A third Princess Diaries movie seemed like a done deal last year when director Garry Marshall, who helmed the first two films, confirmed he was in talks with Disney to make it happen. Then Garry died unexpectedly over the summer, crushing fans’ hopes of another film for the beloved franchise.
Now it looks like Princess Mia Thermopolis may open her journal again after all. In an interview with BuzzFeed this week, star Julie Andrews — the Queen of Genovia herself! — revealed that production on a Princess Diaries threequel might soon move forward.
“There’s talk about it,” she said. “And [Anne Hathaway]’s very keen to do it. I would very willingly and happily do it.”
In fact, the Genovia royals seem more committed than ever because the film could serve as an homage to Garry Marshall.
“I think we might do it in honor of him,” Julie explained. “Annie had an idea that she wanted to pursue about it, and I’m all for it.”
Basically, Queen Clarisse Renaldi is DOWN.
Soooo can Anne Hathaway maybe throw us a bone and share her plot ideas? After waiting so long, we need a little something to hold us over until the actual movie!
Still, fans must never forget Queen Renaldi’s famous words.
