Rumours have been flying about a reboot of the classic fantasy movie The NeverEnding Story.
80s nostalgia is reaching its peak and companies seem to riding the wave of its increased popularity. It has been recently announced (but not confirmed) that Disney plan to create a reboot of the classic 80s movie A NeverEnding Story.
The original movie was released in 1984, inspired by the 1979 fantasy novel by Michael Ende. The movie only remade the first half of the book, with the second half released 6 years later with The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter.
This latest adaptation may, once again, be split into multiple parts but it has not yet been confirmed.
There have been many rumours of this upcoming remake, including some that a bidding war between multiple companies for the rights to the story had been taking place.
This bidding war was apparently between some unnamed studios and streaming services, Disney, and Warner Bros who made the original movie.
Someone has even gone as far as mocking up a movie teaser poster just like Disney would create.
Whether this means the movie will be on its way or not, we do not yet know. Meanwhile, fans are anxiously wondering if their favourite childhood movie is going to be dragged through the ‘remake’ machine with good intent or not.
