The Princess Diaries phenomenon will almost hit its 20th anniversary next year (seriously though, where did the time go?!) and we may be in for a surprise sooner rather than later.
The Disney adaptations of Meg Cabot’s book series first premiered in 2001 and its lovable sequel followed just three years later — the films were some of the most iconic live-action films from the noughties era.
We’ve all been waiting for Mia Thermopolis (portrayed by Anne Hathaway) and Queen Clarisse (played by Julie Andrews) to do a third film and now, it looks like the gang may be coming together.
Speaking at an interview with The Talk this week, Andrews said: “I heard that there might be one [third film]. It’s long been talked about but nothing sort of been on my desk or anything like that. I think I would [do it]. I’m getting awfully old and crotchety. I’m not sure if it’s the right timing, but I think to work with Annie [Anne Hathaway, who played Princess Mia] would be lovely again, and sure I’d be up for it. I think we should wait for-if a script comes in, let’s wait for that.”

The possibility of The Princess Diaries 3 film release was first teased by Hathaway herself back in January 2019. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
In the meantime, watch the teaser for Michelle Obama’s new Netflix documentary.
