Rebels executive producer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly, "It's a very integrated process, there's real communication between all the filmmakers because we're all part of a larger timeline. There is absolutely communication and integration between the different stories. We are very aware of what they're doing in VII, and we also have to click into place with Episode IV."

The show will include "set-ups and Easter eggs" connected to Episodes IV, V and VI.

Kinberg also teased that we might see some brand new elements from Episode VII as well.

"There are characters, vehicles, imagery that are introduced in the show before we've ever seen them in the movies, possibly including VII," he added.

Star Wars: Episode VII is set to be released on 18 December, 2015 in the UK.
