As someone who is pretty burned out on Marvel, I find the hire meh. Like, marvel movies are far from perfect, and while they are generally good, I haven't thought one was great since Winter Soldier. And Fiege has produced on some real stinkers. Plus, their peak is basically "really good summer blockbuster," which is what Force Awakens and Rogue One already were, and there's a decent chance Rise of the Skywalkers or whatever will be too with JJ back directing. I guess "Marvel but with lightsabers" is better than the movies being bad, but it's also not really what I want for star wars. I'd rather we get more varied stories with some true stinkers than just more superhero blockbusters.
In fact I'm struggling to come up with JJ Abrams's masterworks...

Edit - And I STILL haven't watch the last movie, even though I'm pretty sure it's now on Disney Plus. Going from a kid who watched SW every couple weeks in my tween years to reading every EU book I could get my hands on to not remotely caring about a SW movie coming out is a pretty good indicator of how the series has been treated the past couple decades.
