Is Princess Diaries 3 Actually Happening?
Princess Diaries 3 has been confirmed AND denied. So what's actually happening?
Hold on to your unflattering spectacles: Princess Diaries 3 was just confirmed.
Hollywood site Tracking Board reported that Disney were planning a third movie to continue the franchise. We last saw Anne Hathaway as unassuming teen Princess Mia in Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement back in 2004 - but the story reported that Hathaway may not sign on to the movie, with Disney instead planning a reboot of the franchise.
Naturally, everyone went nuts.
But the story doesn't have such a fairytale ending. Now, we hear that the 'official' confirmation from the Disney insider a bit overexaggerated. Entertainment Weekly reported yesterday that their Disney source has confirmed that the sequel ISN'T in production.
STILL - while it's a blow for citizens of Genovia everywhere, we're not giving up hope.
It's not a massive leap that there could me more movies in the series - it's based on the book series, and Meg Cabbot has published way more in the series since the last movie. Plus, since Wills/Kate/George/Baby Char the world loves royals. We're not alone when we say we totes want to see where Queen Hathaway's royal fam is now.
So while the film might not be coming to cinemas soon, we're optimisitc. And anyway, it's an excuse to rewatch the original!
