Falkor is a character from The NeverEnding Story. I never read the book but I grew up watching the first two NeverEnding Story movies, and that’s where I first met Falkor. He is a dragon, specifically a luckdragon. That means he’s a lucky dragon. He’s more similar in style to Oriental dragons as opposed to European-style dragons. He has an elongated body with a long shaggy coat and has the ability to fly. He looks kind of like a gigantic dog, but he’s not a dog. He’s a dragon. A luckdragon, remember? I always wanted Falkor to be real. In fact, that was my main wish growing up. Whenever I saw a shooting star, or blew out the candles on my birthday cake, or successfully held my breath for the length of the tunnel, my wish was always for Falkor. I realize now that I was being naïve. Falkor isn’t real and I wasted a lot of wishes.
