I grew up with the movie The Princess Bride and still love to watch it. Now I can share a new twist on the movie with my daughter. Disney Theatrical Productions is moving forward with their plans to make a stage adaptation of the novel and hit movie from 1987.
Disney Theatrical Productions confirmed that a new musical based on the novel is being worked on. An adaptation previously in the works fizzled out in 2007, but Disney is committed to bringing the story to life.
The Princess Bride follows a young farm boy, Wesley, as he tries to rescue his beloved Princess Buttercup from an awful prince that she’s set to marry. This family-friendly show is filled with comedy and adventure, and is sure to be a hit! There’s no word on a production timeline, but we will fill you in as we know more.
Disney is also working on a stage adaptation of Hercules which runs at the Public Theater’s Delacorte Theater August 31 – September 8.
