten that our other resident cute Star Wars character, BB-8, was in the trailer too. In fact, the poor droid was being electrocuted in battle at one point.
According to this bit on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, our love for the porg and our immediate forgetfulness of BB-8 has taken a toll on the droid. Can you blame him? Watch the video to see how BB-8 is feeling and then, for the love of the Force, give BB-8 the feels he deserves!
