It may have been 25 years since Cary Elwes, 49, played the incomparable Westley in the 1987 Rob Reiner modern classic, The Princess Bride, also starring a legendary cast of Robin Wright, Peter Falk, Peter Cook, Fred Savage, Wallace Shawn, Christopher Guest, Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Sarandon, Carol Kane and Billy Crystal, but the film and all its high praise are far from forgotten by Elwes, even after all this time.

The 25th Anniversary edition of The Princess Bride is due out today, and it will feature a slew of special features, including a segment called "True Love: The Princess Bride Phenomenon — A Conversation with Rob Reiner, Cary Elwes and Robin Wright," in which the famed cast reuites to talk about their memories from the set.

Elwes, who has since starred in such films as Days of Thunder and Saw and will next be seen in David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot on NBC, also spoke out at a fan screening a few months ago about his experiences on The Princess Bride set so many years ago, revealing that, among other secrets, he had never fenced before filming his skilled swordfighting scene with Patinkin, for which he and the cast were also determined to hold the longest onscreen record, reports Entertainment Weekly. In addtion, Elwes revealed that he hasn't seen The Princess Bride since its 1987 premiere, but he intends on showing it to his young daughter when she gets a little older.

The 25th Anniersary edition of The Princess Bride is being released today.
