Yes friends its actually happening. Director Garry Marshall confirms the upcoming sequal in an interview. Princess Diaries 3 is on its way with Anne Hathaway regaining her advance role of Princess Mia Thermopolis.
Garry Marshall says Hathaway has recently expressed interest in returning to the project.
“I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan,” Marshall told. “Anne Hathaway is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it.”
The first Princess Diaries told the story of a shy San Francisco teenager named Mia Thermopolis. She goes from ordinary to extraordinary, when she discovers that she’s a princess and the heir to the crown of a small country of Genovia. With the help of her grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi (played by Julie Andrews), she was groomed and trained in the art of refinement to become a royal. The second film, subtitled The Royal Engagement, was all about how Mia would lose the crown if she weren’t married within the month. It ended with her giving Parliament a piece of her mind and changing the law.
No word on a production start for the third “Princess Diaries,” as of yet.
