YORK, England (Reuters) - A farmer in northern England has marked the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars films by creating a maze in the shape of some of the franchise’s most notable characters.
When viewed from above, Tom Pearcy’s maze in York features depictions of the Death Star as well as characters Darth Vader, C-3PO, Han Solo and Chewbacca.
He said he could not resist creating a Star Wars design given the anniversary and Harrison Ford’s 75th birthday on July 13, but expressed concerns for the galaxy’s safety.
“We’ve also got the world’s biggest ever Death Star built in the maze, so we are hoping it’s not going to destroy anything in the next couple of months”, he told Reuters.
York Maze, open in the summer and at Halloween, covers approximately 15 acres (6 hectares) and has featured designs from Star Trek, James Bond and Harry Potter in the past.
