Walt Disney Pictures is now working on the third instalment of the well-liked coming-of-age comedy series “The Princess Diaries.” Aadrita Mukerji, who has written for television series like Supergirl and Reacher, is currently working on a new instalment. According to sources, the new project is not a reboot but rather a continuation of the Anne Hathaway-starring movie series.
Casting for Hathaway has not yet been determined. The Oscar winner has previously made it known that, should the potential threequel get past the script stage, she will return to the Genovian universe. Hathaway played Mia Thermopolis, an American teen who discovers she is the heir apparent to the throne of the imagined European nation of Genovia, in the first instalment of The Princess Diaries, which was released in 2001. Veteran actress Julie Andrews played Clarisse Renaldi, Mia’s grandmother and the regent of Genovia, in it as well. The movie, which was loosely based on Meg Cabot’s book, proved a box office success, grossing USD 165.3 million worldwide. For the 2004 film The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, which brought in USD 134.7 million worldwide, Hathaway and Andrews reprised their roles.
Both films were directed by the late filmmaker Garry Marshall. The upcoming instalment is supported by Debra Martin Chase, the producer of the original two Princess Diaries movies. The comedy The Other Woman, in which Cameron Diaz starred, was produced by Melissa Stack, who is working as the film’s executive producer.
