I also agree. It's not like they don't have the money, resources, and if not the talent they (the big studios) could easily find and hire new talent. New writers, directors, even actors at the ready with thought provoking ideas and performances.
Then again maybe they realized that movies like Star Wars were too good and it's easier to spoon feed the masses garbage and keep their expectations low. So low that all they need to do is crap on a metal platter instead of a plastic plate and people praise it.
Why raise the bar and have to do more work when the money machine works as it is?
The problem is they, at least those in the Disney camp, have gotten so full of themselves they believe they can blatantly insult the fans with no repercussion.
I hope they keep insulting the fans and making bad movies, to the point that they/the new Star Wars collapses. That it's so startling the execs in other studios realize that looking backward to make a quick cynical dollar is NOT the way to make movies. It's time to move forward again.
