It's based on an old pulp fiction sci-fi novel (or is it comic book?) by same dude that did Tarzan.
It's based on a series of books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. They are Sci Fi classics, I've read them and they are great. If Disney handled this right then they could have a movie franchise that spanned decades.

Barsoom series
