Agreed, though Solo does also get some well deserved criticism and the High Republic BS gets openly mocked by most I've heard (which isn't many since most don't even know or care about it)

Yeah that's about accurate. I personally had no issue with Solo but I could see it being an acquired taste due to the re-casting of iconic characters and people feeling like having a back-story movie for Solo partly ruins the surprise in A New Hope that shows him to be more than he first appears (i.e. the "rough person with a heart of gold").

I had no problem with the concept, just the implementation left a lot to be desired

On the silver lining side, it is probably a lot of the reason that SW has largely moved to the series format, which I think is a much better way to tell star wars stories with all the depth they deserve
