The Princess Diaries, a cult hit from the 2000s that starred the famous Julie Andrews and the not-so-famous Anne Hathaway, did not blow our minds. The movie helped Anne Hathaway’s career, and the audience also liked Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.
After that, the idea of making a trilogy was talked about, but it wasn’t started until today. So, it looks like Genovia is taking care of herself, and we’re all set for a return of the famous character who is sure to make us feel very nostalgic.
What Can We Expect From the Renewal Status of Season 3?
When Julie Andrews won a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2022, many people looked into the possibility of a third movie. Back then, it didn’t seem like much, and Andrews herself shot down rumors of a Princess Diaries 3 at the time.
Since the director who was praised for both films died in 2016, the last chance was also gone. But when the time is right, anything is possible, even what seemed impossible before. In November 2022, Disney finally said that it would be going back to the Princess Diaries world.
When Will the Princess Diaries 3 Be Released?
Princess Diaries 3 does not yet have a set date for its release. But we don’t think it would be a waste of time to wait a few more months for an epic movie from the series. Reports say that the team has just started working on the script written by Aadrita Mukerji, who wrote the famous Supergirl.

It is said that the next book will continue Mia Thermopolis’s story, not the Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot. We still don’t know if Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews, who play important roles, will come back or not. Princess Diaries 3, on the other hand, is likely to come out in the second half of 2024.
What is the Plot of Princess Diaries 3?
Even if the movie continues with Mia’s story, there will still be a lot to show. The plot of the sequel was very different from the book, in which Man ends up with Michael, her best friend’s brother, after a long affair. Since Robert Schwartzman didn’t return for the sequel, he was replaced by Chris Pine, who played Mia’s love interest.
Princess Diaries 3 officially announce, but Anne Hathaway hasn't signed on to it, yet.

The movie ended with Mia being crowned Queen of Genovia. She did this by changing an old rule that said a woman could only rule once after getting married. At the end of the show, Andrew’s character told her bodyguard Joe (played by Hector Elizondo) that she loved him.
In the upcoming Princess Diaries 3, Mia’s rule might be different from how it was in the first movie, and we can definitely expect more slumber parties. Maybe a third movie will also tell us a lot about her love life, like if she ended up with Nicholas or if someone else mysterious is on the board.
Who is the Cast of the Princess Diaries 3?
The cast hasn’t been decided yet because filming hasn’t even started yet. This doesn’t tell us anything about whether or not the original cast will come back. Julie Andrews has already said that she will not play Queen Clarisse Renaldi again, so we can be sure that she will not play the role again.
As part of the celebrations for her AFI Life Achievement Award, she talked to The Hollywood Reporter and said, “It feels like it’s too late to try it now. In my case, that time period is too far away to go back to. It’s a good idea, but I don’t think it will ever come to pass.”
Anne Hathaway said on a 2019 episode of Watch What Happens Live that there was a draft for a third movie in the series and that she was interested in coming back. On Entertainment Tonight, she recently said that she was “pushing for it” and “would more than entertain it.”
“I think it could work if Julie Andrews was on board. She said that wherever she was, a green screen would be set up, and we would make it happen.
In August, Mandy Moore,, who played the school bully Lana Thomas on The Drew Barrymore Show, said she “would be game” to come back.
What Happened in the Past Seasons?
If you want a summary of everything that happens in The Princess Diaries, let’s start with Mia Thermopolis, a teen with frizzy hair who is trying hard to finish high school with her best friend Lily. She lives in San Francisco with her mother.
Even though she didn’t do much each day, she finds out all of a sudden that she is not an ordinary girl but a princess who is next in line. Her grandmother, Queen Clarice, tells her the whole story out of the blue, and she doesn’t know if she should accept it or not.
After the first movie ended, the second one began with Mia arriving in the made-up country of Genovia, where she confirmed that she was meant to be king. But when she got there, she realized she had to be married to take the throne. In the middle of all the chaos, Nicholas falls in love with Mia, but she doesn’t want to get married just because that’s what people do.
From what we know so far about the next installment, it won’t be a reboot, but rather a continuation in which we’ll see Mia’s new life as the Queen of Genovia.
