    As a child my wife and I's favorite movie was the Neverending story. After watching it a million times we need to know something.

    As Bastien is reading in the school, and the princess neeeds to just "SAY MY NAME" and it's actually Sebastians mom's name. Well there's thunder and lighting and noise so they drowned out the name.

    Do any of you film buff's know what her name was supposed to be. Pleas ethis has been killing us for years!

    I am not sure myself of the top of my head, but can you not check the English subtitles if you have the DVD ?

    Just a thought

    He screams Moon Child in the book

    You really should read the book BTW, the movie is at best the first third, and the little bit I've seen of "part 2 and 3) have been outright fabrication

    I always thought the movie to be the first half of the book.

    The book, BTW, is wonderful, and better than the movie. Make sure you get a copy with the different color text. I'm not sure if they are all that way, but that's the way to read the book...

    Yeah putting the subtitles on it says "Inaudible screaming" and "Thunder" So its purposely not in the movie.
    so you guys are pretty sure its moon child huh? odd. and ill be sure to check out the book.
    AWESOME MOVIE. the followups bit though.

    It is because of that movie were probally naming our child sebastian,[​IMG]

    He screams "Moon Child", like in the book. If you listen closely, you can hear it.
