THE LAST JEDI’s Kelly Marie Tran Made a Porg Costume For Halloween

Later this year, Star Wars: The Last Jedi will officially introduce fans to the porgs, the adorable bird-like creatures that inhabit Ahch-To, home of the first Jedi temple and where Luke Skywalker‘s currently hanging his robes. And there’s at least one cast member who isn’t shy about showing her love for porgs: Kelly Marie Tran. She’s portraying Rose Tico in the movie, and for Halloween, Tran and her friend spent a few hours making their own porg costumes before posting the following video clip on Instagram.

Based on how excited The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson was to run into a handmade porg costume at a recent Nerdoween party, I’m guessing he’s probably thrilled about Tran’s ensemble.

We first spotted this video at Bleeding Cool in a report that also highlighted a few other posts from Tran’s Instagram account. One of the posts that really stood out was Tran using her relative anonymity to go into the Disney Store and try on some of the Resistance costumes that are for sale there.

Tran also seems to be ridiculously excited about The Last Jedi toys, including the action figures of her character from the film. But that is completely understandable. Who among us wouldn’t be smiling when surrounded by new Star Wars toys?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit theaters on Friday, December 15, and we can’t wait to see Tran’s character in action.
