Julie Andrews Says She’s Too “Old And Crotchety” For ‘The Princess Diaries 3’

The Princess Diaries 3 movie might be taking too long for one of its stars.

In spite of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway both stating they would return for a third movie in the Princess Diaries franchise, Andrews recently revealed on The Talk @ Home on Monday, April 27, that she still hasn’t seen a script or the plans for the movie.

“It’s long been talked about but nothing has sort of been on my desk or anything like that,” Andrews said of the possible third movie. “I think I would. I’m getting awfully old and crotchety. I’m not sure if it’s the right timing, but I think to work with Annie would be lovely again. And yeah, sure I would be up for it. I think we should wait if the script comes in, just wait for that.”

Andrews played Queen Clarisse Ranaldi opposite Hathway’s Mia Thermopolis in the movies, which centered on Queen Clarisse suddenly dropping into teenage Mia’s life and reveals to the young girl that she’s the heir to the throne of Genovia.

Last January, Hathaway disclosed on What What Happens Live that a script for a third film was already completed. At the time, she added it could include Andrews.

Later in October of that same year, Andrews appeared on Watch What Happens Live and shared that she had not heard anything of it. When a fan asked the actress if she had any updates since Hathaway’s announcement of the completed Princess Diaries 3 script, Andrews was surprised to lean that one even existed.

“I haven’t heard [there’s a script finished]. There’s been talk about [a third movie] for quite a while,” she said.

“I think [Hathaway’s] having a second child. She’s busy and I’ve been busy. If it happens, it would be lovely, and if it doesn’t, I wouldn’t have known about so there you go,” she jokingly added.
