Directed by Giles Walker and Adam Weissman, Tales From the Neverending Story: The Beginning is essentially a made-for-television retelling of the original Neverending Story, which was directed by Wolfgang Peterson in 1984. Mark Rendall stars as Bastian, a young boy who suddenly finds himself in Fantasia, the fantasy world in the mysterious book he is reading. It is revealed that Fantasia is dying because of an evil force called The Nothing. It's up to Bastian and the heroic Atreyu (Tyler Hynes) to save Fantasia and its Childlike Empress (Audrey Gardiner).
