New Star Wars merchandise takes inspiration from McDonald’s Happy Meals

For Star Wars fans with a taste of nostalgia for a McDonald’s Happy Meal, Loungefly has created the perfect bag, and there’s a clothing line to go with it.

Bantha Burger McDonald’s inspired Happy Meal bag at Disney Springs for $95.

If Star Wars had a fast food chain on Tatooine, it only makes sense that they would sell bantha meat. If you’re not familiar with Star Wars (or it’s been awhile), banthas are the large creatures seen on Tatooine that almost look like Snuffaluffagus from Sesame Street. They tend to travel in herds, and can be seen being ridden by Tusken Raiders (and occasionally Boba Fett).

Obviously, the best way to wash down a Bantha Burger (especially after a long day under those twin suns) is with some blue milk, so Loungefly combined the two to make a happy meal-inspired bag. The bag resembles the cardboard containers that hold the famous McDonald’s Happy Meal. One side has a bantha face; on the other there is a picture of a Tatooine-based happy meal. Attached is a blue milk-themed change purse. If you were concerned about where the bantha meat came from, don’t worry. The bag states it’s “free range and locally sourced.”

Star Wars ‘Bantha Burger & Blue Milk’ clothes are also available

To complete the outfit, you can also find a bantha burger visor and T-shirt. However, if blue milk is more your thing, you can find a polo or a sweater with a little R2-D2 serving some fresh blue bantha milk.
