Dan Brooks is the senior writer and editor of StarWars.com. He writes breaking news, behind-the-scenes features, Star Wars creator interviews, and copy for StarWars.com and Lucasfilm. He also writes video scripts, including the popular StarWars.com 10 YouTube series, the “Say No to May the 4th” attack ad parody, Yoda’s ESPN interview with Max Kellerman, and more. 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, the outdoors, video games, and the New York Jets, Rangers, and Yankees. Feel free to chat with him about any of these things in real life or on Twitter.
First Star Wars MemoryMy father coming home from a business trip -- maybe in 1984 -- with a Darth Vader action figure for me.
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.
