For those of you who never watched or read the Neverending Story, let me give you a brief synopsis.
The story is about a boy named Bastian who steals a book called the Neverending Story. Bastian starts reading the book in the attic of the school and is soon deep in the world of Fantasia. Fantasia is about to be destroyed by a creature called “The Nothing”. One person stands in its way however – a boy warrior named Atreyu who is Bastian’s age. Atreyu has a magic medallion that guides him.Atreyu goes through many trials and obstacles in his mission to stop The Nothing. The Nothing, recognizing Atreyu as a threat, sends the creature called Gmork to defeat the warrior. Gmork is described as a wolf-like creature who is covered in fur, has huge fangs, and talks. Through Atreyu’s journeys, Gmork appears to be quite evil, and follows him, attempting to thwart him at every turn, before finally having one final battle with Atreyu in his mission to stop him. Eventually Atreyu is able to reach an Oracle to find out what must be done to stop The Nothing. The Oracle declares that the empress of Fantasia (who appears as a little girl), must be given a new name by a human child.
If you have never seen the Neverending Story, go and watch it! It was filmed in the 1980s and is really good – regardless of whether or not the “werewolf” creature is portrayed as evil.
Watch all the scenes that have the Wolf Gmork!
