The Princess Diaries 3 is one of the best chick-flicks that have ever been made in the industry. Following its dramatic popularity the directors also went for a sequel which was received equally well as the first part. Almost 2 decades have passed but the hype of the franchise is still unmatched. However, suddenly why is The Princess Diaries Three back in the limelight? Are we finally getting the trilogy that we have long waited for?
Mia Thermopolis was living her dream life when we last saw her. She crowned as the Queen of Genovia and got a very handsome partner, Nicholas. But what happened next? Most likely this part will be explored in The Princess Diaries 3. However, first we need to make sure if the news about the threequel is true or not. Because considering the fanbase of the movies anyone can easily spread rumors.
The prolonged wait for the third installment broke the hearts of millions of fans who had eventually lost any hope of the threequel happening. But due to some recent activities, the future of the films seems very bright. How? Let’s read about it!
The Princess Diaries 3 Release Date
The project has not officially initiated yet. Back in 2016, Garry Marshall gave the good news to fans that Anne Hathaway and he were thinking of filming The Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan. Unfortunately, he passed away and no such news came out until 2019. When Hathaway told the press that the project was under serious consideration fans got some hope.
“There is a script. 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 the existence of a script implies that we can expect a threequel but getting back the original cast together will prove to be a very hectic task. As almost all of them have a pre-occupied schedule. From where we are standing right now The Princess Diaries 3 is not coming out anytime soon. However, you can lookout for a 2024 release!
The Princess Diaries 3 Cast
The first two parts revolve around Mia played by Anne Hathaway. And if the third part is to come naturally she’ll feature in it. Because without her the hype for the film will decline. Well, the good news is that almost the entire cast of The Princess Diaries has shown interest in the threequel. And if the film happens you can expect these similar faces to star in it:
- Anne Hathaway as Mia Thermopolis
- Julie Andrews as Queen Clarisse Renaldi
- Hector Elizondo as Joe
- Heather Matarazzo as Lilly Moscovitz
- Chris Pine as Nicholas Deveraux
The Princess Diaries 3 Plot
The franchise is based on the novel of the same name by Meg Cabot. However the first two films did not follow the original storyline exactly. So, we are assuming that the threequel will also be the same. Marshall suggested that the storyline of The Princess Diaries 3 will focus on Queen Mia returning to Manhattan. Unfortunately as he passed away this is all that we know about the plot so far.
But if the writers want to continue with this plot they have plenty of content to derive from the books too! So, it’s up to them in whichever way they want to continue with the story of Mia.
The Princess Diaries 3 Trailer
There is no trailer for The Princess Diaries 3 naturally because the production has not begun yet. And spoiler alert you’ll have to wait for a very long time in order to watch it. So, good luck! Before it’s release you can also watch and know about Vikings Valhalla on Netflix.
