I don't think this is a bad thing at all, by 2015 it will have been the better part of a decade since the second trilogy concluded. With some new leadership and creative talent I could definitely see Star Wars having a decent shot at redemption here.
I doubt anybody's pretending this is a bad thing. I actually feel like challenging Disney to make Star Wars any worse.
Unbearably "kiddy" nonsense? Been done.
Ridiculous fucking with canon? Oh boy, has it been done.
Outside of redoing the original trilogy as a musical, or the sequels being Marvel style "What Ifs?" where Anakin didn't turn evil, and to be honest even that can't be worse then THE COARSENESS OF SAND AND THE ANGELS OF LEGO LUCAS I WILL DESTROY YOU.
