The Tracking Board reports that Disney is making a third Princess Diaries to reboot the franchise. This probably-happy movie’s plot is sadly a secret. It’s also unclear if Anne Hathaway will reprise her role as princess-slash-queen of Genovia. (Hathaway has hinted that a return is unlikely, but it would be great if she did; it would be great if Shonda Rhimes came back to write this installment, too. How much of that greatness is realistic? Not much.) Judging by the execution of the first two flicks, the third will likely deviate from the source material, a.k.a. Meg Cabot’s original, still-running YA series of the same name. And since it’s been more than a decade since the last flick, that could mean there’s a new princess in town (or principality*).
