STARDUST is a fantasy adventure about a young man called Tristan who ventures into the magical world of Stormhold to find a fallen star.


There are fight scenes between the good and evil characters. Most of these consist of sword to sword duelling, some of which result in death. The fatalities are brief and bloodless and the impacts between weapon and body are hidden by clothing or furniture. The fantastical theme prevents the violence from being too graphic or realistic.


In some scenes the main heroes are threatened by bad witches or evil princes. These scenes are fantastical, brief and quickly resolved.

There is one use of mild bad language (‘bloody’) and there are some mild sex references including a rejuvenated witch admiring her own off-screen bottom in a mirror and a joke from a jovial pirate about ‘not wearing a wench out’.
