A Porg is a small, flat-muzzled avian that likes to flock about the rocks and roosts in cliffs of secluded areas. In the latest set of sculptural bookends from Gentle Giant Ltd., we see two adorable, inquisitive Porgs down in the lowlands of the hidden island of Ahch-To. They have happened upon Luke Skywalker’s recently discarded lightsaber and do not know what to make of it. These two innocent Porgs are clueless that they are residing in an unknown region of the galaxy where the Jedi Order was founded, they just know there is something shiny there that wasn’t there before. They have no idea they are at the crossroads with the last of the Jedi Knights…
Crafted using only the highest quality Polystone, each Porg bookend is weighted to grip and keep your books upright and in pristine condition. The Star Wars: The Last Jedi Porg Bookends are perfect for holding comics, graphic novels, books, DVDs, video games or ancient, discarded Jedi texts. Every feather, every rock and every glassy, soulful eye has been painstakingly sculpted by the artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. Each bookend comes with an optional bookend extender for holding taller items. Each limited-edition hand-painted bookend set comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.

Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise, centered on a film series created by George Lucas. It depicts the adventures of various characters “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.”
The first film in the series, Star Wars (later subtitled Episode IV: A New Hope), was released on May 25, 1977 by 20th Century Fox and became a worldwide pop culturephenomenon. It was followed by the similarly successful sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983); these three films constitute the original Star Wars trilogy. A prequel trilogy was later released between 1999 and 2005, which received a more mixed reaction from critics and fans, compared to the original trilogy. All six films were nominated for or won Academy Awards, and were commercial successes, with a combined box office revenue of $4.38 billion, making Star Wars the fifth-highest-grossing film series. The series has spawned an extensive media franchise—the Star Wars expanded universe—including books, television series, computer and video games, and comic books, resulting in significant development of the series’s fictional universe. Star Wars also holds a Guinness World Records title for the “Most successful film merchandising franchise.” In 2012, the total value of the Star Wars franchise was estimated at USD $30.7 billion, including box-office receipts as well as profits from their video games and DVD sales.
In 2012, The Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm for $4.06 billion and announced three new Star Wars films; the first film of that trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was released on December 18, 2015. 20th Century Fox retains the physical distribution rights to the first two Star Wars trilogies, owning permanent rights for the original 1977 film and holding the rights to Episodes I–III, V and VI until May 2020. The Walt Disney Studios owns digital distribution rights to all the Star Wars films, excluding A New Hope.
