While audiences won’t want to confuse Stardust with pixie dust (meaning leave the Peter Pan crowd at home), this more adult-appropriate story about finding true love and discovering inner strength unfolds in a fantasy setting where everyday characters aren’t always what they appear.

Beyond the movie ratings: What Parents need to know about Stardust...

In an attempt to secure power and everlasting life, characters are stabbed, impaled, poisoned, crushed by a chandelier, drowned and pushed out of a window. A lively group of ghosts (who are seen depicting their modes of death) are involved in the story from the sidelines. The trio of witches uses magical incantations, voodoo dolls and the entrails of freshly slain animals to work their sorcery and put hapless bystanders under spells. In turn, animals attack and kill a woman and a brilliant light causes the explosion of one witch. Infrequent bawdy jokes (including a male character being turned into a woman) and two implied sexual encounters between unmarried couples are depicted along with some sexual comments and innuendo. The film also contains brief portrayals of alcohol use, mild cursing and occasional profanities.
