What Blue Milk Tastes Like In Real Life

Reviews of the blue milk sold at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge aren’t glowing, but it’s nothing compared to what Mark Hamill endured when drinking the real stuff. In a 2019 tweet, the beloved actor praised the Galaxy’s Edge rendition and shared what it was like to guzzle the beverage while filming the original “Star Wars.” “Honestly though: the warm, oily, sickly-sweet milk dyed blue from the movie was gag-inducing.”

There is a reason for its bitter flavor. According to Hamill in a 2018 interview with RadioTimes, the original blue milk was a special liquid known as long-life milk. As its name implies, the beverage can withstand being left without refrigeration longer than traditional milk. Since many Tatooine scenes were shot in arid desert landscapes, keeping regular milk fresh during a long day of shooting would have been impractical.

Nevertheless, warm, runny milk in any scenario is no fun to drink, but Hamill wanted to prove himself. “But I said, ‘Look — if they gave me blue milk, you bet I’m going to drink it on camera, because what other chance am I going to get?,'” he told RadioTimes. “So there’s an indication that I’m an underrated actor — I gulped it and acted like I liked it without vomiting.” Fortunately, downing the green milk from “The Last Jedi” was far less grueling, with Hamill noting that he drank coconut water, which was later altered in post-production to appear green.
