For basically the entire month of March, Caitlin and I decided to join each other’s pods and quarantine together after a lot of loneliness. Missing Disney Parks and trying to live life like we’re on vacation, we decided to make a couple of variations of at-home versions of everyone’s favorite Batuu drinks: Blue and Green Milk. We were so excited to find these spacey glasses at a local thrift store – they remind us of Dryden’s yacht in Solo!
Some notes: Both of these are delicious (even without the alcohol), but both are not a one-to-one recreation of the Galaxy’s Edge version – if you have a favorite recipe that comes close to the Parks version, let us know! The green milk version is an adaptation of this version a listener sent us. We decided to use oat milk since, one, we love oat milk and, two, the Batuu version is a vegan and used rice milk; oat milk allows it to be creamy.
Let us know if you make these Galaxy’s Edge-inspired drinks!
Charlotte & Caitlin discuss the years-long relationship between Disney Parks and Star Wars. In part one, they talk about the history of Star Tours and Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. In part two, they reminisce on Star Wars Weekends in Walt Disney World. In part three, they speculate about what’s the come for Galaxy’s Edge and beyond.
Caitlin and Charlotte return for a special episode breaking down what we got from the D23 Expo in Anaheim! First, we go shot-for-shot looking at the behind the scenes sizzle reel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Then, we talk the new red-themed posters. What do they mean? Why are Rey and Kylo turned away from Luke? Finally, we get really excited over Walt Disney World’s and Disneyland’s upcoming Star Wars themed land: Galaxy’s Edge. All that and more on this special edition of Skytalkers: This Galactic Life!
Friend of Skytalkers Brittany Barnim returns to skytalkers.com to generously let us share her beautiful photos from Disney’s Hollywood Studios! She is a super talented photographer and we love seeing her photos. Below is her report from Walt Disney World.
Fireworks are one of those little things in life that make you truly believe in magic and when visiting any one of the Disney Parks. They tend to represent a goodbye of sorts: sometimes to a long-awaited vacation or simply the closing chapter of a long day. In any case, I firmly believe there is no better way to end a sweltering day plagued by humidity and long lines than with the most gorgeous fireworks display I’ve ever witnessed, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. Of course, I am a tiny bit biased in this assertion… More photos from Britt after the jump… Continue reading “Photo Report: Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular in Walt Disney World”→
