The boy who needs a friend finds a world that needs a hero in a land beyond imagination. While avoiding bullies on his way to school, Bastian (Barret Oliver) ducks into a bookstore where he finds an intriguing book called “The NeverEnding Story.” Despite warnings of the book’s special powers, Bastian sneaks away and begins reading it in his school’s attic. Through the twists and turns of the book’s fantasy land, Fantasia, Bastian discovers that the kingdom needs the help of a human child to survive The Nothing – a darkness that destroys everything it touches. When Bastian reads a description of himself in the book, he begins to wonder if Fantasia may actually be real.

“‘The NeverEnding Story’ evokes a certain sense of adventure in everyone – the longing for a journey, a daring quest of bravery on which you learn your true merit through the winding road of unexpected challenges, is something we can all relate to,” Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said.

Directed by Wolfgang Peterson (Das Boot, Air Force One), The NeverEnding Story also stars Gerald McRaney, Noah Hathaway, Tami Stronach, Moses Gunn, Patricia Hayes and Alan Oppenheimer as the narrator.
