The Story - The NeverEnding Story III - Netflix

The NeverEnding Story III: Escape from Fantasia (also known as: The NeverEnding Story III: Return to Fantasia) is a 1994 film, the second sequel to the fantasy film The NeverEnding Story (following the first sequel, The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter). It starred Jason James Richter as the Bastian Bux, and Jack Black in one of his early roles as the school bully, Slip. This film used the characters from Michael Ende's novel The Neverending Story (1979), but introduced a new storyline. The special creature effects were provided by Jim Henson's Creature Shop. The movie has no connection to the source material of the book beyond the usage of characters from it.

The Story - Reception - Netflix

Variety stated: “The NeverEnding Story lives up to its title in the worst way possible with this third outing, a charmless, desperate reworking of the franchise that might just as well be subtitled 'Bastian Goes to High School.'”
