The Neverending Story

Trivia: Atreyu's character was originally supposed to be green-skinned, as it was in the book. However, it didn't look too believable on film, and thus the green skin was scrapped.

Trivia: After finishing the movie, the horse Artax was given to Noah Hathaway (Atreyu) as a gift.

Trivia: The late author of the original story, Michael Ende, strongly protested the movie when it was presented to him.

Trivia: Nighthob actually says a swear word by accident as the Rockbiter is approaching him and Teeny in the first Fantasia scene.

Quotes

Rockbiter: They look like big, good, strong hands. Don't they? I always thought that's what they were. My little friends. The little man with his racing snail, the Nighthob, even the stupid bat. I couldn't hold on to them. The nothing pulled them right out of my hands. I failed.
Atreyu: No you didn't fail. I'm the one who was chosen to stop the nothing. But I lost the Auryn, I can't find my luck dragon, so I won't be able to get past the boundaries of Fantasia.
Rockbiter: Listen, the nothing will be here any minute. I will just sit here and let it take me away too. They look like good, strong hands. Don't they?
