There will be tender moments on Ahch-To involving R2-D2 in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” according to a new report. The scenes are featured in the first act of the film, so fans will get to enjoy the lighter scenes before the action picks up. The following article contains spoilers.

R2-D2 (Jimmy Vee) was last seen on planet Ahch-To. The droid, along with Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), had arrived on the island where Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) has been living for the past few years. The sequel will pick up from this point, with no time jump in between the movies.

Rey will begin training to be a Jedi. While there will be intense scenes of Luke instructing his new apprentice, there will also be tender moments involving Chewbacca and R2-D2. According to a report by Making Star Wars, one of the scenes involves the droid and the birds native to the planet, which are called porgs.

A lot has been said about these strange birds that may have also appeared in the animation TV series of the franchise. According to the report, the birds may be native to this planet and are sacred in some way. There are no concrete details about how significant these animals are to the plot, and if there is any connection between them and the First Jedi Temple, which is expected to be located on Ahch-To.

The birds are said to be cute. There will be a few baby porgs that have just hatched on the island, too. Both Chewbacca and R2-D2 will spend time with these feathered friends. A source has now revealed that there is a scene in the film in which one of these birds hops on the droid’s head. The scene has been described as “adorable.”
