Perhaps, but I'm not so sure. If Disney keeps churning out SW films like clockwork and they tend to be rather uncreative or poorly made, I think people will look back at even the PT films with nostalgia.
What I mean is he can't win. He makes new SW trilogy and gets hated on. He lets Disney make the rest and still gets hated on.
Yes I also think we'll get a lot more originality in Rogue One and Ep.8. But ares made a good point about if they have the guts to let storm troopers and X-wings go by Ep.10. I'm not so sure they will.
Did you forget who Anakin actually is ? He's the guy too girly in the end to do squat to his son. He's the guy in the end with tears streaming down his face when he attacks the Jedi temple. He's the guy in the end overcome with grief when his skank mother dies. Anakin is too weak for the dark side. Kylo isn't.
I really wish they'd kept more of the feel of RotS when it comes to how the dark side practitioners are handled. Kylo Ren was way too much emo, not enough evil. He seemed like a petulant teenager who had no grasp of his own abilities and who threw tantrums. It was a waste of a Sith, a waste of a potentially good character, and a waste of an actor that I enjoy seeing. I'm hoping a lot changes going forward. It wasn't a very amazing film.
Looking forward to this in an already stacked year of films for 2017, especially since Rogue One and The Force Awakens were great films. I hope they delve a little more about what Luke did inbetween ROTJ/TFA, and we get some amazing training/teaching moments like in the OT

Problem for me that Ep. 8&9 have now is the whole set up of this trilogy is just way too similar to the OT. Which is always going to irritate me. And there's only so much Rian and Colin can do about that.
I'll obviously be excited when both those movies come out, and hope they're both very entertaining, but have to admit that's my least favourite SW era now, and I will be more excited for the spin off films. As R1 has shown, they have the most potential to mix nostalgia with something new and fresh, and give us variety.
