Daisy Ridley Throws Porgs Under the Bus. Says Baby Yoda Is Cuter

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel, the star of 'The Rise of Skywalker' settles the cuteness debate.

Just in case you were concerned that there is actually a contest for which Star Wars creature is the cutest, that debate has just been settled by perhaps, the greatest Jedi in the galaxy. Daisy Ridley — Rey herself — has made it very clear that she prefers Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian to her cuddly Porg co-stars any day of the week.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, Ridley may have just relegated the Porgs to the same status as the Ewoks, or worse…the Gungans. When Fallon showed her a photo of Baby Yoda (or the Child) from The Mandalorian next to a photo of a Porg from The Last Jedi, Fallon asked: “Which is cuter.” And with that same precision that she sliced Kylo Ren’s face, Ridley didn’t hesitate: “Baby Yoda.”

Half-jokingly, she went on to say “Look, I’m not a big fan of the Porgs. We worked for six months on The Last Jedi, and in every interview ‘what about the Porgs?’ I was like, ‘The Porgs were there for a day!’ I was there every day for six months!”

So there you have it. Even Rey prefers the Porgs to Baby Yoda. Which, on some level, makes sense. After all, Chewie did eat one of the Porgs, so how much do we really care about them?

That said, you can buy plenty of plush Porgs for your kids this Christmas, and though we’ve got some Baby Yoda shirts, we’re still waiting desperately for some plush Baby Yoda toys.
