Stardust (2007)
In the sleepy English village of Wall--so named for the cobblestone divider that has, for hundreds of years, kept the villagers safely apart from the strange, supernatural realm that lies just on the other side--young Tristan Thorne makes a wild-eyed promise to the prettiest girl in the village. It is hers, whose heart he hopes to win: by bringing her back a fallen star. But in order to make good on his promise, Tristan will have to cross the forbidden wall, and enter a mysterious kingdom lit by unending magic, and holding legends of which he will quickly become a part. In this fantastical realm known as Stormhold, Tristan discovers that the fallen star is not the meteorite he expected, but a beautiful, spirited young woman injured by her cosmic tumble. Now, she is in terrible danger--sought after by the King's scheming sons for whom only her secret powers can secure the throne; and, as well, hunted by a chillingly powerful witch desperate to use the star to achieve eternal youth and beauty. As Tristan sets out to protect the star and bring her back to his beloved on the other side of the wall, his journey will bring unforeseen romance, highflying adventure, and incredible encounters with a pirate captain, a shady trader, and an enchanted unicorn among other surprises.
