You mean like Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi? Honestly, if Hollywood is dead set and determined to continue milking the Star Wars universe as a cinematic franchise instead of, I don't know, actually developing new IP, this is about as good a development as any. Disney's acquisition of Marvel certainly didn't seem to adversely affect their ability to pump out fun films based on the property.
