Disney Theatrical Productions Announces Plans to Bring ‘The Princess Bride’ to the Stage

It seems that a stage production of The Princess Bride is not so inconceivable after all.

Disney Theatrical Productions has announced plans to develop a stage production based on the 1973 novel by William Goldman, which was later turned into the 1987 cult-favorite film of the same name.

The film starred Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, Billy Crystal, and Carol Kane.

Goldman wrote the screenplay for the film based on his novel, and had collaborated with Tony Award-winning composer Adam Guettel (Light in the Piazza) on a musical adaptation of The Princess Bride. That project ended in 2007.

Disney has not yet announced whether this new adaptation would be a musical.

Alan Horn, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, was responsible for the deal.

In a statement Goldman said: "I am thrilled that the next chapter in the life of The Princess Bride will unfold on the stage. With Alan Horn, Thomas Schumacher and his team at Disney Theatrical Productions leading the way, Buttercup, Westley and all of Florin are in the best of hands."

I'm just not sure what I think of this story. I adore The Princess Bride, and I'm not sure that I want Disney to touch it. I'm really okay if it's just it's own little movie out there hangin' around without the Disneyfication. I have noticed though that in the TV show 'Once Upon A Time' the writers have Hook saying the "As you wish" line to Emma.
