OMFG. I’m debuting this print at ECCC ~today~ in Seattle! I’ll list it on etsy soon, too. I adore this movie, and actually adore the book even more–but I’ll do a separate poster for the book, because it is sooo different and shouldn’t be in 80s-vision.
The saddest moment of my childhood was right here…I used to hate this movie all because of this scene. As I got older and was able to remember that Artex lives in the end when Bastian makes his wish I was ok, but I still cry like a baby when Atreyu can’t save her and she just looks like she’s given up. The horse seeming ready to die is just too much.
