‘Princess Diaries’ May Return For Third Part, But Will Anne Hathaway?
Shine your scepter, press your preferred ballgown and make sure that tiara's on extra tight: The Princess Diaries may very well be making a comeback.
The movie series, which follows a young American girl who discovers she's part of a faraway European nation's royal family, is moving toward a third installation, The Tracking Board reported. The Princess Diaries 2, the franchise's most recent film, opened in 2004, and was written by Grey's Anatomy and Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes.
According to the site, there's no word on whether Anne Hathaway, who played protagonist Mia Thermopolis, will return as the accidental princess, but Disney seems to be moving forward either way.
The Princess Diaries, based on Meg Cabot's early-aughts book series, follows the reserved, wordy Thermopolis as she struggles to adjust to a life of etiquette lessons, highfalutin social engagements and buttoned-up chitchat. The first film earned more than $165 million at the box office and also starred Broadway legend and Sound of Music star Julie Andrews as Thermpolois' grandmother/reigning Queen of Genovia, Clarisse Renaldi.
When the sequel ended, a 21-year-old Mia had officially assumed the throne of Genovia as queen after successfully abolishing a law that said she had to be married in order to accept the distinction.
Think another visit to Genovia is worth the price of a ticket and extra large bucket of popcorn? Tell us if you'd see The Princess Diaries 3.
