Spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

Porg! It's what's for... dinner?

We jest, of course. While Chewbacca is seen feasting on one of those little cuddly avian creatures dotting the island on Ahch-To where Luke is hiding out in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he clearly felt guilty about it as evidenced by the fact that he later befriends a Porg and takes him aboard the Millennium Falcon in the franchise's newest adventure.

Not so with Disney, whose theme parks have decided to put Porgs back on the menu.

In an online video demonstration released yesterday by Disney Parks, host Mike Kravanis walks fans through how to create your own Porg Bento Box. But don't worry, young Padewans, it's all in good fun as Chef Mike prepares his Porg using all-vegetarian ingredients.

There's a big rice ball sans Porg meat in the shape of the chubby alien bird, sushi rice molded with a cookie cutter into the Porgs' donut-shaped eyes and wings, nori, or edible seaweed sheets, for his mouth, and slices of black olives for the puffin's pupils. 

Put it all together with a sprinkle of ground black sesames a brush of soy sauce for the head and three-toed Porg feet made out of carrots, and you get Oscar Isaac's favorite meal! (you did know the Star Wars star can't stop "talking about Porg recipes," didn't you?).

Alas, Isaac and Wookies the universe over might be disappointed to learn Kravanis doesn't stuff his Porg Bento Box, but rather pairs it with a delicious curry  – we'll assume for kids' sake.

Of course, leave it to Disney's Hollywood Studios to give Star Wars fans tips on making Porg sushi to go with their other character-driven foods –from Dark Side Chicken and Waffles and a Royal Guard Burger to Lightsaber Churros and Yoda and Darth Vader Cupcakes.

Just be careful not to eat anything from the Spice Mines of Kessel – that stuff will blow you up faster than the Death Star!
