If The Last Jedi was not divisive when it came out, how much would it, Solo, and The Rise of Skywalker have made at the box office?

No, the problem is this argument continues to make no conceptual sense. This implies some sort of magical "star wars legs effect" existing independently of all other films and independent of various temporal factors? Why not compare it to the universe of all films?

The best reason to use this argument was due to the relative lack of megablockbusters released in december prior to the 2010s. We don't have that problem anymore and TLJ's post-OW drops remain steep relative to other releases in same time period. I just continue to see a valid conceptual argument that refutes this obvious legs observation at this point. There were reasonable counterarguments in early 2017 but we're not stuck with that vision.
