Disney recently confirmed that Princess Diaries 3 is now officially in development🇧🇷 The film is yet another sequel to the classic The Princess Diaries, released in 2001, which featured Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews and Hector Elizondo in the main cast.
The second film arrived three years later, in 2004, and continued to show the trajectory of the character Mia Thermopolis (Hathaway).

The third feature, therefore, would arrive 18 years after the release of the last work. However, Julie Andrews, an actress who, in the production, played the queen of Genovia, Mia’s grandmother, is not very optimistic. According to the artist, too much time has passed between films, which would change many things and fatally could doom The Princess Diaries 3🇧🇷
“I think we both know it probably won’t be possible. We talked about it [a sequência] right after the release of the second film, but how many years has it been since then? And I am much older, and Anne the princess or queen is much older. I don’t know where she would float or go [a trama]” said Julie.
She went on to say that she doesn’t believe a sequel is possible and hints that if it happens, it won’t be the way fans want it. “In terms of us doing [a sequência], I doubt. It would be too late to do that now. We talked about a sequel many, many years ago. But I don’t think it was approved. And Garry left us. For me especially, it’s too late to get back into production. It’s a nice thought, but I don’t think it’s possible,” he concluded.

As the actress pointed out, the time for the sequel to be made official puts many things in check, as well as the death of the director of the original works, Garry Marshall. If the sequence happens, therefore, it would need a new commander and, perhaps, a new cast, which could generate strangeness in the fans who yearned to see Julie and Anne again.
The first two films of The Princess Diaries were great commercial and public successes. Together, the films grossed around US$ 300 million at the box office worldwide. Now, we can only wait to see if Disney will be able to repeat the feat.
