From the manufacturer
Visit a Land Beyond Imagination
An ’80s movie classic, The NeverEnding Story tells the tale of a young boy named Bastian Bux. Constantly tormented by bullies at school and forever lectured by his father for daydreaming, Bastian seeks refuge one day in an old bookstore. There, he is shown an ancient volume decorated with mysterious symbols. Despite a warning that the book could be dangerous, Bastian decides to 'borrow' it. As he begins to read through the book, the boy not only loses himself in the pages but comes to realize he’s actually part of the story.
The film was made in Germany. At the time, it was the most expensive movie ever made there.
The original Auryn from the film now hangs in a glass case display in Steve Spielberg’s office.
The motorized 'puppet' Falkor (the luckdragon in Fantasia) was 43 feet long. It had six thousand plastic scales and its fur was made of pink feathers.
