Bryan Young is an American blogger, author and filmmaker.


At age 18, Young received local press coverage when he became the first person in the city of Provo, Utah, to get in line for the opening of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.[1] Three years later, he repeated the stunt, camping out at the cinema three weeks before the opening of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.[2]

Young was inducted as an honorary member of the 501st Legion.[3]


Young co-directed two feature films, Missy and The Fleapit Three, and a feature-length documentary, The Misbehavers.[citation needed] He collaborated with director and friend Steven Greenstreet on a pair of documentaries, serving as assistant director for This Divided State and producing Killer at Large.[4]

His short film 3 1/2 Stars won Best Writing at the Helper Film Festival.[citation needed]


In collaboration with Elias Pate and Derek Hunter, Young contributed to the comic book series Pirate Club, released quarterly by Slave Labor Graphics.[5]

His self-published novels Lost at the Con, Operation Montauk, Serpent's Head, and The Aeronaut received positive reviews.[6][7][8][9][10]

He has freelanced for Star Wars Insider,[11] the official Star Wars blog,[12] HuffPost,[13] Salt Lake City Weekly,[14] and "geek news and reviews" blog Big Shiny Robot!, which he co-founded.[citation needed]
