To your point about the "main" character issue; I think the recent Rian Johnson move is meant to combat this problem. With the new trilogy being unconnected and a television series (please one be old republic based) in the coming years the number of influential characters should be on the rise. I think this will help to give Star Wars the legs for a long time. I am interested to see the current trilogy will wrap up and how/if it will be continued in later movies. It sounds like Star Wars is going to move away from the "Skywalker saga" films in next few years, which should expand the universe.
With all the success Disney has had with the MCU I wouldn't be surprised if they take a similar approach with Star Wars. If there is any truth to the idea that the super hero movie fad will fade, could the Star Wars universe eventually out pace the MCU?
