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 »
This movie completely destroys the magic of the 1st one!!!!
The 1st "Neverending Story" was one of my favorite movies as a child so naturally, I couldn't wait for the sequel. I was completely horrified at the transformation of my favorite characters!! Although this one was made in English and the first one German, at the very least they could have done was get actors that resembled the original ones. I thought Bastien in both movies was very annoying, but I was heartbroken that characters were changed significantly. The magic and the fantasy of the first film was ruined because the 2nd looked like a "Power Rangers" episode. It was completely awful and I was disappointed in so many ways. LONG LIVE THE ORIGINAL!! Do not waste your time with the sequels, they don't have the emotion, fantasy or anything compared to the original.
