Disney Eyes a Third Installment for ‘The Princess Diaries’, Hires Aadrita Mukerji to Pen the Script

Published

on

With the long-awaited continuations of Disney stories such as Enchanted, The Santa Clause, The Mighty Ducks, Willow, etc. being released and in development, it seems that Disney has more stories they want to tell in The Princess Diaries universe. 

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has hired writer Aadrita Mukerji to pen a script for a new installment which will act as a continuation of the story and not a reboot. Though Anne Hathaway has yet to sign on, she has previously publicly expressed interest in returning and stated support for a third installment. The hope for the house of mouse, is that if Hathaway is a fan of the script, she’ll sign on.

The Princess Diaries released in 2001, with the subsequent film arriving in 2004. The two films combined grossed $300 million globally and are still in the pop culture stratosphere today. Hathaway played an American teenager who discovers that she is a successor to royalty in the European kingdom, Genovia. The Oscar-winning actress starred in both movies alongside Julie Andrews and were directed by the late filmmaker, Garry Marshall.

Mukerji has previously written for television, most recently for The CW’s Supergirl, Amazon’s Reacher and the new broadcast hit for NBC, the reboot of Quantum Leap.

A festive must watch packed with a star studded cast, gut busting humor and catchy musical numbers.

Published

on

It’s not very often a brand new Christmas movie becomes an instant classic, but here comes Spirited offering all the festive magic you could wish for and more.

Spirited comes with a wholly fresh and original story despite the infamous material it’s based upon. Stacked with a stellar cast, gut busting jokes and catchy tunes, Spirited is a Christmas movie that deserves a watch every Christmas season.

A musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ beloved A Christmas Carol, Spirited follows the Ghost of Christmas Present (Will Ferrel) who attempts to redeem an unredeemable (Ryan Reynolds).

It’s safe to say that there is no shortage of A Christmas Carol adaptations, from the classic 1951 A Christmas Carol, to Bill Murray’s Scrooged and even one involving the Muppets (my favorite). Spirited decides to take the familiar Charles Dickens tale and turn it on its head, making the film feel completely fresh and original despite the material it’s based upon, and results in an adaptation that is easily among the best.

Delivering a story that is so refreshing, Spirited excels in its own original plot, making each twist and turn feel earned and truly unpredictable. These twists are brilliantly executed, and are undeniably impactful. Forcing audiences jaws to drop to the floor as well as hitting them right in the feels in some very emotional moments that are sure to make audiences tear up.

The comedy is pitch perfect, each joke is hilarious and are expertly executed by the film’s cast. The musical numbers are just as funny as they are lavish, excelling the films comedy. Spirited all in all comes together to deliver one of the funniest Christmas ever.

Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrel are unsurprisingly dynamite on screen. Hilariously bouncing back and forth from each other whilst also hitting on all the emotional moments that will be sure to make you shed a tear or two. When you put two brilliant comedic actors, possibly two of the best in the genre on screen together what else could you expect. Similarly, the rest of the supporting cast is brilliant with Octavia Spencer once again showing the world why she is one of the best in the business.

Spirited offers many catchy songs, of which you will find yourself singing or humming along too long after the film has finished. The musical numbers are big, exciting and infectious, that are excelled by the cast, who all deliver surprisingly brilliant singing voices. I know I will be adding each song to my playlist.

All in all, Spirited is a must see Christmas film that is sure to become an instant classic. Offering a new and genius take on Dickens beloved tale, packed with gut busting humor, catchy musical numbers and a stellar cast.
