If Luke Skywalker's green milk drink in Star Wars: The Last Jedi made you thirsty, you can try it for yourself at the Disney Parks' upcoming attraction Galaxy's Edge - as well as the classic blue milk from previous Star Wars movies. According to canon, blue milk is provided by female Banthas, while the green milk is harvested from an alien called the Thala-Siren that's native to Luke's retirement home planet of Ahch-To.
First announced back in summer 2017, Galaxy's Edge is a Star Wars themed addition to Disney's theme parks that will debut at Florida's Walt Disney World and California's Disneyland this year. One of its main attractions is Star Wars: Resistance, which aims to put visitors at the center of the action as they fight for the galaxy's freedom alongside Rey, Poe, and Finn. Taking down the First Order is thirsty work, however, so the Resistance attraction also includes an area called Black Spire Outpost where guests can purchase their own glass of delicious blue (or green) milk.
EW's guide to the food options at Galaxy's Edge says that you can find the milk cart just opposite a TIE Echelon fighter in Black Spire Outpost, a First Order-controlled area of Star Wars: Resistance. Imagineering creative executive Scott Trowbridge clarified that the drink isn't actually milk, because "if you’re walking around Florida in the middle of August, the last thing you want is a huge glass of milk." Instead it's a "plant-based dairy — essentially rice milk" that is served "soft-frozen, like a milkshake." The good news is that this means even the lactose intolerant can drink it. Here's what it looks like:
Blue milk was first seen being drunk by Like in A New Hope as part of a healthy Tatooine diet, while green milk was introduced in Star Wars: The Last Jedi in a truly gross scene where Luke milks a Thala-Siren and then messily slurps the fresh milk. The scene was one of many moments in The Last Jedi that some fans objected to, but it takes place when Luke is trying to dissuade Rey from staying on Ahch-To - so if it's off-putting, it's because it's meant to be.
Star Wars: Resistance's version of blue milk is described as tasting like a smoothie, with berry and melon flavoring, while the green milk has a lemon and citrus flavor. Blue milk will also be served at the restaurant Oga's Cantina, where it "comes garnished with a sugar cookie, topped with rice crisp and a Bantha horn made out of frosting." Oga's Cantina will be one of the first establishments in Disney Parks to serve alcohol, but the "Blue Bantha" is non-alcoholic.
Blue/green milk is the beverage of choice for one of the most powerful Jedi in history - but do you dare to try it for yourself?
