The current connection between The Force Awakens and the pre-trilogy is slight but its still there. Mentions of clones and Obi-Wans voice during Ray's force viewing. But was Anakin going to make a surprise appearance as described by 'The Art of the Force Awakens' in which concept artist Iain McCaig explaining that he could come back in the new movies in a surprising way.

"If we see Anakin Skywalker, because he does flow back and forth between Darth Vader and Anakin, let’s see him as a character with a dark and light side," McCaig reasoned. "The reason Luke is this whole new entity is because he was the first to acknowledge his own dark side — that it was not separate from him."

As it is, the only actors to appear in both the prequel trilogy and The Force Awakens are C-3PO, Chewbacca and Obi-Wan, who, as Entertainment Weekly earlier revealed, makes an un-credited return as the voice in one important scene. (Kenny Baker, who portrayed R2-D2 in earlier movies, is also credited as an "R2-D2 consultant" in the movie.)

Whether or not he will be in the new trilogy is yet too be seen, but do you want him in? Tell me below!
