A crowd-surfing Stormtrooper spotted at the end of “Return of the Jedi,” can be seen amongst celebrations of the toppling of the Emperor’s Palpatine Statue, but only for a brief second.
This Stormtrooper is not a willing crowd-surfer. It is being tossed around by the enemy of his defeated cause.
The Origin of Blue Milk
In “Return of the Jedi” the source of Luke Skywalker's mysterious blue milk, although sometimes green, is revealed. Since, obviously, cows do not live on any planets of the Star Wars galaxy, the milk comes from a mammalian species that happen to populate Tatooine and other planets.
The creatures are known as Bantha. It becomes clear that the milk comes from these beasts as Skywalker is serving himself a cup of it by tapping a Bantha’s udder in “The Last Jedi.”
The Blue Milk Thing
Luke Skywalker first drank blue milk in the 1977 “Star Wars: A New Hope.” It is one of those things Star Wars fans ogle over, so much so, that Disneyland sells it at the Star Wars theme park in California. Fans are drawn to it because the peculiar milk-like beverage was a mystery that begged many questions. Especially, where does it come from?
Answers have petered out slowly since Luke’s first sip. In reality, it is regular milk with blue food coloring because how could dairy milk exist on Tatooine? There are no cows.
The Significance of the Planet Wobani
Wobani is found in the Galactic Empire. It was an Imperial prison camp that first shows up on “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (2016). In that movie, Jyn Erso was freed from Wobani by the Rebel Alliance.
The cloud-shrouded planet initially appeared in the 2015 video game, “Star Wars Battlefront.” But what is most intriguing is the planet’s name. It is an anagram of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Most People Don’t Know About These Royal Stormtroopers
But that may have something to do with the fact that the scene ended up on the cutting room floor. It’s a pity, too, because it was a high point in the lives of these two British royals. Prince Harry and Prince William secretly visited Pinewood Studios during the filming of “The Last Jedi.”
Both huge fans of the Force, the starstruck boys, unluckily for them, are both over six feet. Stormtroopers are not that tall. The cut appears on the deleted scenes section of “Last Jedi” on Blu-ray.
