Mark Hamill Doesn’t Think The Green Milk From Star Wars: The Last Jedi Was That Bad


Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a film with many points of controversy, from the deliberately anticlimactic reveal of Rey’s parents, to the sudden and unexpected death of Snoke. But perhaps the most bizarre source of ire from the film’s detractors is that moment where Luke Skywalker drinks green milk from one of the thala-sirens on Ahch-To.

While most viewers probably didn’t give a second thought to this slightly amusing 5-second aside, there seems to be a section of the fanbase that remains deeply offended by this moment for reasons that aren’t entirely clear, especially since this isn’t even the first time that a Star Wars movie has shown Mark Hamill drink some gross-looking milky substance.

Back in A New Hope, Luke was seen enjoying a nice cup of blue milk, but when a fan asked Hamill on Twitter how it tasted, the star responded with no words, only a puke emoji. This exchange prompted another fan to ask Hamill whether he preferred the blue milk from A New Hope or the green milk from The Last Jedi, to which he responded: “green.”

Lately, Hamill has been all too happy reflect on his last two outings as Luke, recently tweeting a somewhat tongue-in-cheek explanation for the character’s death at the end of Rian Johnson’s film:

“THE FORCE KILLED LUKE. You have to acknowledge the irony in his fate.

Almost like an addict that kicked his habit cold-turkey, remained clean for decades, only to re-use just once & then, tragically, overdoses.#SadSkywalker #ForceFatality #JediJunkie”

Though Luke’s days of gulping down green milk in his solitary hideout came to an end with this fatal Force overdose, the character has been confirmed to return in Star Wars: Episode IX. But while Hamill’s Twitter account has been a place of open discussion on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the actor tweeted a message a few weeks ago that stated in unambiguous terms that he won’t be answering any questions on next year’s release.
