Anne Hathaway won’t be reprising her role as Mia Thermopolis, nor will anyone else.
Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews shined in the first two movies, but sorry superfans. A third just isn’t going to happen right now.
In the last couple of days, rumors swirled that a Princess Diaries 3 was in the works and that Anne Hathaway may or may not be involved.
Twitter lit up with fans of Anne Hathaway and her character, Mia Thermopolis, rejoicing.
Unfortunately, those rumors were put to rest yesterday when a source close to Disney told EW that Princess Diaries 3 is not in development right now.
But, not to worry, you dedicated fans of Anne Hathaway and Princess Diaries. Don’t give up hope.
Princess Diaries 3. My childhood life is complete. I loved that movie. If only they did A Cinderella Story sequel…

That doesn’t mean they’ll never make one.
I WAS ALREADY SAD AS IS AND THEN Y'ALL TELL ME PRINCESS DIARIES 3 ISN'T HAPPENING? I GIVE UP ON EVERYTHING.

Back in 2012, Julie Andrews was asked if she thought another Princess Diaries would be possible and if Anne Hathaway would be involved.
She said, “That’s a good question. I would never say no because Disney’s so wonderfully clever and inventive, but I would think they’ll stay with just the two because of Annie.”
So, Anne Hathaway may not be involved, but a reboot is possible.
After all, there were many books in the Princess Diaries series, which was written by Meg Cabot.
We shall see!
What do you think? If you were in charge of the next Princess Diaries, would you cast Anne Hathaway as an older Mia or would you do a reboot?
