With the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi this week, Alamo Drafthouse released its outer space-themed food and drink menu in honor of the movie occasion, as per its annual tradition.

On deck is “lava planet popcorn,” with spicy sun-dried tomato powder, a jalapeno/wasabi/lime seasoning, and butter. Then there are the “roasted Nerf strips,” which are actually chile-marinated and roasted beef skewers served with turmeric peanuts. Read on for the full menu options below. It’ll appear on die-cut BB-8 and BB-9E menus (the theater encourages patrons to take ‘em home).

Last year's menu for Star Wars prequel Rogue One took on a tropical theme inspired by the beachy Scarif planet at the end of the film. Nerf strips appeared on the menu for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015, in the form of orange-garlic-marinated beef skewers, served with pesto sauce.

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi premieres in theaters on Friday, December 15, 2017, though Austin-area Alamo Drafthouses are hosting advanced premiere screenings on Thursday, December 14.
