's original screenplay had Bastian in Fantasia for most of the storyline, with his new step-sister reading the book and initially trying to sabotage Bastian's story, but eventually starting to help him out. This was later changed to having Bastian spend most of the story in the real world, with the Nasties being the ones who tamper with the book, and his step-sister instead getting her hands on the Auryn and using it for selfish purposes.
