Tonight saw the premiere of Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion on the Disney Channel, and now we have the first installment of an official behind-the scenes look at all that went into the making of this introductory episode.

If you haven’t seen Spark of Rebellion yet, you might want to hold off – *SPOILERS* and all that, you know. 😉 Otherwise, feel free to proceed to the video below….

In the first installment of Rebels Recon, takes you inside Star Wars Rebels’ debut episode, “Spark of Rebellion,” with cast and crew interviews, coverage of the premiere’s L.A. screening, and an exclusive clip from next week’s episode.

At the premiere, Lucasfilm’s Andi Gutierrez spoke with the cast about the experience thus far. “It’s been overwhelmingly positive and wonderful,” Tiya Sircar, voice of Sabine said. Jaime King, actress and longtime fan, says her child was introduced to Star Wars “since he came out of the womb.” Dave Filoni, the show’s executive producer, revealed that he showed “Spark of Rebellion” to George Lucas last week – and he loved it.

In the offices in San Francisco, the show’s creators discuss its development and what they like most about the era of Star Wars Rebels. For Joel Aron, CG supervisor, it’s being chronologically close to A New Hope. Kilian Plunkett, art director, loves working with the Empire.
