LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: It was said that the third installment of the Anne Hathaway-directed film series is in the works for November. But that might not be true, because "it's been many years," says Hathaway's co-star in the film Julie Andrews. She also doubts that the flow of the film has been interrupted with time.

According to earlier reports, the third film is currently in the works at Disney. 'Supergirl' and 'Reacher' writer Aadrita Mukerji is penning the script for the new film, which will be a continuation of the series starring Anne Hathaway, not a reboot. Debra Martin Chase, who produced the previous two 'Princess Diaries' films, is also returning to produce the third installment - 'Princess Diaries 3' However, Hathaway, who played Mia Thermopolis in the series, does not currently have a contract for the third film, although fans hope she will be back when the script is finished.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Julie Andrews, who played Queen Clarisse Renaldi, grandmother of Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) in the movie franchise, recently told the outlet that she doesn't think a third film will actually happen this many years after the first two.

"I think we know that it's probably not going to be possible," Andrews said. "It was talked about very shortly after two came out, but it's now how many years since then? And I am that much older and Annie the princess, or queen, is so much older. And I am not sure where it would float or run. In terms of us doing it, I doubt that now."

Too Fab confirmed this isn't the first time Andrews raised an eyebrow or showed her hesitation about the project. Andy Cohen had the chance to speak to Andrews on 'Watch What Happens Live,' where he had to ask about a possible third film, and it honestly just comes down to time said the actress.

After hearing that Hathway said a script was in place for a third film Andrews said, "The truth is I haven't heard but there's been talk about it for quite a while. I think she's had or is having a second child and she's busy and I've been busy. I think if it happens it would be lovely."

2001's original film brought in 165 million dollars, while the sequel 'The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement,' brought in 134 million dollars. Shockingly, the film only cost 40 million dollars to make, thus safe to say it was a big win and a massive success.
