Put the date in your diary, The Princess Bride is coming to Disney Plus in May.


The 1987 movie follows Westley, a farm hand (Cary Elwes) who goes on a quest to rescue Princess Buttercup (Robin Wright), his one true love.

The movie has a cult following for its quirk romantic take on the stereotypical love story.

Disney got both Cary Elwes and Robin Wright to announce the news from their homes while on lockdown.

Just in case you missed it The Princess Bride is coming to Disney Plus on 1st May.

"Are you bored yet?" Elwes asked Wright in the clip.

"No! You?" he jokes back. "But if I was stuck in front of my TV, I could think of some real fun things to watch like that Princess Bride movie we made together."

"Ummmm is that on again?" Wright asks before they revealed the date.
