Don't care. Episode VII was crap. But...
I do quite like Rian Johnsons work. The quality of Episode VIII won't be judged around the director however, it'll be judged by the story and script, which if later Star Wars films are anything to go by - appear to be overly underwhelming. If it has dialogue similar to Johnsons movie "Brick" however, it could be fun...

Generic Empire baddie: Fine. And very well put.
Generic character: Accelerated English, Mr. Yoda.
Generic Empire baddie: Tough teacher?
Generic character: Tough but fair.
