Literature came to life in the 1984 fantasy adventure The NeverEnding Story. In the film, a troubled young boy named Bastian is submersed in a wondrous world called Fantasia. With every page he turns, he learns of a mysterious threat called The Nothing, and of Atreyu, the young warrior tasked with ending The Nothing in order to save Fantasia. The film stretched our imaginations by introducing us to magical luck dragons, evil werewolves, and talking rocks. Here's what the movie had to teach us.
