Every year several movies releases worldwide. These movies can be a Hit, Super Hit & Blockbuster. In fact, they can go on to earn millions of dollars.
Bet it Avengers: Endgame or horror movies like IT. I don’t any of them will ever be perfect as some of the iconic movies such as “The Princess Bride”. Each one of them had some negative points (Major or Minor).
Now, what If I tell you there are some talks going related to the remake of 1987’s movie “The Princess Bride”? Interested, right? Besides, who wouldn’t be?
Coming back to the post, here I will address all the rumors related to the remake of The Princess Bride & what fans have to say about the movie. So, let’s proceed:
What 1987’s Movie is all about?
Are you one of those who don’t know anything about the movie? Well, then, for you I will proceed by telling you about the premise of the movie.
Well, the movie tells one of the best love stories that I have ever heard in my life. In the movie, Buttercup & Westley are the two main protagonists of the show. Throughout the movie, their love is tested by various hardships including the planning & plotting of main antagonist Humperdinck.
But in the end, it’s true that Love prevails everything. In fact, the movie ends with a happy ending between Buttercup & Westly.
The Princess Bride Remake Rumors
Now, coming back to the rumors, Tony Vinciquerra, CEO Sony Entertainment video said in a post on uproxx.com,” Very famous people whose names I won’t use, but they want to redo The Princess Bride.”
Although, the remake is not confirmed yet but it gets some attention from the fans who have watched the romantic movie in their childhood or in recent days.
In case, you don’t know, the movie is based on a novel by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman.
The Princess Bride Box Office Earnings
In terms of earning, The Princess Bride failed miserably on the Box office. In fact, with too many efforts, total earning somehow doubled its budget.
But still, the movie underperformed as per the expectation. However, soon after the movie released on Home video & Television airings, people started falling in the masterpiece.
Now, it’s been almost 29 years & still, fans of the movie would always want to see the movie. In fact, I would never say No to watching the movie.
Twitter Reaction on The Princess Bride 2.0
As soon as the rumors started to spread out, Twitter users started tweeting about the movie. Here’s what the twitter users have to say:
1. Wife of Count Rugen
Oh really? Well, I married the six fingered man, obviously why we have stayed together for 35 years and there is only ONE The Princess Bride and it’s William Goldman and @robreiner’s. “Life is pain highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something!” https://t.co/hv33UIZKN3

2. Not Agreed with the Remake
Abso-fucking-lutely NOT. Do NOT. NO. Just because the Dark Crystal is doing well doesn’t mean you can redo nor does it mean classics NEED to be redone. The Princess Bride is perfect as she is. https://t.co/HuTujU7tYn
