If you can’t get enough of The Princess Bride, you’ll eventually have another way to enjoy it. Disney Theatrical Productions is planning to develop a stage production based on the 1973 novel and 1987 screenplay by William Goldman. I hope every word of that means what I think it means.
They haven’t decided whether it will be a musical yet, but I’d be completely okay with that option. Alan Horn, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, pushed the deal and though they haven’t announced the creative team yet, I bet they’re cautious with turning over the keys. The story is too beloved for them not to be careful with it. Whoever they bring on board and whatever the format of the play, I’m just glad they’re going this route instead of rebooting the film.
