The only reason we have Star Wars is because Lucas couldn’t get the rights to Flash Gordon. Also, Star Wars is a patchwork quilt of older sci-fi, 30’s serials, the Foundation series,and Kurosawa, etc. Asimov coined the term and concept of a Galactic Empire. Han Solo and the Falcon? “TRADERS— … and constantly in advance of the political hegemony of the Foundation were the Traders, reaching out tenuous fingerholds through the tremendous distances of the Periphery. Months or years might pass between landings on Terminus; their ships were often nothing more than patchquilts of home-made repairs and improvisations; their honesty was none of the highest; their daring …” That’s just off the top of my head. Star Wars is awesome, but it’s hardly original. For my part, the Seven Samurai riff stood out far more in this trailer than anything else.
