The Last Jedi backlash is going to hit this film hard, which is a shame as I do think it'll be more interesting than the last. The more capable Abrams is back at the helm and if nothing else, it'll just be interesting to see how things wrap up. I've heard Red Letter Media toss out their strange theory they seem pretty adamant about of a possible "time travel" plot which would be VERY interesting indeed XD.
Honestly I'm more interested in (somehow) getting to see the Mandalorian vs this film.
I'm still expecting it to put up some massive numbers overall of course. After all, it IS Star Wars and the name alone will bring in huge numbers. But it'll be a significant dip down.
