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.
I think the Thala-siren scene on Ahch-To was hilarious and I won’t apologize for it pic.twitter.com/tQDjwvHI5d- Luke Davis (@AlphaPlank77) December 31, 2017
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!
The most glamorous shot of Thala-Siren in the entire movie is when it's framed from Luke's point of view. He sees her as a princess, as the most beautiful creature in the entire galaxy. He's so damm in love with her. The framing says it all. pic.twitter.com/dSyWkEyVh3- ]]>🗯
