Star Wars producer Rick McCallum tells SciFi.com that the Star Wars TV series on the horizon will take place between Episode III and IV. Could this be why Boba Fett wasn't old enough for an appearance in Revenge of the Sith?
McCallum also denied rumors that the new series would focus on members of the Skywalker family, but repeated that the show will take place in the timeframe between Episode III and IV. "All-new characters," he added. "That missing 20-year period when Luke is growing up. … Think bounty hunter. That's all I can tell you. There's nobody else that you'll know [in it]. At the moment. You know, it's still [in] really, really early stages. He hasn't really sat down to think about which direction [he's going]."
