20 years later…and it’s still not ogre-done! A heroic and hilarious romantic adventure leading through the Fire Swamp, up the Cliffs of Insanity and emerging from the Pit of Despair, The Princess Bride 20th Anniversary Edition arrives on DVD November 13, 2007 from MGM Home Entertainment. Directed by Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally, Stand By Me) and executive produced by Norman Lear, The Princess Bride, based on the beloved book by William Goldman (two-time Academy AwardÒ winner for best screenplay, All The President’s Men, Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid), tells the tale of true love combining romance, action, adventure and comedy.
 
This timeless love story is a true family favorite that continues to captivate audiences of all ages. The Princess Bride 20th Anniversary Edition features some of Hollywood’s favorite stars including Golden Globe nominee Robin Wright Penn (Breaking And Entering, Forrest Gump) in her feature film debut, Cary Elwes (Georgia Rule, Ella Enchanted), Golden GlobeÒ nominee Billy Crystal (Analyze This, When Harry Met Sally). With a stellar supporting cast including Mandy Patinkin (“Chicago Hope”) as Inigo Montoya, Christopher Guest (This Is Spinal Tap) as Count Tyrone Rugen , the late Andre The Giant as Fezzik, Fred Savage (“The Wonder Years”) as the grandson and Peter Falk (“Columbo”) as the grandfather/narrator, The Princess Bride is one of the perennial top-selling titles in MGM’s catalogue.

In conjunction with the 20th anniversary of The Princess Bride, MGM Home Entertainment is launched the “Ode To Princess Bride” Sweepstakes, an online contest that provides an “editor’s tool kit” with video, audio and music from the film and allows fans to create their own “Ode to The Princess Bride” video trailer. The contest winners will be selected by Norman Lear and Rob Reiner. One grand prize winner will receive a state-of-the-art Panasonic Home Theater package and The Princess Bride script autographed by Rob Reiner and Norman Lear.

As a special added bonus, The Princess Bride 20th Anniversary Edition DVD features “The Official Princess Bride DVD Game.” Produced by Worldwide Biggies, the game leaves behind the simple text-based, slideshow nature of most DVD games, and transforms the film’s favorite live action actors into fully animated characters in a graphic novel type setting.

“The Official Princess Bride DVD Game” begins during Episode Two after Vizzini, Montoya and Fezzik kidnap Princess Buttercup. Players will assume the role of their favorite characters in a series of interactive challenges and will be rewarded with gems for completing an activity or for receiving an exceptional score. New content, extras and gems can be redeemed at www.princessbridegame.com.

From celebrated director Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally) and Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman (Chaplin) comes "an enchanting fantasy" (Time) filled with adventure, romance and plenty of "good-hearted fun" (Roger Ebert)!
