AceShowbiz - This time, Chewbacca has had enough of Porg's scream. In another TV spot for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", the giant wookie is in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon with a screaming porg. Annoyed, Chewbacca is swiping the Porg and knocks it off of its seat, as a way to silence the creature. Chewie's action and frustration may be fueled by his effort to save the day. He is piloting the ship which has several TIE Fighters on his tail. Avoiding being killed is already aggravating, and Porg's ear-piercing screech only exacerbates his irritation.
The footage is preceded by clips of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in the legendary Millenium Falcon and Finn (John Boyega) driving a spaceship during a space battle. The footage also shows Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) in her shiny armor carrying a weapon and says, "So good to have you back." The 15-second clip also features some snippets from previous TV spots and trailer. Even though the TV spot is very short, the clip shows the excitement of the upcoming film.
Porg has been seen in the previous trailers and TV spots for "Last Jedi", where the cute, penguin-like creature is always shown screaming. Porg has quickly become worldwide phenomenon because of its cute look and personality. Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, thought that the creature's "adorable" and "hilarious".
"Last Jedi", which will come out in U.S. theaters on December 15, is projected to have a massive opening weekend at the box office. Many predict that the film will make $215 million in its first three days domestically. Even though the number is below "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" first weekend revenue, the newest "Star Wars" installment will still be the second-biggest earning film of all time, ahead of 2015's "Jurassic World" which gathered $208 million.
