"Rucklin! Where's my bantha milk?"
Hype Fazon, to Jace Rucklin[2]

Blue milk,[17] also known as Bantha milk,[18] was a rich blue-colored milk produced by female banthas. Sentients drank it,[16] and also used it in bantha butter,[11] blue bantha buttermilk biscuits,[13] blue-milk cheese,[14] blue milk custard, ice cream, and yogurt.[16] It was notably available on Outer Rim planets such as Batuu,[1] Lah'mu,[3] Lothal,[4] and Tatooine.[6] Cid's Parlor on Ord Mantell served a similar beverage that was alcoholic called Dark Blue Milk.[19]

During a lightsaber training session, the young Ezra Bridger had to protect himself as the astromech droid Chopper kept lobbing cartons of blue milk at him.[17] Luke Skywalker drank blue milk while he discussed the new droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO, with his aunt and uncle.[6]

Two establishments in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, served blue milk or blue milk-based concoctions; Milk Stand sold blue milk and an alcoholic Blue Milk Cooler,[15] while Oga's Cantina served the non-alcoholic Blue Bantha.[12]

Behind the scenes[]


An advertisement for blue milk. The Aurebesh text translates as "Blue milk" : "At markets everywhere".

Blue milk first appeared in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the first installment in the original trilogy of Star Wars.[6] Initially, one scene was to have featured Beru Lars, played by Shelagh Fraser, pouring blue milk into a jug in her kitchen. That footage, however, was left on the cutting room floor.[20]

Mark Hamill stated the blue milk was "life-long milk" with "additives – they put blue food coloring in it – and it was really ghastly. Oily and sweet and euch! Triggered your gag reflex. 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?' So there's an indication that I'm an underrated actor – I gulped it and acted like I liked it without vomiting."[21]

The anthology novel From a Certain Point of View, celebrating the 40th anniversary of A New Hope, was first teased on social media on April 6, 2017, using the hashtag #OperationBlueMilk.[22]

The real-world Milk Stand found at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge serves "blue milk," which is actually a frozen plant-based blend of coconut and rice milks that the menu describes as having "alluring fruity characteristics." The Disney's Hollywood Studios location additionally serves an alcoholic Blue Milk Cooler.[15] The real-world Oga's Cantina at both parks serves Blue Bantha, a non-alcoholic cocktail with a cookie.[12]

The 2020 non-canon video game expansion The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu includes blue milk as a drink sold to the player's Sims at the Milk Stand vendor in the Black Spire Outpost neighborhood. In the home neighborhood, it can be purchased as a quick meal from refrigerators.[23]
