Western Animation: Starchaser: The Legend of Orin
Starchaser: The Legend of Orin is a 1985 animated Space Opera film. The story follows Orin, an escaped slave who must free his people from the Dark Lord after being chosen by a Magic Sword. Helping him along the way are a cigar-chewing smuggler, his neurotic Robot Buddy, a sassy fembot, a governer's daughter and a Fairy Companion.

Just from that synopsis one would think that this has something to do with that famous and successful space opera trilogy released throughout the last ten years. Indeed, this film is very similar in terms of story and design, but has since become a Cult Classic.
