If you've seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi, you wouldn't be alone in finding that Ahch-To milking scene one of the weirdest moments in the saga.

We mean, in a movie of unexpected twists and turns, we seriously did not expect to see Luke Skywalker milking the teet of a space alien and drinking the resulting green liquid with a look of glee.

Still, it is forever etched in our memories, however disgusting that milk looked.

Yet it turns out that the stuff actually does not taste that bad, at least according to creature designer Neal Scanlan.

In a new interview, he explained how they created that scene, where Luke takes milk from the Thala-Siren as Rey desperately follows him around the island.

According to Scanlan, the crew transported a giant animatronic puppet of the strange space cow/seal to the location. Talk about commitment!
