Storyline

The sudden death of Bastian Bux's mother leads the twelve-year old boy to seek solace in his imagination. Inspired by a magical book given to him by an eccentric bookseller named Carl Coreander, Bastian comes in contact with an enchanted world called Fantasia, where his alter ego Atreyu is sent on a magical quest to save the Childlike Empress. But malevolent forces of conformity and emptiness threaten Fantasia's very existence. Xayide, the Dark Princess, strives to attain supreme power by sending a werewolf shape-shifter into Bastian's world to try to stop the boy from reading "The Neverending Story." As Atreyu battles the Dark Forces in Fantasia, Bastian realizes he must battle a demonic substitute teacher in his very own school. Written by Muse Entertainment

Should I be sad or angry?
29 December 2018 | by dbrunnoSee all my reviews

First of all, this movie is nothing like the original book. Secondly, it's nothing like the original movie either. It is a fantasy movie with a completely different story? So why did they use names and symbols from those originals? Now, everybody has expectations and are going to be disappointed. They created new characters and new stories. They should have used new names.

Looking at it as a new story, it still is quite bad. Basically the story is too random. Too many things are happening without a cause or reason.

If you're looking for a deeper lesson or meaning, like in the book: there is none.

I'm sad this movie is not the new fantasy world it could be. I'm angry the makers used an original piece of art to sell their garbage.
