The three witches share their names with demonic creatures from Greek mythology. Lamia and Mormo were demons who ate children (the former was a former lover of Zeus, the god-king), and Empusa was a creature sent by the goddess Hekate to eat travelers.< /p>
In case you haven’t seen it yet, it stars the brilliant Michelle Pfeiffer as Lamia, including Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Mark Strong, Rupert Everett, Ricky Gervais, Robert De Niro, and Peter O’Toole. Nobody you’ve ever heard of, of course. Oh, and a guy named Ian McKellan is doing the whole thing.
Lamia is the main antagonist of Stardust.
The Lilim are three fictional malevolent witches appearing in Neil Gaiman’s novel Stardust, with the oldest of them serving as the book’s main antagonist. Throughout the novel, they seek a fallen star named Yvaine, for devouring her heart will grant them centuries of youth and beauty.
Una is a supporting character in the Stardust novel and film. She is the mother of Tristan Thorn and was imprisoned as a slave by Ditchwater Sal. She is portrayed by Kate Magowan.
Yvaine was an evening star who loved watching the actions of the people below. She lived in heaven with her mother and extended family for hundreds of years. According to the novel, she has a beautiful voice and tells Tristan that she loved singing with her sisters.

Ian McKellen has signed on to voice the narration in Matthew Vaughn’s romantic fantasy Stardust for Paramount Pictures. Starring Claire Danes, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Charlie Cox, production on the film wrapped in the fall.
Victoria Forester: A resident of Wall, described as “the prettiest girl in a hundred miles.” She is the daughter of Bridget Comfrey and Tommy Forester. Although Tristran is in love with her, she doesn’t return his feelings and doesn’t take his promise to bring her the fallen star seriously at first.
They seek the fallen star because centuries of youth and beauty are bestowed upon them by consuming their hearts. Using magic counteracts the effect; so she grows older and uglier with each spell cast by the Witch Queen.
When Tommy Forester is thrown to the ground in battle, Bridget rushes over to him, “and wiped the mud off his face with her apron and called him all sorts of pet names” (1.38). And what do you know? She’s getting married to the guy later that year. Victoria is her daughter.
The film is loosely based on an ill-fated 1971 tour of America to promote The Man Who Sold The World, which was intended to depict the beginnings of his role as Ziggy Stardust.
Planetary scientist and stardust expert Dr. Ashley King explained. “It’s 100% true: Almost all elements in the human body were made in a star and many have undergone multiple supernovae. ‘
At the wedding/coronation at the end, Captain Shakespeare throws a look and a knowing wink at Humphrey, who returns a faint smile and a possible wink, meaning he’s either bisexual, he’s another crossdresser or he’s secretly gay and victoria’s the beard, or he’s just rolling with the weirdness, much to victoria’s…
In the film, the two live together as rulers of Stormhold to old age, and then – when they are very old – ascend to the heavens to live together as stars. It’s a thoroughly happy ending, one that doesn’t make Tristan sever his ties to his family and friends in Wall, and one that some Gaiman fans have trouble with. p>
Tristran Thorn’s journey into the faerie will be far more eventful than he ever imagined. A mysterious little traveling companion becomes an invaluable ally when witches and warlords of unimaginable power gather elsewhere.
