Ladies, we all lived that moment in our childhood when we used to sit in front of our TV to watch Princess Diaries and dream that one day we’ll find out that we’re a real-life princess too, right? Well, growing up that did not happen. But guess what? A new Princess Diaries movie is in works! So, if not in real, we can live that moment again in reel life. Exciting, right?
If reports are to be believed, Disney is developing a third ‘The Princess Diaries’ movie that will be a continuation of the Anne Hathaway films, though the actress hasn’t yet signed on. Aadrita Mukerji, who has written for shows like Supergirl and Reacher, is reportedly writing the screenplay.
Even though Disney hasn’t confirmed the news, it is believed that Anne Hathaway will play Mia Thermopolis, an American high school student who learns she’s the princess of Genovia and undergoes royalty training from her grandmother Queen Clarisse Renaldi played by Julie Andrews, in the 2001 original. Talking about the film in an interview this year, Julie Andrews said, “I might just be a little too old a granny for it, I don’t know.” She added, “It depends what the story is, and if they can come up with something, that would be wonderful. But if not, there will be other things.”
Garry Marshall, who died in 2016, also directed the 2004 sequel The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement. The films are based on the book series by Meg Cabot.
