Disney recently made public their plan to alternate a new SW movie with a new Avatar movie. Starting in 2021 and ending in 2026, we will see a new movie every year and a new SW movie every other year.

I am not sure that folks are really wanting more Avatar.  While it was a decent flick, it was a little Star Wars mixed with Pocahontas.  It did so well because there were no other big sci-fi contenders at the time.  Now, they have a lot more competition, and the story of Avatar hasn't really aged well.

If they do more of them, I may or may not see them.  The first one felt complete and didn't really need more in my opinion.  To continue just feels like feeding the ol' cash cow to me.

What I want to see is some canonization of the Old Republic.  Although I guess since characters from those stories/games/novels are starting to appear in canonized games, and with Darth Bane appearing in TCW that may mean their stories are becoming canon.  Still, I'd love to see them in movies.

I'd also like to see them fill in some gaps between ROTJ and TFW.  Actually between the Aftermath novels and TFW.  Maybe they were keeping some of the birth of the First Order story under wraps to not spoil the return of Palpatine, or maybe they didn't want the whining of the people who thought there was too much politics in the prequels, but it really doesn't seem they did enough to support the rise of the First Order out of the ashes of the Empire.

After seeing the new one, I feel that we could have had something amazing but have been cheated out of it.  We got mediocrity and lazy storytelling.  They should have let Star Wars die with Vader and the Emperor.

Has anyone seen the Star Wars:Mandalorian show on Disney + yet? I dont have it yet (i'm planning on subscribing in January), and the Baby Yoda reveal was spoiled by all the memes online, but I've heard it's some of the best SW material in a long time.

Yes, Mandalorian is excellent. I also enjoyed Rise Of Skywalker

If this trilogy was created with the sole purpose of making the prequels seem acceptable then they succeeded. I understand that The Last Jedi created a mess to be cleaned up for whoever directed this last one, but to me this was a major failure and has effectively muddled the story of the original trilogy.

Love Rogue One and Solo, but I have decided to consider that this latest trilogy does not exist alongside the others.

I agree wholeheartedly!  To be honest, if they do any further Star Wars movies, I will mostly likely think twice about going.

I disagree.  The Rise of Skywalker almost saved this trilogy from complete irrelevance.  Was it perfect?  No, but it was a big mess to clean up and I'm surprised it did as well as it did.  Time will tell where it ranks with me but Rise of Skywalker will be at least in the top half. 

I will still prefer the sequel trilogy to the prequel trilogy, but nothing touches the originals.  I loved Rogue One but didn't care for Solo.

I saw TLJ for the first time yesterday... or at least the first hour. It's not nearly as bad as I feared, quite enjoyable. Not as good as some of the EU material that was set after Episode 6, but still entertaining. We'll probably finish the movie tonight.
