The Neverending Story Remake News

Hollywood's Really Never Ending The NeverEnding Story

A lot of popular culture from my childhood feels sacred, and The NeverEnding Story may very well be in my top five favorite fantasy movies I saw as a kid.

The movie actually had two sequels back in the day, and now it's coming around again: Leonard DiCaprio's production company as well as the folks behind The Curious Case of Benjamin Button are gearing up to figure out how to bring this fantasy back to the big screen for a new generation.

The original movie, based on a German-language novel, followed a lonely boy named Bastian who discovers a new land called Fantasia through reading. According to today's news, the new script will likely "examine the more nuanced details of the book that were glossed over in the first pic."

It's so strange to think about these mystical kid movies from the pre-CGI era. The original is dark and full of puppets and Falcor! I'm not sure a CGI-ed remake could touch the first one. Or maybe I just imagine this movie to be better than it actually was because everything seemed magical before I hit double digits — after all, even the two older sequels left me a little cold. How do you feel about this? Do you wish Hollywood would lay off the '80s already? Or is this a battle you just can't bring yourself to fight?

I work at home painting, while doing so I watch movies and listen to music. One of these movies that I watch almost every day is The NeverEnding Story. Sometimes I watch it two or three times a day. I can quote almost every part and I can easily say that along with Labrynth it is my favorite movie, partially because it was apart of my life growing up. As that said, I wouldn't mind a remake, just hopefully they put time and thought into it, so not to destroy the original or the story. It's something I'm now looking forward to. though if successful, it still wouldn't take the 80's versions place. :)

Whats wrong with all of you people very few children of today will watch anything made in the 80's (speaking from experience of trying to get them too) without the cgi of today they lose intrest... This was my all time favorite movie and to see it remade and closer to the original story would freakin amazing I just wish leo would act in it. Why does everyone complain about remakes. No one out there thinks a movie is perfect everyone takes their own imagination and takes it to a new level.. And if you have the money to make it better DO IT! Besides anything that is not a remake usually is not original it just combines like three storys and pretends to be new by adding explosions or sex for the pathetic people who think that makes a movie.

Oh wow! One of my absolute favorites also! I am okay with a reinterpretation. It's a great story. :)

I wish they would leave this movie alone, I doubt it can be improved upon. Sadly, I would be too tempted to see it if a new version did come out.
