Rebels Recon #11: Inside “Vision of Hope”

Vision of Hope - Ezra Wakes Up ConceptAfter the Disney XD debut of Star Wars Rebels “Vision of Hope”, StarWars.com has posted an episode guide chock full of information about the episode.

First off, we have Rebels Recon #11: Inside “Vision of Hope”


In Rebels Recon #11, StarWars.com goes behind the scenes of the Star Wars Rebels episode “Visions of Hope” – and features a preview of next week’s installment, “Call to Action.”

“Visions of Hope” finds Ezra growing stronger with the Force. His lightsaber skills have improved, and during a training session, sees a vision through the Force. In it, he sees Gall Trayvis, who says he knew Ezra’s parents. Ezra interprets his vision literally, and as a result, leads his friends into a trap. They manage to escape, and Ezra learns to be more cautious.

This week, the Recon team talks Lucasfilm’s Joel Aron and Chris Voy about lighting in Star Wars Rebels. “Lighting is something that needs to be thought of…from the very beginning to the very end of it,” says CG supervisor Joel Aron. “Because we as humans react to shapes.” Chris Voy, lighting concept artist, says that they look at storyboards to uncover places where lighting and color can play up emotional moments. “There’s no accidental lighting,” Aron adds.

In this week’s deep dive, Lucasfilm’s Andi Gutierrez speaks with the Star Wars Rebels team about Gall Trayvis — senator turned Imperial. “When the idea of the character came together,” the Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo says, “that dynamic was in place.” Executive producer Dave Filoni says that it worked from a character perspective, too, as Ezra would be looking for a parental figure. He also kept the cast in the dark about Trayvis’ true nature, as voice actress Vanessa Marshall reveals that she had no clue that the senator would lay a trap for the team.

For this week’s fan question, Brian asks is “Idiot’s Array” takes place before or after Lando lost the Millennium Falcon to Han…
