For the select few who haven’t see The Princess Bride, the film is based on the award-winning Novel of the same name by William Goldman, and centers on a beautiful young woman and her one true love, who must find her after a long separation and save her. They must battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with each other.

Released in 1987, the film stars Cary Elwes (Robin Hood: Men in Tights) as Wesley, Mandy Patinkin (Criminal Minds) as Inigo Montoya, Robin Wright (Wonder Woman) as the Princess Bride, Wallace Shawn (Toy Story films) as Vizzini, André the Giant as Fezzik, with Fred Savage (The Wonder Years) and Peter Falk (Columbo) as the Grandson and Grandfather.

The film was a some-what modest success at the box office grossing $30 million domestically on a $16 million budget. The film became a cult classic after its release to the home video market. Back in 2019, reports surfaced that studio executives have heard whispers of Disney attempting a remake on the film, but as of now, that has yet to be confirmed.
