Once upon a time, there was a prince. His name was Neil Gaiman. He wrote a book called Stardust. He wished upon a fallen star for it to be excellent, be directed by the extremely talented Matthew Vaughn and star some of Hollywood's all time greats plus a league of British comedic talent and a young up-and-coming actor called Charlie Cox.
His wish came true.
He lived happily ever after.
Stardust is great! Even my nephew loves it and he's three!
Oh and I just realised Captain Shakespeare is a literal Sky Captain. Call back to Sky Captain!
