‘Princess’ holds court

El Capitan hosts fairy tale preem

Before unspooling Disney’s “The Princess Diaries,” director Garry Marshall encouraged the audience to repeat “G is a good rating” at the El Capitan on Sunday.

Speculating about the decline of G-rated, live-action movies, pic’s Hector Elizondo said, “Essentially it’s because the people who have their ears to the ground, who are making movies, sometimes aren’t responsible enough to know there’s a need for this kind of thing.”

Marshall agreed: “I wanted to do a fairy tale for the fairy tale crowd, which are the young girls and boys. I thought I could make it cross (over) and get to adults too.”

Among those mingling with Snow White, Belle and Cinderella on the red carpet and at the princess-themed after-party next door were Disney’s Robert Iger, Nina Jacobson, Richard Cook, Mark Vahradian, Chuck Viane and Oren Aviv; pic’s Julie Andrews, Caroline Goodall, Anne Hathaway, Heather Matarazzo, Mandy Moore, Erik Von Detten, Mindy Burbano and Robert Schwartzman; plus guests Spencer Treat Clark, David Hasselhoff, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Michelle Trachtenberg.
