Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles: It’s all coming to Quibi starting Monday.
The recreation was secretly filmed by an inconceivable roster of celebrities on their phones while in self-isolation, who will trade off roles across The Princess Bride‘s numerous iconic sequences. Among the stars who will appear are (deep breath) Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Common and Tiffany Haddish, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, Hugh Jackman, Andy Serkis, Keegan-Michael Key, Elijah Wood, Beanie Feldstein, Jack Black, Diego Luna, Taika Waititi, Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz, Patton Oswalt, Josh Gad, original Princess Bride director Rob Reiner, and Fred Savage, who will briefly reprise his role as the grandson who has the story read to him. (That’s not even a complete roster; some of the players are being kept under wraps for now.)
The homemade fan film will feature such charming touches as a corgi subbing in for a Rodent of Unusual Size, Lego figures used in crowd scenes or for dangerous stunts, and gender-bending casting (such as Jonas playing Buttercup and Turner playing Westley). The project will also benefit World Central Kitchen, chef José Andrés’ charity that has been helping provide meals to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
