Blue milk, also known as Bantha milk, was a rich blue-colored milk produced by female banthas. Sentients drank it, and also used it in ice cream, butter and yogurt. It was notably available on Outer Rim planets such as Tatooine Lothal, and Lah'mu. During a lightsaber training session, the young Ezra Bridger had to protect himself as the astromech droid Chopper kept lobbing jugs of blue milk at him. Blue milk was also a fundamental ingredient in blue milk custard.
Behind the scenesEdit
Blue milk first appeared in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the first installment in the original trilogy of Star Wars. Initially, there was a scene in which Beru Lars, played by Shelagh Fraser, was seen pouring blue milk into a jug in her kitchen. That footage, however, was left on the cutting room's floor.
Mark Hamill stated the blue milk was "life-long milk" with "additives – they put blue food colouring 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."
