Comic sidekicks (Threepio and Artoo)
A princess in peril (Leia)
Clear-cut good guys and bad guys (Empire versus Rebel Alliance)
The main villain dying after falling from a great height (again, Palpatine)
Hell, Return of the Jedi even has a musical number in Jabba's Palace! (a cringe-worthy one, but a musical number nonetheless)
This is all probably owed to the fact that SW is more fairy tale than sci-fi in story terms, and Disney has long been known for its fairy tales.
I can't wait to hear Stoo AKA "Indy should have nothing to do with Disney!" react to this theory...
