    Synopsis


    The Neverending Story II: The Next Chapter
    Following the surprisingly successful children's fantasy The Neverending Story (1984), this lesser sequel presents the further adventures of the young boy Bastian in the magical land of Fantasia. Bastian (Jonathan Brandis) returns to this kingdom of the imagination, reached through a magical antique book, to escape from his unpleasant life as a social outcast with a distant father. Unfortunately, things aren't so great in Fantasia either, which is under attack by the sorceress Xayide (Clarissa Burt), and Fantasia's young leader soon recruits Bastian to help win the battle for their world. Several memorable creatures return from the first film, including the Rock Biter and the Luck Dragon, and a number of other strange beasts make appearances along the way. However, the plot often relies on stale fairy-tale elements that make the sequel feel substantially less original than the fresh and unexpectedly charming original. However, enough children were entertained by the special effects and the simple story of good-versus-evil for a third installment, The Never Ending Story 3: Escape from Fantasia, to follow three years later. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

      I had never sat and actually watched This film but as a collector of classic childhood films of all ages, I figured it must be classic for a reason. I thourghly enjoyed the First movie and it's story and the characters. I am now looking forward to reading the book which is always better than the film. As for this sequel, it could've been better but is not horrible nonetheless. Way to much time had gone by when it was being filmed as it doesn't feature its original cast. I know there is a third film but due to this film, I'm Not interested.

      Pros: Not far from the first. The transition from 333 to 1080 HD which looks even better on my OLED via 4k 60HZ upscale is well worth it! Cons: Original cast but Jonathan was a great replacement.

      Honestly the movie is kinda bad but I am a collector and it can be difficult to find this film. It does have elements for children and that can be used to help pass the time for bored kids. For the price it is not bad either. I would not say it is a movie I recommend to watch, but as a collector it is worth a shot, price dependent of course.

      I watched this movie back when I was a kid. Watching it again was like going back thru time. It has great visual quality in this blu ray restoration. If you already watched this movie you will want to watch it again and watch it with your kids and family.

      I am a huge fan of The Neverending Story and was very exited to see that they had made a whole series so - of course- I had to buy them and thankfully I found them at BestBuy.com for a very low cost! DVD arrived shortly after purchase and with no scratches - plays perfectly!

      if you saw neverending story you should like this very similiar, I really liked the first one, but the second adds a few new elements that make the movie enjoyable, worth watching.

      This is only a nice follow up - using most of the characters on the first film but it doesn't have the punch and quality of the original "Never Ending Story" However the transfer of good.
