In the world of cinema, there are stories that transcend the screen and become authentic cultural phenomena. The Princess Diaries is one example of a film that not only entertained audiences but left a lasting impression on the collective memory.
Over time, thoughts about a third film gradually emerged. In 2019, during a television interview, Anne Hathaway, who plays the lead role of Mia, confirmed the existence of a script for a third part.
Finally, The Princess Diaries 3 was announced in Fall 2022 and raised great expectations as Hathaway and Julie Andrews were confirmed to return to their respective roles.
The announcement of the third part came in 2022, leading to a significant increase in fan expectations. In that regard, MyTimeToShine, a Twitter influencer known for sharing Hollywood rumors before they’re confirmed by official sources, has claimed that Zendaya has been chosen to star in this third installment instead of Anne Hathaway.
Princess Diaries 3 follows a Generation Z mixed-race teenager who discovers that Mia Thermopolis is her half sister and moves to Genovia to live among royalty. Anne Hathaway will return as Mia, who is now the Queen of Genoa.
