“The actors will trade off roles throughout scenes, each paying homage to The Princess Bride in their own unique way,” the outlet reports.
Wow, how epic is that?! So when can you watch it? Well, beginning June 29, Quibi will release chapters of the movie every day for two weeks, and we can’t wait!
As fans know, the original movie followed a guy named Westley as he tried to find and save his one true love — Princess Buttercup — after she is kidnapped. They both had to battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with each other. With sword fights and monsters, the movie was definitely a roller coaster of a ride, and we are so excited to see how they remade it, all from the comfort of their own homes!
