Was Dune an influence on Star Wars?

Dune is a totally separate story from Star Wars and is not related to the Disney franchise whatsoever — even though Star Wars alum Oscar Isaac does have a part in the 2021 Dune. The interesting part of this all, however, is that both entities have been influenced by one another over the years.
