Crazy Credits

As usual, in the opening credits, the names are written in a bigger font than the jobs and in capital letters only. However, Michael Ende's name is written next to "Based on the novel by" and "THE NEVERENDING STORY" appears where his name should be. See more »

Was ok. Not like the first, but better than the third
20 January 2019 | by princessstrickland21See all my reviews

Jonathan Brandis, god rest his soul, did ok as Bastin.

The story was all right, different and well... not as strong as the first.

Bastin, this time, can go into the book as well as help Atreyu fight off evil empress that has a wish machine that everytime he makes a wish a piece of his memory is gone.

Ok I guess, but not like the first
