Is Anne Hathaway returning?
Although we don’t know yet if Mia Thermopolis is returning to Genovia one more time, the actress has expressed support for the reboot.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in 2019, Anne Hathaway added fire to the rumours telling audiences, “There is a script for the third movie… I want to do it. Julie [Andrews] wants to do it. Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it. We all really want it to happen. It’s just we don’t want to unless it’s perfect because we love it just as much as you guys love it. 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 so…”
Is Julie Andrews returning?
Julie Andrews has also expressed her support for a third film.
"I heard that there might be one," she said in 2020, when asked if there was a script.
"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 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. Of course, we wouldn't have the wonderful Garry Marshall who was the director. He's passed. And he was really the nuts and bolts of it all."
However, in 2022, Andrews expressed that she feels "too old" to participate in the third film.
"I think it would be too late to do it now. There was talk of a sequel many, many years ago," she told The Hollywood Reporter.
"But I don't think it ever came to pass. And Garry then did leave us. [For] especially me, it's too far down the line now to go back to it. It's a lovely thought, but I don't think it would probably be possible."
Following news of the potential reboot, Julie Andrews revealed if she would be reprising her role as Queen Clarisse Renaldi during an interview with Access Hollywood.
"I think we know that it's probably not going to be possible," Andrews, 87, said. "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."
Is Chris Pine returning?
The people want to know! And now, Chris Pine has revealed he would be happy to appear in a future Princess Diaries movie.
"Yeah, I'm here! I'm here for it," he told Entertainment Tonight during the Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves premiere in Los Angeles.
However, the actor, who played Nicholas Devereaux in the Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, had one request. A different haircut!
Chris told ET that he would choose a "low-profile hair helmet," if he did reprise his role, over the longer locks he originally sported.
