''Siegfried dealt the king a mortal blow.

and offered him his lance.''




Hi, Dad.

Out of the pool, kids.

Stop horsing around.

Everybody, line up!

-Who wants to make the team?


Good. Let's see who's got what it takes.

We're going to start with the high board.

Billy, go!

Bastian...'re next.


Bastian, go for it!

What's the matter?

l got a cramp.

High wimp factor.

Sorry, coach.

How did it go?

Did you make the swim team?


What happened?

l didn't jump.

Why not?

l guess l...

...had a cramp.

Going out tonight?

Yeah. Technical sales staff seminar.

ls Ms. Station Wagon picking you up?

Why do you say that?

The tie.


Dressing is common courtesy, Bastian.

Something you must learn.

Look at that rag you're wearing.

-l like it.

-Well, l don't.

Mom made it!

You don't remember, do you?

l've gotta go.

Mr. Koreander?

Well, it's been a while.

-l dropped in to say hi.


Do you carry ''How-to'' books?

''How-to'' books?

Does this place look like a supermarket?

lf you want advice on buying real estate...

...or housebreaking your goldfish...

...go to the video store down the street.

What is it you want to know?

Something about heights.

How to be able to jump from a high...

...a very high... extremely high diving board.

l'll look in my section on...


We need your help.

Help us.

Please come back, Bastian.

'' The Neverending Story.''

Put it back!

That book asks too much of you.

But have you ever read a book twice?

Books change each time you read them.

-Give it back.

-l really want to read it again.

No, no. Look what l found for you.

Let me borrow it, please!

No, Bastian!



We need your help.

Come back to Fantasia.

We are in great danger.


An Earthling to save the Childlike Empress!


Enter, my spy.

Mistress of Horok Castle,

l came as fast as l....

-You were saying?

-l could gain the boy's confidence.

l don't care about his confidence.

l want his wishes.

Tri Face!

The Memory Machine.

Explain it to him, Tri Face.

Yes, explain it!

Every time the Earthling

uses Auryn to make a wish... new invention

makes him lose a memory!

With each wish,

the liquid in his head forms a memory ball.

lt falls down and is collected... the beaker below.

What happens when he has lost

all of his memories?

Obviously, the beaker at the bottom is full.

And the Earthling's head is empty.

He won't remember where he came from.

He won't remember his own world.

Why he came to Fantasia.

He will forget the Childlike Empress.

That's when l'll bring order to the chaos

they call dreams and stories.

Nimbly, go!

Make the Earthling wish.

Are you okay?

Fine. l'm fine.

My best landing yet.

Looks like you just got your wings.

No, l've always had them.

l'm Bastian.

Nimbly's the name, tour guide's the game!

Let me show you the sights of Silver City!

Watch out!

Pure acid!


Fantasians will be grateful

if you wish for the lake to be filled...

...with crystal spring water instead.

What do you mean, if l would wish?

You have Auryn.

lt fulfills all of your wishes.

Too bad only one of these exists.

You want something. You wish it.

Auryn makes it happen.

You're very lucky.

Come on! Try it out.

Start with the lake. Make it purple.

Add some sugar.

Raise the temperature

so we can go swimming.

l don't know.

l'm sure there's a reason for the acid.

Maybe it keeps everything shiny.
