Dan Brooks is the senior writer and editor of StarWars.com, as well as a writer and producer of various digital series including The StarWars.com 10 and Our Star Wars Stories. A lifelong fan of a galaxy far, far away, one of his crowning achievements is beating Super Empire Strikes Back on SNES. (It was really hard.) Dan loves Star Wars, good rock 'n' roll, bad movies, comics, the outdoors, video games, and the New York Jets, Rangers, and Yankees.
First Star Wars MemoryMy father coming home from a business trip -- maybe in 1984 -- with a Darth Vader action figure for me. I can still remember how amazed I was.
Favorite FilmThe Empire Strikes Back
Favorite CharacterLuke Skywalker
Favorite SceneLuke taking down all of Jabba's henchmen in the sarlacc sequence from Return of the Jedi. The action, energy, and music are just about perfect.
