^ agreed. The more recent "there were only ever 6" revisionism was laughable, it was contradicted by multiple statements from the past, including some official ones.

It'll all pretty much hinge on the creative talent they hire. It'll be great to see a SW movie with good dialogue and acting. Been a while.
