Ian McKellen is set to voice the narration for the romantic fantasy, Stardust for Paramount Pictures.

The film stars Claire Danes, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Charlie Cox; The Hollywood Reporter notes McKellen is recording his part during post-production. It's based on Neil Gaiman's novel and centers on a young man who promises his beloved that he will retrieve a fallen star by venturing into the Faerie realm, where he encounters witches, goblins, gnomes, talking animals and evil trees. Gaiman's fairy tale debuted in 1997 as a four-issue DC Comics miniseries with illustrations by Charles Vess; it was published as a single book the following year.

Stardust wrapped production last year; a July 27th release date has been set.
