That 20 year period when Luke is growing up. It’s not about Luke, but it’s about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over]."
Rick McCallum in an interview with IGN on his potential live-action Star Wars series, under the working title “Star Wars: Underworld.”
This is actually the first I’ve heard of this idea, but that premise makes it sound genuinely cool. Of course, lots of other factors would come into play (plot and characters, perhaps?), and the series might still be a few years away from production. Still, I think this is definitely news worth following.
