How can a story NEVER end?

Never is a long time!

I didn't realize they were remaking this movie.  Not sure I like the real world shots, and some of the scenes looked like they were from Avatar and Lord of the Rings.  I guess it's going to be more about the story, than cutting edge new graphics ;)

Let's hope, right?

Remind me what this story is about? It does seem very... Hobbit-y.

The majority of the story takes place in the parallel world of Fantastica (Phantásien in the original German version; referred to as Fantasia in the films), a world being destroyed by the Nothing, a mysterious force. The first protagonist is a young warrior who is asked by the Empress of Fantastica to set off and find a way to stop the Nothing; the other protagonist is a boy from the real world, a reader of a novel with the same title, for whom the story gradually becomes more and more realistic.  From wiki.

By the way, saw Desolation of Smaug.  By the end of the movie I was rooting for Smaug.
