Last week, Disney revealed their line-up for Disney+ in May including “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” and a new behind-the-scenes look at “The Mandalorian.” Now, there’s one more surprise coming to the service: The Princess Bride. Stars of the 1987 fantasy adventure, Cary Elwes and Robin Wright revealed that the fan favorite will be joining the service on May 1st.
In this fairy tale, the beautiful Princess Buttercup (Wright) and the dashing Westley (Elwes) must overcome staggering odds to find happiness amid six-fingered swordsmen, murderous princes, Sicilians and rodents of unusual size. But even death can’t stop these true lovebirds from triumphing.
Disney+ launched on Nov. 12 at $6.99 a month after a 7-Day Free Trial, nearly half the price of Netflix ($12.99). The service includes four simultaneous streams, unlimited downloads, 4K streaming across a range of devices, including Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, iOS, Android and Web.
The streaming service has a deep catalog including the entire Disney Vault, Pixar and Star Wars libraries, MCU films like “Avengers: Endgame,” and the entire 30 seasons of The Simpsons.
