Day 29: Gmork: Most usually don’t know his name, just that super scary, evil wolf from the 1984 film The Neverending Story that haunted their childhood. Gmork is a servant of the Nothing, tasked with hunting down and killing Atreyu. Atreyu is the only one that can stop the Nothing from destroying Fantasia. Gmork loses his prey in the Swamps of Sadness, failing his task. The two meet for the first and final time in Spook City and discuss the Nothing, Atreyu hiding his identity.
The film is adapted loosely from a 1979 German novel by Michael Ende.
Did you know: The film itself actually “ends” about halfway through the book.
