I've seen this speculated about elsewhere, but Vader's "You should not have come back." line to Obi-wan in ANH could be read different ways, and one of them is that he and Obi-wan had an encounter (or more than one) in between the end of ROTS and ANH. The phrasing could even be read as Obi-wan has encountered Vader on the first Death Star before.
 


It could easily be set in a time in which Luke is still a non-speaking role.

I thought it was already said the series would be taking place about halfway between prequel and original trilogy, or at least some of it is, so about when Luke is 8-10 years old. This is also several years before the events in Rebels, so unlikely there will be a crossover there. Though maybe it will cover that time too and that is when they will introduce a live-action Ezra Bridger and we get to see the live-action version of the final fight between Obi-Wan and Maul.

I had forgotten about Maul - it's almost guaranteed we'll see him in this, isn't it? I mean, why wouldn't they go there?

I think this is a common expectation. Kenobi seems to slot in at 9-8 BBY, between Solo and Rebels, and Maul is in both of those.

However, Ventress should be dead at that point.

Right. Especially because they cannot be sure everyone watched the animated Clone Wars series. The only Anakin they should reliably lean on is Ep 1-3, and maybe they want/need stuff that wasn't on screen in those films.
Nah, they'll reference Clone Wars, quite nearly guaranteed. They'll just do it in a way where the scene and episode will make sense regardless of whether you have seen what is being referenced, just like the OT references all sorts of history without explanation.

So, do we have to go into the difference between "reference" and "lean on"?

Because Rebels fairly solidly established that Maul had been searching fruitlessly for Obi-Wan for a long time before his appearance in that show.

10 BBY Maul was leading one of the most powerful crime syndicates in the galaxy. There is nothing to suggest he knew, or cared, Kenobi was still alive.

4 BBY he is a washed up old man grubbing around in the ruins of Malachor, obsessed with vengeance against Obi Wan Kenobi.

Something must have happened in between.

Depends if that one book they will treat as canon though in the comics she fled into the Outer Rim after narrowly surviving a mission I think involved other members of the Forgotten (former Jedi who left the order like Dooku, but Dooku wasn't part of this).
Edit: By this point most of her Nightsister colleagues were dead, but was this book set after Maul escaped after he was caught by Sidious at the end of the Clone Wars season 5?
Its just that if Maul's mother might have saved Ventriss and they only thought she was dead if the book was set before Sidious managed to defeat her once and for all?

Dark Disciple is still listed as canon.
