Dame Julie Andrews Is On-Board For 'The Princess Diaries 3'

Dame Julie Andrews Is On-Board For 'The Princess Diaries 3'

Dame Julie Andrews has admitted she's "onboard" with a third instalment of The Princess Diaries franchise.

The British acting legend played Queen Clarice Renaldi in the hit 2001 flick and its 2004 sequel, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, and revealed she would love to revive her role alongside Oscar-winning Anne Hathaway.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the screen veteran gave the loyal subjects of Genovia (by "subjects" - we mean us) a major glimmer of hope that a third film could soon be on the horizon.

She said: "If she (Anne) would like me to be then [yes]... I don't think the script's even been written.

"Think of how many years its been since that came out. And shes a busy lady. And I've been a busy lady. Getting it all together... but in this magical business, you never know."

Last week, the Mary Poppins actress spoke about the beloved film series and told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she "hasn't heard" anything about a revival - but said she would be interested in starring in it.

"I think if it happens it will be lovely and if it doesn't, I wouldn't have known about it," she told the host.

There has been much talk about reviving the franchise this year after Anne, who played the lead character Mia Thermopolis, said on WWHL in January that a script for a third movie exists, and claimed the writers were in the process of perfecting the plot.

Contrary to Julie's recent comments, Anne shared at the time: "There is a script for the third movie. I want to do it. Julie wants to do it. Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it. We all really want it to happen.

"It's just we don't want to unless it's perfect because we love it just as much as you guys love it. 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 so..."
