Que the fan girl/guy shrieks of excitement. A film script for Princess Diaries 3 exists; Oscar winning, lead actress of the 2001 and 2004 Princess Diaries films, star Ann Hathaway has confirmed she and others are "working on it".
Often times, movie sequels can be hit or miss, given factors such as: is the core cast still the same, is is really a sequel or a prequel? Most the original cast is on board to give the film the green light, including the great Julie Andrews. Hathaway also says their producer, Debra Martin Chase, wants to make things happen, but she and the cast want to be careful not to rush it:
“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...” - Anne Hathaway - Watch what Happens 2019
Hopefully it will be worth the wait. Author of Princess Diaries, Meg Cabot, explained to Entertainment Weekly, says if anything, Princess Diaries 3 would be a tribute to the late Garry Marshall, director of the first two Princess diaries. Though Cabot has not confirmed any plots or story lines, however, there is interest in making it “kind of a tribute” to Marshall.
If memory does not serve well, viewers can re-watch The Princess Diaries and Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement on Amazon Prime movies. The films do not appear to be on Netflix. This comes at no surprise, as Disney is a big Netflix competitor. That is certainly a conversation for another day.
