Would you like Star Wars Infinities style anthology films?

Disney has said they plan for a Star Wars movie to come out every year for at least the next ten years, so would you like it if some of the side anthology films were done in Infinities style? 

Star Wars Infinities was basically the Star Wars equivalent of Marvel's What If series.  They would change a certain event (like Luke's shot failing to destroy the Death Star) and then explore the changes this would have going forward.  For clarity, I'm not saying they would actually adapt the stories in the Star Wars Infinities comics, just use the concept of out of continuity and alternate takes on past SW events.

Would you personally like it?

Would general audiences understand and/or accept it?

Even if they did, they wouldn't like it

No cohesion to latch onto.

These were comics? Keep them as comics

General audiences have a hard enough time understanding reboots, let alone "what if"-type movies.  And considering the original cast is either unavailable for these movies (Fischer and Ford) or would be limited in what they can do (Hamill), it would be hard to do this kind of thing with any classic characters.

Better as a Twilight Zone style concept on tv.

This is pretty much what the current trilogy is.-- an non canonical Elseworlds, like all of Disney's pseudo Star Wars.
