A much-anticipated sequel to the Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement is in the works eighteen years later and is reportedly in early developmental stages.
According to E! News reports, a source close to the project confirmed that the third installment in the popular Princess Diaries series is currently in the works. American multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate Disney is officially working on the latest in the franchise, however, the cast is yet to be announced as the project is still in the early stages.
The source added that the highly anticipated third movie is a continuation of the well-loved previous films and not a reboot.
Indian film and television writer Aadrita Mukerji known for Reacher (2022) and Supergirl (2015) is reportedly working on the script, claimed The Hollywood Reporter.
Although there is no confirmation whether Anne Hathaway will return for the third film, however, the actress has in the past expressed the desire to return should such a project be underway. It is pertinent to note that Hathaway made her debut with the first film titled Princess Diaries (2001) as the awkward teenage Genovian-American Princess, Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, popularly known as Mia Thermopolis.
Speaking on the matter to talkshow host Andy Cohen, Hathaway expressed that she would be willing to return if “it’s perfect”. Hathaway said, “I want to do it. Julie wants to do it, Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it.” She added, “It’s as important to us as it is to you and we don’t want to deliver anything until it’s ready. But we’re working on it”.
Hathaway starred alongside Julie Andrews, Heather Matarazzo, Mandy Moore, Erik von Detten, Hector Elizondo, and others in the first two installments of the beloved book-turned-movie authored by Meg Cabot.
Meanwhile, a twelfth installment of the book series titled The Quarantine Princess Diaries: A Novel is expected to release in March 2023 and will focus on Princess Mia’s journey through the pandemic.
