The Princess Bride

Inconceivable as it sounds, the motion picture “The Princess Bride” appeared more than 30 years ago, in 1987, with Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin and Robin Wright as a few the rising stars in the cast. The movie was based on a novel written in 1973 by William Goldman. Famous lines include, “Have fun storming the castle!” “As you wish,” and “Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line.”

Disney Theatrical Productions has announced a musical stage version of “The Princess Bride” is in development.
