Westley and Buttercup Reunite for a Big Announcement

Cary Elwes and Robin Wright got together via video call to make a big Disney+ announcement.

Can you believe "The Princess Bride" entertained us for the first time 33 years ago? We fell in love with the characters Westley and Buttercup played by Cary Elwes and Robin Wright back in 1987. The movie has stood the test of time. Entertaining generation after generation with love, laughter, and adventure. 
Several years ago I got a chance to talk to Elwes about his book "As You Wish: Inconceivable Tails from the Making of The Princess Bride," which you can hear  here . In the interview you can hear some of the stories revealed in the book like the time Andre The Giant insisted Elwes take his ATV for a spin and it didn't work out so well for the lead actor.
In 2019, some rumors started swirling about the possibility of a remake to which Elwes responded via tweet, "There's a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one."
I completely agree with Elwes. That's why I am so happy to hear the announcment Wright and Elwes just made on disneyplus Instagram. The two got together on a video call to announce that May 1st "The Princess Bride" will be streaming on Disney+!! I can't wait to watch it with my kids.

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
