In the age of a global pandemic and social distancing, traditional production methods are simply not feasible. Luckily, the producers for this remake had a few tricks up their sleeves and skillfully employed unconventional shooting methods in order to safely bring about this iconic adaptation. The movie was filmed from actors’ respective homes, via their phones, and is set to debut tonight exclusively on the new streaming service Quibi, debuting two chapters at a time.

Typically, remakes are dangerous territory, especially when it comes to an ageless, celebrated classic like The Princess Bride. This is no small feat! However, this reboot has an extremely promising cast: Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman, Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, Tiffany Haddish, Keegan-Michael Key, and Josh Gad. If this wasn’t exciting enough, Fred Savage, who played the Grandson in the original version, will be joining the cast and reclaiming his iconic role one last time. And, the cherry on top: Quibi has donated $1 million to support World Central Kitchen, an organization that strives to provide meals to struggling families amid the global pandemic.
An epic battle between a toy lightsaber and an umbrella awaits you.
