               As Atreyu turns a corner he sees a painting of a wolf, then
               he turns another corner and sees the wolf hiding in a smaller
               opening. It growls wildly at Atreyu as he approaches.

                                     G'MORK
                         If you come any closer I will rip
                         you to shreds.

               Atreyu squats down where he's at and looks at the wolf.

                                     ATREYU
                         Who are you?

                                     G'MORK
                         I am G'mork. And you, whoever you
                         are, can have the honor of being my
                         last victim.

                                     ATREYU
                         I will not die easily. I am a warrior.

                                     G'MORK
                              (G'mork laughs)
                         Brave warrior, then fight the nothing.

                                     ATREYU
                         But I can't ! I can't get beyond the
                         boundaries of Fantasia.

               G'mork laughs and Atreyu grows angry.

                                     ATREYU (CONT'D)
                         What's so funny about that ?

                                     G'MORK
                         Fantasia has no boundaries.

               A storm grows closer to the city, slowly shaking it to pieces…
               Rocks fall here and there.

                                     ATREYU
                         That's not true. You're lying.

                                     G'MORK
                         Foolish boy. Don't you know anything
                         about Fantasia?

                         It's the world of human fantasy.
                         Every part ,every creature of it, is
                         a piece of the dreams and hopes of
                         mankind.

                         Therefore, it has no boundaries.

               There's a crash and more rocks fall.

                                     ATREYU
                         But why is Fantasia dying then?

                                     G'MORK
                         Because people have begun to lose
                         their hopes and forget their dreams.
                         So the nothing grows stronger.

                                     ATREYU
                         What is the nothing ?!

                                     G'MORK
                         It's the emptiness that's left. It's
                         like a despair, destroying this world.
                         And I have been trying to help it.

                                     ATREYU
                         But why?

                                     G'MORK
                         Because people who have no hopes are
                         easy to control.

                         And whoever has control has the power.

               A large crash shakes the ground. Atreyu loses his balance
               for a moment, but quickly regains it and turns back to the
               wolf. He gives him a cold look then asks him,

                                     ATREYU
                         Who are you really ?

                                     G'MORK
                         I am the servant of the power behind
                         the nothing.

                         I was sent to kill the only one who
                         could have stopped the nothing. I
                         lost him in the Swamps of Sadness.
                         His name was Atreyu.

               The ground shakes and Atreyu falls over backward. He grabs a
               long, sharp piece of broken stone and stands up. He then
               yells at G'mork.

                                     ATREYU
                         If we're about to die anyway, I'd
                         rather die fighting.

                         Come for me G'mork ! I am Atreyu!
