Disney Studios is launching a sequel to the popular comedy series "How to Be a Princess," starring Anne Hathaway. Adrita Mukherjee is writing the script for the new installment, which sources say is a development of an existing project rather than a reboot.
It is claimed that Hathaway herself does not yet have an agreement with the studio to return, but she has publicly stated her support for part three, and there is hope that the actress will still play a third film, perhaps to pass the "reins" to the new heroine.
The plot of the original 2001 film revolved around an American high school girl who discovers that she is heir to the throne of the European kingdom of Genovia. Based on the novel by Meg Cabot, "How to Be a Princess" became a box office hit, earning $165.3 million worldwide. Anne Hathaway returned in 2004 in the sequel, which grossed a more modest $134 million at the worldwide box office. The late director Garry Marshall directed both parts, which remain an important part of Disney Studios' "princess world."
Debra Martin Chase, who produced the first two "How to Be a Princess" films, will oversee work on the new one as well. "How to Be a Princess" (The Princess Diaries). The Princess Diaries - 08/03/2001
Mia lives in San Francisco, goes to school and faces the usual problems of American teenagers. She has no idea that she is the heiress to the throne and is being groomed to become the ruler of a European country. The film also stars Julie Andrews, Hector Elizondo, Heather Matarazzo, Mandy Moore, Caroline Goodall, Robert Schwartzman and Eric Von Detten.
