"The NeverEnding Story" and "Ragnarok"
Mythology and Film/Theater Essay

When you first see the movie, "The NeverEnding Story" you may not see the similarities to the myth of Ragnarok, but they are there. In the NeverEnding story you have different creatures and humans working toward the same end, saving the childlike empress, and in turn saving there world, Fantasia. What you don't understand until the end is that not all their world will be saved, but what is saved is better than what was not saved. In the myth of "Ragnarok", you also have many different creatures and humans working toward the same end or "Ragnarok". Which is the end of one way of life but the beginning of a better way of life?
