No disagreement from me there....

In Reply To
truthfully, the dialogue that did actually end up in the first disney SW movie is far from the quality that I would expect to see in any decent adaptation of Tolkien. However, yes there's no reason at this point to believe that the dialogue in those audition tapes are actual in show dialogue, but there's similarly no reason to believe that it isn't either...one thing however is certain, what we are seeing is not in any way similar to anything you would ever see in any of Tolkien's writings.

I'm just wary of prejudging anything until we see something official in the way of dialogue/plot/script.

All we have thus far is general setting (in the most general way, literally just 'Second Age') and a bunch of actors, nothing in the way of what source material they are actually using, the main storyline, the visual look, the themes etc.

My reticence in viewing audition scripts as, in any sense, an indication of what to expect is simply on the basis of past experience from other shows.

I'm no Star Wars fan, myself (and wouldn't rate any of the films), but I will say that the dialogue in the actual first film was much better than the audition scripts - a low bar, perhaps, given that the former were gobbledegook, but it certainly was a whole lot better.
