I remain sceptical. The Force Awakens was also very well received by critics, but was actually pretty horrendous.
There has only really been two good Star Wars movies ever. The first one is of course the best, then Empire Strikes Back, both still have their issues and are nowhere near as good as they are made out to be, but at least somewhat enjoyable.
But it is a franchise that has this fanatical following that will watch whatever crap that gets released with the name Star Wars on it.
