Inconceivable!!!  The cast of The Princess Bride reunited after 25 years.  I shed a tear seeing the small picture of Fezzik aka the late André the Giant in the bottom right corner of the reunion pic. Also the picture of the late Peter Falk (Grandpa/Narrator) is in the center of the group.

Lmao, okay, so i know that The Princess Bride is a p popular AU to do, and i think there is already one for voltron floating around somewhere, but i wanted to put my own thought in.

so:

  • Lance as Buttercup and Keith as Wesley - tbh Buttercups personality at the begining of the film seems to fit lance p well, although I dont imagine Keith would be quite as placid abt it as wesley. Pining!Keith tho.
  • Instead of Keith going off to seek his fortune so he can marry lance, he’s heard some information pointing him in the direction of his mother, and Lance tells him to go for it.
  • Lance gets the news that the Dread Pirate Kolvian on the ship Marmoa has attacked the ship Keith was on, etc etc.
  • After five years, Prince Lotor of the Galran Kingdom has heard of Lance’s beauty, and tries to get Lance to agree to marry him. It takes a lot of manipulation on his part, but eventually Lance agrees, though he makes it clear it isn’t because he truly loves Lotor.
  • Pidge is Inigo (’You killed my father, prepare to die’) and Hunk is Fezzik. I’m thinking Iverson as vizzini, bc then you have the dislike of his character, but he leaves soon 
  • it goes pretty much the same way as in the movie. Haggar is Count Regan, Random druid no.1 as The Albino
  • Shiro is Miracle Max and Alura is Valerie (but less bickery) I just think it’d be funny that ‘Humiliating Prince Lotor’ is the worthy cause for the miracle
  • Fuckin Coran as the Clergy man.

Thats all ive got but i just thought of it and was like: ‘That is a good idea’

I haven’t stopped thinking about an all women Princess Bride remake since seeing @andhumanslovedstories post about it!!!
Anyway here’s my quick take so I can stop thinking about it

Jessica Henwick as Westley
Vivian Oparah as Buttercup
Valerie Adams as Fezzick
Alina Serban as Inigo Montoya
Lillias White as the Grandma
Teeka Duplessis as the Granddaughter

Pearl Mackie as Princess Humperdinck
Sarita Choudhury as Count Rugen
Miriam Margolyes as Miracle Max
Fiona Shaw as Valerie
Rhea Perlman as Vizzini

EDIT: In any remake, it would be very important to give Buttercup a bigger role imo… make her as cool and heroic as Westley: the movie’s named after her after all!!!

I wouldn’t have her doing combat or anything, I think her role as a normal person is important-

But imagine a remake that makes Buttercup the main audience insert and shows most of the action from her POV and gives us more of her inner struggle, and highlights her smarts, loyalty, kindness, and courage alongside Westley’s dashing exploits…

IMAGINE A PRINCESS BRIDE AU

• Marinette living on a farm in the country and falling in love with Adrien the farm boy
• Adrien going off to seek his fortune only to be killed by the infamous pirate Chat Noir and Mari being heartbroken
• CHLOÉ AS PRINCE(SS) HUMPERDINCK BECAUSE SHE’S GAY FOR LADYBUG
• Hawkmoth as Count Rugen of course being super sinister
• MIRACLE MAX AND VALERIE AS NINO AND ALYA ACTING LIKE AN OLD MARRIED COUPLE
• “LIAR! LIAAAAAAR!”
• Mari and Adrien fighting their way through the fire swamp
• MARI PUSHING CHAT DOWN A HILL AND THEN PANICKING WHEN HE YELLS “ASSSSS YOUUUU WIIIIIIIISSSSHHH” AND FALLING AFTER HIM
• Not sure where Vizzini, Indigo and Fezzik fit into all this
• IMAGINE A PRINCESS BRIDE AU

“Has it got any sports in it?”

“Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…”

“It doesn’t sound too bad. I’ll try to stay awake.”

“Oh thank you. Your vote of confidence is overwhelming.”
