In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Rob Reiner's seminal classic 'Stand by Me' was released on Blu-ray for the first time this week. The movie, set in the 1950s, tells a bittersweet tale of four adolescent friends who go off into the woods in search of a rumored dead body that may or not be a missing young boy they know. They must also find this body before the bullying Ace Merrill (Kiefer Sutherland) and his gang, the Cobras, get to it. What follows is a poignant coming-of-age tale about childhood adventures in the summer and the pain of growing up.

'Stand by Me' was an immediate success, touching a nerve with audiences young and old. To celebrate the film's 25th anniversary, Moviefone spoke with director Rob Reiner and several of the film's stars: Wil Wheaton (narrator Gordie Lachance), Corey Feldman (oddball Teddy Duchamp) and Casey Siemaszko (the bullying Billy Tessio). They shared their memories on the once-in-a-lifetime Oregon shoot, the adventures they had off-camera and the global impact of 'Stand by Me.'
