TLJ was divisive. Fine. Like it or don't, but Disney's track record so far is otherwise quite solid.
Rebels and Rogue One are the best SW we've gotten since 1980. Solo is great. I didn't like TFA at first, but it's a solid movie that's really grown on me. Resistance started slow but is really kicking it into high gear. Forces of Destiny is mostly inconsequential fluff, but not awful.
A lot of the better aspects of the old EU are being worked in. About 75% of the new comics and novels are good, which is a much more solid percentage than pre-Disney.
Aside from a serious lack of focus on the merchandise (which could be either Disney or Hasbro, there's no telling), it looks to me like we're actually way better off.
I'll agree with that. I liked Rebels and Rogue One. Only saw one episode of Resistance, and I can't really form an opinion yet.
As far as merchandise, it is all over the place. I could have sworn I saw a 3.75" playset for Solo at Target, which seems weird because Hasbro just never seemed to like making playsets. I haven't been following everything that closely lately, but Hasbro really seems to be focusing on the 6" line and just putting out token 3.75" figures.
