In this timeless Hollywood classic, a lonely young boy with a love of books becomes drawn into the wonderland world of Fantasia--a magical domain filled with wondrous creatures that that only he can save from certain destruction. Directed with great panache by the late Wolfgang Peterson, who recently passed away after an illustrious career of helming blockbuster hits (Air Force One, In The Line of Fire, The Perfect Storm), this spirited, captivating story continues to delight viewers of every age and every generation -- and to occupy a place at the heart of popular culture. (In 2019, the theme song for the film was used in the third season of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things and became an internet sensation,) Introduce your kids to a dazzling world where reading books is magic and a child's imagination keeps the forces of Nothing at bay -- and relive the childlike wonder that you used to feel when you first immersed yourself in The Neverending Story.
