To be fair… enthusiasm for Star Wars was at an all-time low. At least that’s how I saw things irl… in 2015 the marketing for Star Wars was huge. Everyone talked about it that December. Then in 2016 and 2017, the excitement was less than in 2015 but still far-reaching. Everyone was at least aware of the Star Wars movie coming out even if they weren’t planning on watching it.

But in 2019 everyone was… tired? At least from what I saw, there wasn’t much general excitement for the movie. Maybe the marketing was too focused on “the end” when everyone knew Disney would keep making movies. Maybe this was the first movie without the return of an iconic character (Han/Vader/Luke). Or maybe it wasn’t Disney’s fault at all and three was just the magic number for people to become tired with the franchise.

I don’t think it had anything to do with low reactions to TFA or TLJ, but there definitely was a dip in enthusiasm among general audiences.

The issue is this…why are people so easily tired of Star Wars if marvel released 6 movies within a span of two years?

It has 100 percent to do with TLJ…the tired feeling that you described started after TLJ, climaxed with the bombing of solo in 2018, and had its logical conclusion in 2019

TROS making less than a R rated joker movie and only making a billion because of its finale factor and palpatine

There is no such thing as Star Wars fatigue…there is only bad movie fatigue

And TLJ was one bad movie too many(speaking to the sheer toxicity of its storytelling decisions)
