Neverending Story

Pinakita sa akin kanina ito ng brother ko. After ko makita yun trailer, napaka "nostalgic" ng naramdaman ko... para akong bumalik sa 1984, panahon ng kabataan ko hehehhe. Nakakamiss. Ilang beses ko ng napanood at iniyakan ang pelikulang ito (lalo na yun part na lumulubog sa kumunoy yun kabayo ni Atreyu), kasama na rin ang part 2 at 3...

Nakita ko ang plot ng istorya sa wikipedia:

The book centres on a boy, Bastian Balthazar Bux, who meets a mysterious man who owns a small antique bookstore and steals a book called The Neverending Story. Bastian reads it.

The book begins in Fantastica when a "will-o-the-wisp" goes to ask the Childlike Empress (Moon Child) for help against the Nothing, which is spreading over the land. The Empress herself is ill, which is believed to be the cause of the Nothing; she sends a warrior named Atreyu to find a cure for her. In doing so, Atreyu meets characters such as Ygramul, Uyulala, and the gnomes Urgl and Engywook. Atreyu also meets Falkor, the luck dragon, who helps him on his quest. But after Falkor accidentally drops Atreyu in Spook City, Atreyu meets Gmork the werewolf, who has been following Atreyu since the early days of his quest. G'mork soon dies, but Falkor and Atreyu leave Spook City to find the Ivory Tower, where the Childlike Empress lives. The Childlike Empress reveals that the only thing that can save Fantastica is a human child, who must give her a new name to star again the cycle of life in Fantastica. Bastian comes to Fantastica by naming the Empress 'Moon Child'; she asks him to help re-build Fantastica with his imagination and he subsequently has many adventures of his own in his new world. With the help of the AURYN, a Gem that links him to the Empress and gives him power over all the inhabitants of Fantastica, Bastian explores the Desert of Colours, battles the evil Xayide, and meets the three Deep Thinkers, one of whom is Yispu, who is a human with the head of a fox. Bastian becomes friends with Atreyu, although their rivalry leads to a fight in which Atreyu is injured. Eventually, Bastian and Atreyu reunite and Bastian soon returns home.
