Also known as Vulptices, crystal foxes not only look amazing with that sparkly pointy ‘fur’ of theirs, but they are also smart and play a pivotal role in saving the Resistance on planet Crait in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It is believed that crystalline foxes got their stylish look from eating some of the planet’s surface – at least that’s what Neal Scanlan says, the creature effects guy behind the critters of the new Star Wars.
Porgs are among the most controversial creatures in the Star Wars universe. Many Ewok haters changed their focus on the new creatures, dubbing them ‘unnecessary attention-grabbers’ created with a sole purpose to sell toys. Well, you know what? We couldn’t care less! If you’ve seen the movie, you know that porgs are unbearably cute. And how can something that makes you laugh so hard be a bad thing? They look adorbs with Chewie and they look even cuter in their nests with little baby porglets.
Next time you watch Revenge of the Sith, pay a close attention to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s ride on the Utapau planet. Varactyls are truly amazing creatures that have no fear whatsoever and come with a bunch of handy features like super strength and loyalty. They have bird-like feather-covered heads, but rock a reptilian body that allows them to climb walls and effortlessly run through the roughest terrains imaginable.
Star Wars is good with showing off cuties, but its monsters are equally spectacular. We believe Acklay is among the most horrifying monsters in the Star Wars universe. He has it all – the appalling screech, the vicious look, and the speed worthy of an alpha predator that he is. Obi-Wan Kenobi had to battle the creature in Attack of the Clones and was helpless against it until he got his light saber back. And no wonder – Acklay’s skin is as hard as bone and he has no pain receptors whatsoever!
