Disney Plans Broadway Adapation of The Princess Bride

watch disney movies online freeDisney Theatrical Productions announced Monday that it is currently working on a stage adaptation of The Princess Bride, best known as the 1987 feature by the same title that starred Cary Elwes (see the story on  io9.com). This isn't the first time the classic comedy adventure has been adapted to a different medium; as you may or may not be aware, The Princess Bride actually started out as a book by William Goldman, written in 1973. However, it was not until the theatrical release that this title really gained a following.

Containing witty dialogue and memorable scenes, the movie adaptation has since gone on to become a cult classic. Along with its charming storyline, the film's cast was filled who actors who were outstanding in their own right, such as Billy Crystal, Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Chris Sarandon, and of course André the Giant. This of course begs the question: could such a cast ever be replaced or replicated on stage? Especially someone like André the Giant?

Also, it's currently unknown if this adaptation will be a musical or play, although, this being Disney, I'd wager on it being a musical.

What do you think? Would you even be interested in seeing such an adaptation in the first place?
