Bastian Bux, a preteen bookworm, finds a curious title and decides to squirrel himself away and read it. As he reads, he finds himself literally drawn into the story of the world Fantasia. The mighty luckdragon Falkor aids in the battle to save Fantasia from the devastating force of the Nothing.
The plot stemming from the child's imagination isn't a new one, but it is well executed in the movie. The target age of makes the lack of character depth a bit more forgivable, especially because the movie is entertaining. That being said, the graphics for Falkor left much to be desired; he seems more like a fuzzy, flying dog than a dragon.
