Anne Hathaway could be returning to Genovia sooner than we hoped, as the actress has confirmed The Princess Diaries 3 is in the works.
During a recent appearance on US talk show Watch What Happens Live, a fan called in to ask the 36-year-old for an update on the rumoured flick. In response to the question on everyone’s lips, the actress — who plays Mia Thermopolis in the film franchise — confirmed: ‘There is a script for the third movie.’
If that wasn’t enough to bring about a cheer from the audience, Hathaway also revealed that the original cast will return to the silver screen. Yes, that includes Her Royal Highness Queen Clarisse Renaldi.

‘I want to do it. Julie [Andrews] wants to do it. Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it,’ she said. ‘We all really want it to happen.’
But there’s not yet word on when the film will be released, as Hathaway is keen to ensure that the third movie is ‘perfect’.
‘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,’ she added.
Last year, author Meg Cabot — who inspired the film franchise — hinted that the upcoming movie will honour late director, Garry Marshall.
