My Life Has Been Made


About a week and a half ago, I received some of the best news ever. I was in the middle of tech week, and everything had been insanely crazy. The kids had been gathered for a mandatory rest time, and they were all throughout the theatre trying to unwind, some of them even napping. The crew members were scattered throughout the room as well, although we weren't sleeping. Most of us were scrolling on our phones since we weren't allowed to talk, just waiting to start working again. 

On my Instagram, I saw a tweet that peaked my interest. It mentioned The Princess Diaries. Curious, I Googled it. 

And promptly was on the verge of screaming. 

The Princess Diaries Three is Happening!!!!!j


I was trying not to scream because, of course, it was rest time- we weren't supposed to talk. But at that point, let me tell you- it wasn't exactly easy. My best friend was in the back of the room with our stage manager (who is absolutely amazing oh my gosh I love her to death), so I promptly bolted over to them and showed them. Then they ended up on the verge of screaming as well, so we were all completely freaking out, trying to do so, quietly, and pretty much failing. 


Sorry, Julie. I lost it. 

I. Am. So. Excited. 

Y'all know how much I love The Princess Diaries. I never seem to shut up about it. (If you read my blog consistently, I'm sorry. I'm sure you're sick of hearing about this by now.) Especially after the false alarm last June, this news is even more exciting. Even better, I've heard that Gary Marshall is definitely directing, and Anne Hathaway and Chris Pine are both in. I haven't heard word on Julie Andrews yet, but I'm praying that she does it. She's always said that if there was a third one, she would be willing to do it, so I'm hoping that she's true to her word! The Princess Diaries without Julie would just be sad. 

I'm really curious to see where they take the plotline. I've heard that this one will take place in New York City, and I'm hoping that it follows Mia and Nicholas's child. (Hopefully with lots and lots of grandma involvement.) Honestly, I don't care about the plotline. I just want to see lots of the old characters back again.

Five Things That Need To Be in The Princess Diaries 3

1. JULIE ANDREWS. Lots and lots of Julie Andrews. We need more of her absolute killer sass. 

2. Hopefully we'll get lots of Joe as well. I need to him and Clarice as an actual married couple! Because let's face it they'd be the coolest grandparents ever. I need to see this more than I need oxygen.   Plus, he was always so protective and sweet, and had the absolute funniest lines ever. Joe gives me so many emotions.

3. Plenty of references from the first two movies. "Shut Up" is required. And if we don't get to hear the Genovian national anthem again, I just might cry. I'm pretty sure that I know that anthem better that the US's national anthem. 

4. Scenes with Mia and Nicholas one-on-one. They have the absolute cutest relationship and I don't want that to be glossed over. Can we please have a recreation of the "I loathe you" scene?

5. LILLY! Hopefully she is now a successful talk show host (who reaches more than twelve people), and gets to be the coolest aunt in the world to Mia's daughter.

I can't wait. I absolutely cannot wait.
