How ‘The Neverending Story’ Truly Never Ends, Explained
Remember that movie you absolutely loved as a kid? As a kid, I can remember adoring The NeverEnding Story , the fantasy spectacular filled with luckdragons and childlike empresses and rock eaters and sneezing giant turtles. I likely watched it a few times on home video when I was in grade school, and as I got older, I would think back on the movie with warm and deep feelings of affection and nostalgia. And that is where I should have left it. Unfortunately, I did re-watch this movie as an adult, and it was a heartbreaking, illusion-shattering experience. Some movies are best left in childhood, only to be revisited in the flattering haze of memory.
The Neverending Story celebrates its 35th anniversary this summer. The tale of Fantasia and books that write themselves has captivated viewers for three and a half decades. Sure, the first film only ran 94 minutes and The Simpsons has a joke in which Lionel Hutz sues The Neverending Story for false advertising. However, The Neverending Story itself explains how it never ends. As you look back on The Neverending Story, understand how you are a part of the story that never ends. The Neverending Story continues along a Z-axis in which the story reaches beyond a single movie or book originally. Follow that logic outward and there are infinite levels of Neverending Story like a Russian nesting doll.
The film was produced by Bernd Eichinger and Dieter Giessler.

The NeverEnding Story is one of those classic films from the '80s that just about every kid saw. It tells the amazing story of a young boy who steals a special book and sneaks into the scariest room in his entire school to read it. As he settles in to read the book, the audience gets the feeling they are also experiencing the story in much the same way. As the story unfolds, it turns out he is truly experiencing the story and even the characters become aware of his involvement in stopping The Nothing! The story reveals that a terrible thing called The Nothing is sweeping across the magical world of Fantasia because children all over the world aren't reading and enjoying fiction and fantasy enough. It's up to Bastian Bux, the young boy with the book, to save Fantasia by naming the Childlike Empress.
The original film, The NeverEnding Story , was directed and co-written by Wolfgang Petersen and was later followed by two sequels. The first film adapted the first half of the original novel, the second half of the novel was used as the rough basis for the second film, The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter.
