Despite it's title, The Neverending Story did indeed end, leaving us with an aching sense of nostalgia and a hunger for an offering more substantial than the disappointing Neverending Story II.

While we might not have been promised a remake just yet, if something comes along I hope it's as gritty as this awesome fan art from Nicolas Francoeur at Eidos Montréal. The talented artist has gone for a much more grown-up and darkly atmospheric reimagining of our favorite Neverending story characters, although they will be hard pressed to make anything as harrowing as Artax sinking into the swamp of sadness...

Atreyu & Artax

Atreyu grew up with a fondness for body art and an even more noble steed.

--------------------------------------

Falkor

Less dog and more dragon makes Falkor a formidable badass! He would probably be less comfortable to ride with that scaly back though!

--------------------------------------

The Empress

I always thought The Empress should look more regal, and this Amazonian meets Grecian design has certainly sorted that out!

--------------------------------------

Gluckuck

I'm not sure exactly what is riding Gluckuck, but I like it! Also, is this really the name of the racing snail? If so, my childish mind totally missed that one!

--------------------------------------

The Rockbiter

If anything, this is slightly less creepy than the Jabba the Hut/Boulder heap in the original movie!

--------------------------------------

Gmork

If this thing is any more soul destroying, a lot of parents might want to order mattress savers for their kids.

--------------------------------------

Morla

Well, you can't really look more "allergic to youth" than this lichen covered ancient.

--------------------------------------

Whooshwoozool

This face gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'bat out of hell.'

Poll

Would you like a Neverending Story remake to be even darker?
