The Princess Bride REDUX- Lightsaber Battle

The internet adds lightsabers to a lot of things, so it’s hard to accept that we’re only now seeing Inigo Montoya and The Dread Pirate Roberts’s duel from The Princess Bride with lightsabers. The pairing is perfect. How did this not happen years ago?

Extra bonus points for picking not only a charming movie, but a duel in which actual fencing techniques are used, possibly making this the most realistic lightsaber duel now in existence. (If you disagree, link or embed video, because a comment thread full of lightsaber duels is a wonderful thing.)
