WordOfGod states the decision for the color was made to avoid an "R" rating, with the added benefit of being a visual gag for the character.

** Septimus and Lamia were both villains in the book, but are more villianous in the movie: Septimus kills more people and is more ruthless, while Lamia is considerably more sadistic.

** Septimus and Lamia were both villains in the book, but are more villianous so in the movie: Septimus kills more people and is more ruthless, with the ending implying [[spoiler: that while all the other brothers, despite their sins, are going to heaven, he's going to hell]], while Lamia is considerably more sadistic.



** Lamia stops by a goatherd's hut and offers to buy his goat. When Bernard points out that one goat isn't strong enough to pull her cart, she quips, "Hmm. You're quite right," [[BalefulPolymorph turns Bernard into another goat,]] and takes them both. The hapless goatherd gets dragged along by the villains for most of the rest of the film.

It does turn out well for him in the end, though, as he's seen [[spoiler: sitting next to Captain Shakespeare and cheering when Tristan is crowned.]]

** In fairness, the point is more 'don't try to be accepted by people who won't accept you, or do what they expect of you, go out and find where you fit in, and people who will accept you'. The part about [[spoiler: Tristan being the last Prince of Stormhold]] is more of an afterthought (and a FridgeBrilliance explanation for why he was so clumsy/didn't fit in back in England).

* EvilOldFolks: Lamia and her sisters, though the King is pretty sociopathic too.



* HeroTrackingFailure: In the movie, during the final BossBattle, Lamia hurls spells and makes rows of windows dramatically explode one after the other, but seems persistently unable to hit Tristan or Yvaine ''who are running away in a straight line,'' [[OutrunTheFireball staying just in front of the explosions]]. They don't even get a scratch from the flying shards. Given that she needs to cut out Yvaine's heart and eat it, she's likely not ''trying'' to hit them, she's just terrorizing them ForTheEvulz and herding them back towards her.

* ManIFeelLikeAWoman: Bernard checks him/herself(?) out after Lamia transforms him into a girl. Though his sex is changed, Lamia didn't do as good a job with transforming his voice, so he replies with a masculine voice when he tries to serve poisoned wine to Tristan in the stable.

Added DiffLines:

* FakeShemp: The inn scene was particularly tricky to shoot, as not all the actors were available at the one time. So there was heavy use of this technique to give the impression that Lamia, Tristen, Yvaine, Primus, Billy and Bernard are all in the scene together.

''Stardust'' is a 2007 film adaptation of Creator/NeilGaiman's book [[Literature/{{Stardust}} of the same name]]. While certain liberties were taken, it remains a relatively faithful adaptation. When a star falls from the sky, Tristan Thorn sets out to find a fallen star for Victoria the girl he's in love with, only to find that the "star" is a human woman named Yvaine... and that three evil witches want to capture her. Yvaine is also being chased by heirs to the throne of the magical kingdom of Stormhold who seek Yvaine's ruby necklace.

With an AllStarCast comprised of Creator/CharlieCox, Creator/ClaireDanes, Creator/RobertDeNiro, Creator/MichellePfeiffer, and Creator/MarkStrong, the film is said to remind viewers of ''Film/ThePrincessBride''. Although the movie contains a different ending from the book, it's successful at playing straight many of the often clichéd fantasy elements in an intelligent and entertaining way.
