Are we in the trust tree? I’m going to admit something – I liked the Princess Diaries movies. They were goofy fun films that introduced us to the wonderful actress that is Anne Hathaway. And while they may be formulaic and pure schmaltz they at least give young girls a positive, live-action role model in Hathaway’s Amelia “Mia” Thermopolis.
While the second film ended on a good note with no need to further the story a sequel would be nice to see where the princess-turned-queen has taken her quaint little country of Genovia.
Recently director Garry Marshall spoke with PEOPLE Magazine and the topic of reuniting with Anne Hathaway came up:
I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan. Anne Hathaway is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it.
That sounds promising. But it does seem like it may be some time before we can even consider seeing this.
But that time will give Marshall a chance to try and talk Chris Pine back. Pine, much like Hathaway, has gone on to be a huge movie star with a number of box office hits to his credit. But while Marshall seems unsure he doesn’t mind trying:
Maybe. He’s quite big now, you know. Chris Pine likes me, you know why? Because his father [Robert Pine] is in Mother’s Day!
I’d love to see Garry Marshall come back to this universe. Anything to get him away from these hokey “holiday” films that are being released.
