My wife doesn't seem to agree with that claim.

Everyone says there are no rules in fiction, until a unicorn shows up in Star Wars.

Ah, le mot juste.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Hollywood may be losing out on a future blockbuster franchise.
