Julie Andrews addresses whether her character will return in Princess Diaries 3… one month after Disney confirmed the project

Julie Andrews has cast doubt as to whether or not she’s returning for Princess Diaries 3.

The legend, 87, alluded that it’s not really feasible her character Queen Clarisse Renaldi is still around in the third film, a project that has been confirmed by Disney last month: ‘Yeah it’s probably not going to be possible at this point,’ she said to Access Hollywood.

‘It’s how many years later and I’m not much older and Anne, the princess, now the queen, is so much older and I am not sure if it would float or run,’ Julie said.

The Sound of Music star added that if she isn’t part of Princess Diaries 3, her and co-star Anne Hathaway will work again together one day.

‘We’ll do something together. She’s a great friend,’ Julie said.

Anne played Mia Thermopolis, the granddaughter of Queen Clarisse Renaldi.

Anne has not yet signed on to Princess Diaries three; it is unknown if she will reprise her role.

News that Princess Diaries 3 was in the works was announced in mid-November.

The first Princess Diaries was released in 2001, with the sequel dropping in 2004. 

The third installment will reportedly follow Mia’s journey as a royal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Disney hired Aadrita Mukerji to pen the script of the project, the outlet reported.

While Anne has not signed on a deal to reprise her role as Mia, she has publicly stated her support previously for a third film in the franchise.

The films are based on the book Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot, revolving around a girl from San Francisco who happens to be the daughter of royalty from the country of Genovia.

Debra Chase Martin will produce the third film; she was the producer for the first two projects.

Melissa Stack will executive produce the project. 

In the first Princess Diaries, Anne’s character Mia finds out she is a princess after getting a visit from her grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi, played by Julie.

In Princess Diaries 2, Mia ends up falling in love with Nicholas, played by Chris Pine and takes over the title of Queen after her grandmother steps down from the throne.

Anne, 40, previously said in a 2019 episode of Watch What Happens Live that she wants to do a third film.

‘We all really want it to happen. We don’t want to do it unless it’s perfect, because we love it just as much as you guys love it just 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,’ she said.
