“Princess Bride” and “Romy and Michele” reunion photos by Art Streiber. Plus: Kwaku Alston’s “227” reunion photo.

As part of its special double “Reunions Issue,” Entertainment Weekly reunited the cast of the cultishly adored 1987 fantasy flick The Princess Bride, and senior associate photo editor Rachael Lieberman commissioned Art Streiber to shoot the accompanying photos. Art shot portraits of the film’s stars—Billy Crystal, Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Carol Kane, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, and Christopher Guest—plus a tableau of everyone in character.

Despite the more than 20 years that have passed, the chemistry among the actors was as excellent as ever—which is a rare thing indeed. Or, as Westley (Elwes) says to Buttercup (Wright) in the movie: “This is true love—you think this happens every day?” To read more about the reunion, and to watch interviews with the cast on the set of Art’s shoot, go here.

Elsewhere in “The Reunions Issue,” Art photographed Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino, who starred in the 1997 comedy Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, and Kwaku Alston shot a reunion portrait of the cast of 227Hal Williams, Marla Gibbs, Regina King, and Jackee Harry. Here’s a look:
