Star Wars already hit rock bottom with the prequels, this is literally a case of no where to go but up. Even if these movies are spectacularly mediocre that'll be a huge step up.
Plus, the less I hear Lucas is involved the more excited I am for them. It baffles me that people still think he's a competent director after the prequels and Red Tails.
In your opinion, it has hit rock bottom. You keep forgetting to put that in, just because you think something has hit rock bottom doesn't mean it actually hasn't for other people or at all.
