STAR WARS Princess Leia Corn Maze Honors Carrie Fisher

STAR WARS Princess Leia Corn Maze Honors Carrie Fisher

Since her passing in 2016, Carrie Fisher has been honored in myriad ways. A new tribute to her has taken shape in Evansville, Indiana in the form of a corn maze depicting Fisher’s iconic Star Wars character, Leia Organa. We learned via the Evansville Courier & Press that the space princess labyrinth has claimed a field at Goebel Farms for the fall season.

Jeremy Goebel of Goebel Farms was responsible for creating the design for the maze, and he’s no stranger to crafting labyrinths with nerdy themes. He’s had the role of Maize Maze Designer (I’m making up that title) for the farm for 16 years and made winding paths depicting Darth Vader, The Force Awakens, and the USS Enterprise from Star Trek among others. He’s a lifelong Star Wars fan and wanted to make something that celebrated Fisher and Princess Leia.

As you’d imagine, the planning process takes time. Goebel came up with the plan in February. Once he loaded the Photoshop made maze into a tractor’s computer, the actual planting only took about 40 minutes. The Leia corn maze is open to the public for the first time today, Saturday, September 9, and will remain open for weekends throughout autumn.

Will you be making the trek to Goebel Farms to navigate this maze? Let us know in the comments.
