Twelve-year-old Bastian Balthazar Bux had lost the wonderful imagination he had as a child somewhere between growing older, watching TV, going to school and playing with his Gameboy. But when his mother dies suddenly, Bastian's limitless imagination is reborn. Bastian comes across a magical book, "The Neverending Story", in a curious little bookstore. Inspired by the book, Bastian creates an enchanted world called Fantasia, inhabited by dragons, dark knights and assorted heroes and villains. The adventure of a lifetime begins when Bastian projects his Fantasian alter ego, Atreyu, into a battle against the sinister force of The Nothing. This terrible force threatens to destroy Fantasia and its ruler, the Childlike Empress. Only Atreyu, a 14-year-old Woodland boy and unlikely hero, can save her and find a cure for The Nothing. Bastian's experiences in the real world; such as his mourning, his new, sometimes tumultuous life with his dad, his problems with a school bully and his terror of... Written by Betty Palik

Did You Know?


Despite its title, this TV series doesn't focus so much on Bastian or the real world at all so The Tales From Fantasia would be a much more appropriate title, all things considered. See more »


Fly Girl: Oh, I know what this is about.
Atreyu: [there's a rumble] Did you hear that?
Fly Girl: Don't try to change the subject. But, you know, what happened...
Atreyu: [smiles] Oh, yeah, you kissed me.
Fly Girl: Actually, YOU kissed ME. But it's ok, I didn't take it personally.
Atreyu: [surprised] You didn't?
Fly Girl: [shrugs] No. People kiss each other all the time.
Atreyu: Well, not where I come from. Some people would take a kiss like that very seriously.
Fly Girl: [another growl] What was that sound?
Atreyu: [angry] Now who's changing the subject?

Good but not Neverending Story
17 November 2004 | by lortargSee all my reviews

While I enjoyed the Tales from the Neverending Story it really can't be thought of as the Neverending story. While I haven't read the book (yet, getting it soon), its like the writers watched the movie, grabbed bits they liked and then made the rest up. Throwing in characters and situations of their own devising and barely keeping anything intact from the movie. As a fantasy series though, it is very good. It Reminds me of other fantasy series (Australian made ones) like Thunderstone, Spellbinder and to a lesser extent Ocean Girl (all very good series that you should check out if you can). The characters are all well done, and while some of the situations are a little hard to believe, it is a fantasy show, and can be easily overlooked. Check it out, but don't start watching with the expectation of a remake of the movie.
