Han was supposed to be 29 in A New Hope so 10 years might be a stretch?

Reviews are a bit mixed. I have read it’s a bit safe / boring with a ‘linear’ storyline.

Gotta say after the glowing reviews for TLJ, I’m quite relieved by that! If by ‘linear’ they mean the plot isn’t incredibly convoluted to the point of being nonsensical, then that might suit me down the the ground!

Saw the trailer with Lando/Han in a gambling den, and thought the space aliens seemed very pretty cool (and very OT). Not enough space aliens in the new films for my liking (That canto bight scene felt too prequelly and cartoon-ish for me, besides being utterly boring and pointless).

Personally I hope it’s more akin to rogue one than the main trilogy.

Couldn't agree more.
If the likes of Collider, Jeremy Jahns and John Campea are giving it so-so reviews, then there's a good chance I'm going to love it.

Looks like the fan backlash boycott might just be happening, though.
Just checked my local Vue (Cribbs Causeway Bristol) and the midnight showings are virtually empty.
Also, down to 46% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Yeah, I think that was always going to happen after TLJ, particularly with Solo coming out so soon after.

Just because it is Star Wars, they can't just churn out anything and have all the fans enjoy it, In fact quite the opposite.

Even more care needs to be taken to appease the OT fans whilst also bringing something new for the younger audiences. Tricky, but with the right people working on a project it can certainly be done. I thought TFA had it's flaws but still mostly enjoyed it. TLJ on the other hand was a bit of a mess, I particularly did not like the way they handled Luke and his part of the story.
