Daisy Ridley Talks Baby Yoda on The Tonight Show
Daisy Ridley Also Thinks Baby Yoda Is the Cutest Thing Ever: "Not a Big Fan of the Porgs"
In the ongoing debate over the cutest Star Wars creature, Daisy Ridley is right. During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, the star of the forthcoming Rise of Skywalker installment was asked to choose between the squeaky puffin-like Porg first introduced in The Last Jedi and the ubiquitous breakout star of The Mandalorian: Baby Yoda. Without hesitation, Ridley chose the latter.
"Look, I'm not a big fan of the Porgs," she told host Jimmy Fallon. Ridley elaborated, "We worked for six months on The Last Jedi, and in every interview: 'What about the Porgs?'" She added, "The Porgs were there for a day! I was there every day for six months. We worked hard." Watch the crucial exchange above, then check out Ridley's rap recapping all eight Star Wars films.
