Star Wars: Chewbacca's Porg Co-Pilot in The Last Jedi Now has a Name

The porgs in Star Wars: The Last Jedi may have been feathery little distractions for anyone who wanted to focus on the main storyline. However, one particular porg has made history by becoming the first porg to be given a name suggested by a fan.

First, let's identify the porg in this story. The porg being referenced here is the one who somehow served as Chewbacca's co-pilot on the trip back from Ahch-To. The adorable critter has been identified in the story Ghosts of Kashykk from the new comic book Star Wars Adventures #27.

Terbus seems like a cool name for a porg but who came up with it in the first place? That's when the story gets a little more awesome. The honor belongs to the father and son tandem behind Tatooine Sons: A Star Wars Podcast.

During an interview with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, they had asked about the name of the porg hanging out with Chewie. Johnson simply asked what they thought would be the porg's name and the boy answered, "Maybe Terbus." Johnson then addressed Pablo Hidalgo of Lucasfilm's Story Group to make it happen.

It's a cool story indeed and we're glad that Terbus is officially canon. This confirms that the creative minds behind Star Wars are open to fresh ideas from their fans.

It's still unclear if we'll be seeing more porgs getting names in the future. For now, you can check out Terbus in Star Wars Adventures #27, which is currently available in all your favorite comic book stores.
