Plot Outline: "Stardust," based on the best-selling graphic novel by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess, takes audiences on an adventure that begins in a village in England and ends up in places that exist in an imaginary world. A young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village. On his odyssey, Tristan finds the star, which has transformed into a striking girl named Yvaine (Claire Danes).

However, Tristan is not the only one seeking the star. A king's (Peter O'Toole) four living sons - not to mention the ghosts of their three dead brothers - all need the star as they vie for the throne. Tristan must also overcome the evil witch, Lamia (Michelle Pfeiffer), who needs the star to make her young again. As Tristan battles to survive these threats, encountering a pirate named Captain Shakespeare (Robert De Niro) and a shady trader named Ferdy the Fence (Ricky Gervais) along the way, his quest changes. He must now win the heart of the star for himself as he discover the meaning of true love.

On Lamia, the Wicked Witch: (taken out from the official production notes)

An equally thrilling piece of casting came with the addition of one of Hollywood's most acclaimed and beloved leading ladies, Michelle Pfeiffer, as the eternal-youth-seeking witch Lamia. Although Pfeiffer played a modern-day sorceress in "The Witches of Eastwick" oppsite Jack Nicholson, this role would take her much deeper into true fairy-tale territory. The fact that Pfeiffer has taken very few screen roles recently made it all the more exhilarating. "It's a real treat to see Michelle again in a role where she is ripping up the screen," say di Bonaventura.

Screenwriter Jane Goldman was especially gratified to see Pfeiffer bring the character of Lamia to life in all her colorful shading. "I was so excited to hear that Michelle had liked the script and especially that she had responded to the idea of a witch being in pursuit of youth and beauty -- with that being what ultimately destroyed them," Goldman says. "Michelle was just so perfect. She's such a beautiful woman but she plays a scary old witch brilliantly as well. It's great testament to her skill because she's not a cartoon witch by any means. She brings a real intelligence and depth to Lamia."

- Cox also found himself in a wild duel with three-time Academy award nominee Michelle Pfeiffer. "She's playing this ugly, scary witch so it was pretty crazy to see her in that kind of role, but I found her to be a truely lovely person and the moments I had on screen with her were brilliant,'' he says.

Dressing Up a Fairy Tale -- Wicked Witch Lamia : (taken out from the official production notes)
Michelle Pfeiffer's character, Lamia, wears an outfit inspired by her name, which originates from a Greek mythological figure who is half snake, half woman. "Her serpent-like qualities are reflected in the colors we used -- green, golds and blacks,'' says Sheldon. "There is a heaviness to her costume that emphasizes her large, dark impact on the world around her."
