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!
