Perhaps the most unusual new additions to the "Star Wars" family are the caretakers, a species of nun-like creatures that care for the Jedi temple on the planet of Ahch-To.

"Personality-wise, I wanted the Caretakers to feel like nuns – to feel disapproving," Johnson explained. "But I didn’t say ‘Make them fish people’. That’s just the direction they ended up going in."

According to designer Lunt Davies, the director did give one hint as to what the caretakers should look like: puffin people.
