Star Wars Rebels is going to premiere on the Disney Channel on October 3rd, with subsequent episodes starting October 13th. There were rumors whether or not the animated series will connect with the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film. Now Simon Kinberg, who’s the Star Wars Rebels executive producer and Star Wars: Episode VII consultant, talks about what we can expect with the movie and show connection.

“It’s a very integrated process, there’s real communication between all the filmmakers because we’re all part of a larger timeline,” Kinberg told EW. “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.”

It looks like Rebels is going to explain some things in the original, prequel and upcoming films.

“There are characters, vehicles, imagery that are introduced in the show before we’ve ever seen them in the movies, possibly including VII,” Kinberg teased.

Star Wars Rebels will premiere on Friday, October 3, at 9pm ET/PT on Disney Channels and will continue on Disney XD starting Monday, October 13 at 9pm ET/PT.
