The Princess Bride: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray

Posted June 28, 2012 06:58 PM by Josh Katz

20th Century FoxIn October, Twentieth Century Fox and MGM Home Entertainment will bring the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Princess Bride to Blu-ray. Director Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally) and writer William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) have applied a gently self-referential tone to this fantasy adventure, which centers on two star-crossed lovers (Cary Elwes, Saw, and Robin Wright, Forrest Gump) trying to reconnect even as dark forces conspire against them.

From Fox's official synopsis:

"Scale the cliffs of insanity, battle rodents of unusual size, face torture in the pit of despair, and join Princess Buttercup (Wright) and Westley (Elwes) on their spell-binding journey to find true love...A classic fairy tale complete with heroes, villains, trickery, mockery, and death-defying miracles, The Princess Bride captured audiences young and old with its...memorable dialogue, enchanting story line, and bewitching characters...[and it features] a cast that includes Mandy Patinkin (Homeland), Andre the Giant (Conan the Destroyer), Chris Sarandon (Dog Day Afternoon), Wallace Shawn (Vanya on 42nd Street), Christopher Guest (This is Spinal Tap), Peter Falk (Wings of Desire), Carol Kane (Scrooged), and Billy Crystal (City Slickers)."

Fox's Blu-ray presents the film in its 1.85:1 original aspect ratio alongside a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track and the following supplements:
  • All-new, two-part True Love: The Princess Bride Phenomenon retrospective documentary
  • Audio commentaries:
    • Director Rob Reiner
    • Screenwriter William Goldman
  • Behind-the-scenes featurettes:
    • As You Wish: The Story of The Princess Bride
    • The Princess Bride: The Untold Tales
    • The Art of Fencing
    • Fairy Tales and Folklore
    • Miraculous Makeup
  • Cary Elwes' video diary
  • The Dread Pirate Roberts: Greatest Pirate of the Seven Seas feature
  • Love is Like a Storybook feature
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Easter eggs
The 25th Anniversary Edition of The Princess Bride is expected to street on October 2nd.

Inconceivable! I just bought this last Black Friday for $5! At least it wasn't full price so I don't feel as bad about double dipping...

I just don't see any point in releasing this, other than a cash-in. I'm more than satisfied with the disc I got back in 2009.

Not worth the one new special feature. I'll hold onto my copy and wait for the inevitable 30th, 35th, 40th, 45th, or 50th anniversary releases.

how about a steelbook with the left one as the cover, and the right as the back, without the writing. That would be pretty sweet. Might have to change the red though

In the DVD days, I always had to have all of the special features for every DVD I owned, which included buying this movie two or three times. Thankfully, in the BD era I've come down from that, and only worry about that with a select few of my favorites, so I'll just hold on to my current BD.

I like the film, but not enough to repurchase just for extra fluff that I'll only watch once. The film itself is the only part of the package worth repeat viewings and thus the only part of the package worth investing in an upgrade. Either studios don't get that, or it's far cheaper to create extras than genuinely update the film, which, as great as it looks on BD already, there's still clear room for improvement.

Henge86 & Nightman04 - I totally agree a SteelBook treatment would be awesome.

So, I'm a bit confused on the covers - is that going to be a slipcover? Or digibook??

The most important thing for me is A/V quality and which cut of a film I'm getting, extras I can do without, so considering I have the first release, this one is a definite pass.

The original BD cover is better than either of the new options.

Basically full price for the "new" documentary. I love this movie, but I'm not going to buy a new copy just for a documentary.

I haven't upgraded this yet. I might go for this version, when it hits the $9 mark.
