Neverending Story
Warner Bros. Pictures

Fantasy movies have been around since the beginning of filmmaking, but for some reason, they became Hollywood's bread and butter during the 1980s. Odds are, if you have a favorite fantasy movie, it was released between the years of 1980 and 1981, which makes that decade particularly magical for the genre.

Fantasy films cover a wide array of sub-genres, as there are sword & sorcery, low fantasy, epic or high fantasy, dark fantasy, fairy tales, fables, magical realism, and even superhero fiction falls within the genre (not on this quiz though!).

Fantasy films have been such a huge part of our viewing lives; there's a good chance you've seen every movie represented on this list. Whether it's to do with the tale of King Arthur in Excalibur or the flight of Bastion atop his Luck Dragon in The Neverending Story, these are films most people have seen at least once in their lives.

Hopefully, you're a fan of the genre because these 15 questions are some real doozies! You will need to know a lot about films like The Princess Bride, Highlander, and more if you expect to do well on this quiz, so good luck, and don't forget to post your scores on your social media to see which of your friends knows the most about 80's fantasy films!
