Can you I.D. which of these fantastical '80s movies are based on books?

Were these beloved movies adapted from novels?

The '80s gave the world some of the best entertainment around. Evolving technology in video effects, costuming, makeup and the like were giving creators the ability to make the characters and creatures of films more realistic than ever. This also opened up a whole new opportunity for book adaptation and bringing mystical and made-up beings to life. Stories that existed only on pages were put on the silver screen to delight and entrance audiences, expanding the reach of these well-written masterpieces to entirely new demographics. Not every adventure was based on a book, however; plenty of original plots and storylines were imagined as well. 

In an age where cinema and literature collide, it's time to test your knowledge of these magical journeys. Can you identify which of these fantastical '80s movies are adapted from books?

  1. The NeverEnding Story (1984)
  2. The Dark Crystal (1982)
