The Princess Diaries is a 2001 coming-of-age comedy movie directed by Gary Marshall. It’s been 21 years since the first installment of this beloved franchise hit theatres, so if you’re still one of those who haven’t watched it, now might be the best time!
This was Anne Hathway’s first big movie, and she nailed it. She captured the life of a teenage girl trying to grow up quickly, plus her story with Tom is the staple of Hollywood rom-coms.
When we’re young we all wish to be a princess like Snow and Cinderella, but it’s just pretend.
This film depicts the reality of how a high-school girl can still have her life transformed into something out of the ordinary – treating her like royalty and giving her respect, which is what she deserves.
The movie is so close to our hearts because it’s not a very deep movie and it doesn’t have any profound messages, but it has some moral lessons in there. That’s why this wholesome franchise has a special place in our memories.
There have been a lot of speculations about a forthcoming Princess Diaries part that involves the primary cast reuniting for the royal shenanigans in the modern world. If you’re curious too, read on to know a wonderful update on the future of the franchise.
