Last month, more details were revealed on the upcoming third “Princess Diaries” film, which has been in development for years.  The new film is being written by Aadrita Mukerji, who has previously written “Supergirl”, “Scorpion”, and “Reacher”. And it is going to be produced by Debra Martin Chase, who also produced the two previous “Princess Diaries” films. Melissa Stack, who previously worked on the 2020 Disney+ feature Godmothered, will be executive producing the film.

In the original film, teenager Mia Thermopolis, played by Anne Hathaway, who is just surviving each school day finds out some shocking news about the death of her long-absent father, and discovers that he was the prince of Genovia, making her a real-life princess. So begins a comical transformation towards poise and princess-ness, including a media storm, jealous schoolmates and a plot to take over her country. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.

Recently, Julie Andrews, who played Clarisse Renaldi, the Queen regent of Genovia in the Disney movie, has said during an interview with Access Hollywood, that her participation in the new film might not happen.

“I think we know that it’s probably not going to be possible.  It was talked about very shortly after [the second sequel] came out, but it’s now how many years since then? And I am that much older and Annie the princess, or queen, is so much older. And I am not sure where it would float or run.”

Earlier this year, Anne Hathaway spoke with Entertainment Tonight about her interest in making a third “Princess Diaries” film and hinted at a way of having Andrews return as well.

“I would more than entertain it, I’m pulling for it.  If there’s any way to get Julie Andrews involved, I think we would make it work. We would go to where she was and put a green screen behind her and just make it happen.”

The first film was released in 2001 and was followed up by the second film in 2004. Both of which, are available on Disney+.
