There are Starwars characters that are missing from these mentions guys - the human characters from the Droids cartoon.
check the wiki info:
*In the fourth episode of the series "A Race to the Finish", the Droids end up at a race known as the "Boonta Race." A similar name was used for the podrace in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, which was known as the "Boonta Eve Classic."
*The swamp planet of Bogden is a planet visited by the droids in the series. In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Jango Fett says that he was "recruited by a man called Tyranus on one of the moons of Bogden." This locale was further expanded upon in the video game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.
*As confirmed on StarWars.com, Jann Tosh's wheel bike was the vehicle of choice for General Grievous in a chase with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Utapau.
*Toong from the series was mentioned in the prequels.
*In the episode "The Pirates of Tarnoonga", the pirate caves on Tarnoonga bear a striking resemblance to the sinkhole grottos of Utapau, seen in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
I'm sure that "somewhere" I read that we could at least expect to see them. I'm also pretty sure that its been said that there would NOT be any jedi. That doesn't rule out SITH or in-betweeners though
