Fans of Princess Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, Princess of Genovia, can rejoice! There is finally a third Princess Diaries movie on the way, according to Hollywood Reporter — and it will hopefully feature some returning talent!
The movie will still focus on the world of Princess Mia (which originated in the Meg Cabot book series), so it is not a reboot with an entirely new cast, which many Genovia and Princess Mia fans will be thrilled to learn (even though Genovia does seem to be rife with opportunities for spin-offs).
Anne Hathaway, the actress who played Princess Mia, is not officially on the cast list for the third Princess Diaries movie yet. However, the actress has made it clear in the past that she is interested!
Dame Julie Andrews, on the other hand, made it clear recently that she didn’t feel comfortable returning for another movie now that the first two movies’ director, Garry Marshall, has passed away. Perhaps this third movie will change the Mary Poppins star’s mind, though, and we will see a reunion for Mia and her grandmother Queen Clarisse!
Actress Raven-Symoné, who played a fellow royal in the second movie (which came out in 2004 and was called Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement), actually raved about her role in the film not too long ago.
If Raven-Symoné is back, perhaps Disney princess Mandy Moore (who played the mean girl Lana in the first 2001 Princess Diaries movie) will be back as well!
Aadrita Mukerji is working on the Princess Diaries 3 script for Disney, and we will keep a close eye on any news relating to the third film! You know what this means, Princess Diaries fans: it’s time for a Princess Diaries marathon to prepare!
