No visit to Galaxy's Edge would be complete without a tall glass of Blue Milk and intergalactic travelers heading to Disneyland's new themed land this summer will be able to choose between three varieties of the signature "Star Wars" drink.

The Milk Stand will offer two flavors - Blue Milk and Green Milk - in the Black Spire Outpost village, where the new land will be set in the "Star Wars" universe. Nearby, Oga's Cantina will offer a third take on the beverage with a Blue Bantha milk and cookies combo.

The trio of "Star Wars" drinks will be sold at the 14-acre Galaxy's Edge lands now under construction at Disneyland in Anaheim and Disney's Hollywood Studios near Orlando, Florida.

Disney World food and beverage concept development director Brian Koziol unveiled Blue Milk, Green Milk and the Blue Bantha during a media event at Disneyland.

Disney's culinary team was still tinkering with the concoction during the media event. Reporters were not allowed to taste the beverages during a sample menu demonstration of new foods and drinks coming to Galaxy's Edge.

"Our delivery has not arrived just yet," Koziol said.

Koziol described the drinks are "flavorful and delicious."

Ever since the original 1977 "Star Wars" movie, fans have wondered the same thing: What does Blue Milk taste like?

The decades-old question presented both a challenge and an opportunity for Disney's culinary team. Koziol and his crew has spent years trying to devise a tasty answer.

The Disney culinary team traveled to Lucasfilm's Northern California offices in October 2015 looking for help on the ingredients, flavors and inspiration for Blue Milk.

"They really said, "You get to write a story,'" Koziol said.

The result was a non-dairy, plant-based milk that will be similar to a soy, almond, coconut or rice milk.

"It's not actually milk," said Scott Trowbridge, the Walt Disney Imagineering creative executive overseeing the Galaxy's Edge project. "If you're walking around Florida in the middle of August, the last thing you want is a heated glass of milk. It's refreshing, delicious and great."

Milk Stand

Storytelling is key in any Disney project and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is no exception. Every shop, restaurant and food stand in Black Spire Outpost will have an extensive backstory and proprietor from the "Star Wars" universe.

The best-known drink in the "Star Wars" galaxy will be served in Black Spire Outpost by the Bubo Wamba family farm. The Milk Stand will be located in a First Order-controlled sector of the village across from a docked TIE fighter. The menacing starship will serve as the marquee entrance to the First Order Cargo gift shop, run by the 709 Legion known as the Red Fury.

The Milk Stand will serve both the Blue Milk first seen in the original "Star Wars" movie and the Green Milk introduced in "The Last Jedi." Luke Skywalker drank Blue Milk during a meal at his family's moisture farm on Tatooine. Luke milked a sea creature known as a Thala-Siren to get Green Milk while on Ahch-To.

The Blue Milk and Green Milk sold at the Milk Stand will be a frozen-style beverage.

"It's going to have a substance, texture wise, like a smoothie," Koziol said. "Maybe even almost like a milkshake."

Blue Milk will have berry and melon flavors.

"There's essences of some berry combinations that can come through there," Koziol said. "A lot more melony types of fruits."

Green Milk will have tropical and citrus flavors.

"You can think of orange blossom, a little tangerine maybe or citrus elements," Koziol said. "A little more tropical in its essence."

According to the Galaxy's Edge backstory, the Black Spire Outpost village will be set on the planet of Batuu, located on the outer rim of the "Star Wars" galaxy.

The architecture of Black Spire Outpost was inspired by the bustling marketplaces of Istanbul, Turkey and Marrakesh, Morocco. Circular buildings with domed roofs will dot the village. Outpost buildings will be built into towering spires of petrified trees that rise 135 feet in the air.

Concept art of the Milk Stand shows an outdoor walk-up counter under a tattered red and gold canopy with hanging glass containers filled with Blue Milk. Next to the courtyard stand is a moisture vaporator like the ones used on Tatooine by moisture farmers in the original 1977 "Star Wars" movie. A R-series astromech droid stands next to the moisture vaporator. A switchback queue amid a row of milk cans offers the only hint you're in a theme park.

Oga's Cantina

Around the corner from the Milk Stand, Oga's Cantina will serve a non-alcoholic cocktail based on the Blue Milk recipe. Rather than a smoothie or milkshake, the Blue Bantha will be a non-dairy plant-based chilled milk.

The milk and cookies menu item at Oga's Cantina will include a Blue Bantha cocktail served with a Bantha cookie chaser. A Rice Krispie treat cookie with a fondant Bantha horn is served on top of the glass.

According to the cantina's backstory, proprietor Oga Garra is also the local crime boss of Black Spire Outpost who controls the underworld on the "Star Wars" planet of Batuu. Visitors bellying up to the spaceport cantina bar will be able to choose from an alcoholic drink menu that includes a Jedi Mind Trick cocktail, Bad Motivator IPA beer and Imperial Red wine. In addition to the Blue Bantha, the lineup of non-alcoholic cantina cocktail "potations" includes a Jabba Juice and Carbon Freeze.

Disney has not yet released prices for the three varieties of Blue Milk sold in Galaxy's Edge. The Disneyland website says the Blue Milk and Green Milk sold at the Milk Stand will cost less than $15. No annual passholder discounts will be offered on Milk Stand sales.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens May 31 at Disneyland and Aug. 29 at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
