Yep, our royal prayers have been answered, and Mia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, Queen of Genovia, will be gracing our screens once again in Princess Diaries 3. Maybe.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the author of the Princess Diaries book series (if you haven’t already read them, you need to dust off your crown and get on that ASAP – you can buy them here), Meg Cabot has spoken about a REAL LIFE PRINCESS DIARIES 3 SCRIPT that is out and about somewhere in the weird and wonderful world of Hollywood. And we’re pretty dang excited. But don’t dry clean your ball gown just yet, because, despite the fact a script exists, it doesn’t mean a third movie is in the works yet.
Nevertheless, over the past few months, there have been some pretty epic hints that Princess Diaries 3 could be a go-er. During the interview, Cabot mentioned that there had been ‘interest’ in a third movie after the death of Princess Diaries’ one and two director, Garry Marshall. The third movie would serve as a tribute to his life and royal legacy – and we reckon that would be puurrrrrr-fect (in the words of Fat Louie).
Since the interview, Princess Diaries fans across the world have been bombarding Cabot with questions. Her response?
I would love to sit down and talk about [it], but I can’t. I’m not allowed.
I mean, we’re not holding our breath…but she definitely knows something. Which means we can so totally get excited about Princess Diaries 3!
Genovia, we hope you’re ready for us.
