I’ll expand on this later but:
I feel like it was really true to the previous movies, but by being true to the rest of Star Wars, it was really jarringly old-feeling, in some ways. It has a very high-fantasy-ish approach to good and evil, destiny, family heritage, etc. which is just not how most stories– even fantasy nonvels in high-fantasy-ish settings! do those things currently. I had to keep reminging myself, “you’re supposed to take the Force seriously.” IDK.
