It’s time to call upon her Majesty Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, Queen of Genovia, back to our screens. What! Don’t you remember the name of your favorite princess? I sure do and no, it wasn’t the most beautiful Disney princesses that fascinated me. Mia was the first fictional character that made me fall for the royalties. There are many like me who after 16 years, still believe in The Princess Diaries 3 and are eagerly waiting for its release date.
Released in 2001, The Princess Diaries was a success and its sequel was an even bigger success at the box office. How could it not be? It had an awkward girl (relatable), she was bullied at high school and didn’t know she was secretly the Princess of Genovia. What would God take to make my life a little like this?
Since the second movie The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement was released in 2004, the makers have kept us waiting for a really long time. However, questions have arisen time-to-time about the production of The Princess Diaries 3 and finally, we have some answers. Don’t worry they are all positive!
Garry Marshall Was Ready To Make The Princess Diaries 3
Yep, there’s a was in the title. Since we all are super excited for The Princess Diaries 3, you’ll be rejoiced to know that the creators of the movie are as excited as you. From Anna Hattaway to the very cute Chris Pine everyone has said a big yes to the next movie.
Julie Andrews, the former Queen of Genovia, also gave a green light to the movie in an interview with The Talk.
When asked about the possibility of the movie in 2020, Julie Andrews said, “I heard that there might be one. 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] 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 Gary Marshall who was the director. He’s passed. And he was really the nuts and bolts of it all.”
Anna Hattaway has even confirmed that there exists a script for The Princess Diaries 3, but they are just waiting so that the movie comes out all perfect. The franchise is as important to them as it is to the fans. So, they want to be extra careful with the script. Hathaway said, “There is a script for the third movie… 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 Princess Diaries Movie Plot Up Until Now
Mia Thermopolis is grown by a single mother Helen. She never knew her father and is an awkward girl studying in High School. Mia gets bullied by the girlfriend of her crush. Soon Mia learns that she is the daughter of Philip Renaldi, her late father who was to be the King of Genovia. Her mother divorced him because she wanted her daughter to grow like a normal girl, not royalty.
After the offer of the Queen, who offers Mia to be the new crown of Genovia, Helen talks to Mia and asks her to give the royal life a chance. Now, Mia has three weeks to learn how to be a princess, manage public life, and choose if she wants to be a Queen or not. By the end of the movie, we see her drenched in the rain, attending her first state dinner, and accepting the title.
In the second movie, i.e. The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, the new Queen Mia has to look for a suitor, so she can rule properly. While she does accepts a royal proposal, Nicholas Deveraux (a guy from a noble family) still insists on her and tries his best to swoon her. Pretending like he means nothing to her, Mia still spends time with Nicholas and finds that she also has feelings for him a day before her wedding. In the end, she decides not to marry the person she doesn’t love just for the sake of the throne. Meanwhile, we see many cute little princesses in the movie throughout.
