Is 'Princess Diaries 3' Happening? Author Gives Update on Potential Film!

Sixteen years ago, the Princess Diaries starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews hit theaters. Years later, rumors swirled that a third movie was in the works and we’re here with an update!

Author of the series Meg Cabot spoke with EW and confirmed there is interest and a script in place, but not much beyond that.

“So, who knows? [It] could happen, as we say,” Meg said. As for what the plot could be, Meg added, “I would love to sit and talk about [it], but I can’t. I’m not allowed. But it’s really more following the movie than the books, so if she – the last version I read, she definitely did not find out that she has a biracial younger sister … which I personally would’ve thought was hilarious, but that was not the direction they were going.”

“Actually, the one thing I’m really hoping for is a musical, so I hope we have a Broadway musical … obviously, somebody has to write the music and lyrics, and I’m not gonna do that because that’s not where my talents lie,” she added. “So I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that some day we’re gonna get one of those. That would be so fun.”

'Princess Diaries 3' Update: 'There's Talk About It'

Last year, there was talk of Princess Diaries 3 happening with the original cast (Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews) returning under the helm of original director Garry Marshall.

Garry tragically passed away back in July.

Now, months later, Julie is giving an update on the project.

“There’s talk about it. And [Anne]‘s very keen to do it. I would very willingly and happily do it,” Julie told BuzzFeed.

“I think we might do it in honor of him. Annie had an idea that she wanted to pursue about it, and I’m all for it, so if she’d like to…,” Julie said on honoring the late director.

Julie did also add that it is very early, and since movies take a long time to make, it won’t be happening soon.

'Princess Diaries 3' Is In the Works with Anne Hathaway!

There will officially be a Princess Diaries 3 starring Anne Hathaway!

“I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan,” director Garry Marshall told People. “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.”

When asked if Chris Pine would return to play Anne‘s love interest, he responded, “Maybe…He’s quite big now, you know. Chris Pine likes me, you know why? Because his father is in Mother’s Day!”

“His father I know, I’ve seen him in plays. Chris Pine and my kids went to similar schools, so I knew him as a kid. [Pine's father] is quite good, he plays a strange, funny Texan. He and Margo Martingale are husband and wife,” Garry continued.

Princess Diaries launched Anne‘s career back in 2001, and she reprised the role of Mia Thermopolis in the 2004 sequel.
