Steven Melching is a television writer whose work includes numerous episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, Star Wars Rebels television series, and Star Wars Resistance television series. He has also written thousands of lines of dialogue for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes video games, as well as several issues of Dark Horse Comic’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars comic book series.
Mr. Melching’s Hollywood lineage dates back to his great-grandfather’s assistance in building the enormous King Kong hand that would eventually grasp Fay Wray in the 1933 film classic. Seeing 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope as a 9-year-old in a Honolulu theater only reinforced his path. Though an established top writer for animation, Mr. Melching gained the attention of the Star Wars universe with his work on TROOPS, the popular Internet parody that melds Star Wars with TV’s Cops. He is an Emmy and Writers Guild Award-nominated writer who also contributed to such animated series as The Batman, X-Men, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Transformers Prime, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
