Porgs look eerily similar to these earthbound animals (and toys)

Porgs might be native to the planet Ahch-To, but the new Star Wars creatures arriving in December with the new The Last Jedi film look strangely familiar.

After more details about the puffin-like creatures came out Thursday, we couldn’t look away. It’s so cute, but also scary maybe even evil?

But there’s hope that the flying, nest-building creatures are the new trilogy’s version of the Ewok.

Here’s what the suspiciously cute porg reminds us of:

Speaking of penguins, it looks like one.

A colleague thought “penguin fetus” was more accurate. Or a weird penguin mixed with a robot. But plain-old penguin works, too.

As Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo already said, these little dudes look like the Star Wars version of puffins.

Those eyes make it look just like a baby owl.

Or one of these owl-shaped cabins.

The likeness to a Furby is strong with this one.

It kinda, sorta, maybe even looks like a tamagotchi come on, with the oval shape, you see it right?

A baby seal they even have the same shocked expression.

Bonus: Actor Wilford Brimley

Maybe it’s the mustache in the exact shape of the porg’s mouth, but something about the 82-year-old actor known for 1982’s The Thing strikes quite a resemblance to the Star Wars critter.

After all this, it’s safe to say porgs look a bit odd, if not cute. But the fact that babies are called “porglets” is irresistible.
