The Creative Process Behind the STAR WARS Porg

The ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Sound Designer Ren Klyce recently sat down with CinemaBlend to explain the process into giving those cute little avians, better known as the ‘Porg’, their distinct squawk, through a mixture of turkey calls and both chicken and doves chirps.

“At Skywalker Sound there’s a chicken coop with these little chickens, and Coya Elliott, our first assistant, went down and recorded those chickens,” Klyce said. “Then we took that sound and slowed it down and stretched it out and found little chirps.”

Along with having a dove expert who releases them at weddings come into the studio to record them, the sounds of both the turkey and chickens were all cut together to give the Porg their sound. The birds got their look from actual Puffins, birds that inhabit Skellig Island, the site for the setting of the planet Ahch-To, where Rey goes to learn and train under Luke Skywalker.

Love them or hate them, the Porg have caused a merchandise craze and are seemingly a new fan-favorite animal in the Star Wars Universe.
