It involved air-ship battles...and little flyers that intercepted larger convoys, which is a fairly common military tactic, I only bring it up as it seems somewhat relevant. And I guess you're right, there is no way Luke went to another planet and recieved some way of amplifying his powers. That didn't happen. At all.
Stop grasping at straws. Swashbuckling films post-date A Princess of Mars and pre-date Star Wars. Youre just looking to compare the two and call shit on SW
Well, you can argue it inspired Dune, which inturn made Star Wars possible. (If you're going to say Star Wars was possible without Dune, you're talking out of your ass and I win) Also, your reasoning makes no sense: "Swashbuckling has been made between Princess and SW" Why don't you say "Swashbuckling pre-dates Princess"? Oh wait, I think he's got Prometheus syndrome!

What? I don't...Are you saying it's as terriblyy cliche as Avatar? At least Star Wars was trying to take a new perspective on an old idea...Avatar was just an old idea, and didn't realize it.
