Princess Diaries 3 Not Happening, According to Sources

It looks like fans of Disney’s “Princess Diaries” series will have to wait a little longer for that third installment.

Following a week of rumors that another sequel was on the way, sources close to the situation have confirmed that Disney is not developing a third “Princess Diaries.”

Rumblings of a third pic began at the end of last week when the Tracking Board reported a sequel was in development and continued after “Princess Diaries” actress Heather Matarazzo tweeted that good news was on the way for fans of the franchise.

A source close to the project said a conversation had occurred about a possible sequel but nothing came from that meeting. As of now no screenwriter is attached, and the film is not being developed by the studio. Sources close to Hathaway also confirmed that there is no script and that the actress is not attached to any sequel at this time.

That doesn’t mean a third installment will never happen, especially since the franchise still has a loyal fanbase and Hathaway has become even more of a star since “The Princess Diaries 2.” Until the studio is happy with a story that does the series justice, fans will have to wait a little longer for a threequel.

The original pic overperformed at the box office, bringing in $165 million worldwide on a $26 million budget. The sequel brought in $95 million at the domestic box office.

    That’s cool! If they do create a sequel I hope it’s as good as the first two. Princess Diaries 2 is my favorite! I wasn’t sure if Anne Hathaway would do a third since she has gone a different direction, but she is so good with that role that I hope she will consider it. It wouldn’t be the same without her.

    Good, the sequel was awful.
