Anne Hathaway thrilled by reaction to The Princess Diaries 3 announcement

In November, it was reported that screenwriter Aadrita Mukerji is writing the follow-up to 2001's The Princess Diaries and 2004's The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, although Hathaway has not yet signed on to play Mia Thermopolis again. During an interview with People over the weekend, Hathaway didn't reveal any updates but admitted it was "thrilling" to "see the level of excitement for it". She went on to note that fans must continue to be patient for a third movie as there is a long road ahead still.
