It’s BB-8 and Chewbacca vs. a Porg in three new Star Wars animated shorts

Contributed by

Disney has rolled out a trio of new, animated Star Wars shorts — and our favorite one has a Porg stowing away on the Millennium Falcon. But don’t worry, Chewie and BB-8 are on the job.

The Porgs are poised to be a breakout favorite when Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens this December, and Disney is leveraging that adorableness perfectly in animated form. The new short comes in addition to the earlier short featuring BB-8’s meeting with his evil doppelgänger BB-9E, plus yet another short that finds R2-D2 kicking a whole lot of butt when challenged by larger droids. Lesson being: Don’t mess with Artoo.

Coming off the high (and depleted bank accounts) of Force Friday II, these are a great way to kick off the week. Between these, and that stellar new Star Wars Rebels trailer, there’s at least a few new goodies to fill out the doldrums.

Check out all the shorts below and let us know what you think:
