It’s been 16 years since the second film in The Princess Diaries film opened. The series also stars Anne Hathaway.

During her appearance on The Talk, the 84-year-old actress opened up about the prospect of a third movie, reports

“It’s long been talked about but nothing sort of been on my desk or anything like that. I think I would (do it). I’m getting awfully old and crotchety,” she said.

Andrews played Queen Clarisse Renaldi, the ruler of Genovia in The Princess Diaries, with Hathaway playing her granddaughter, Princess Mia Thermopolis.

The first movie followed the Queen as she groomed the princess to rule the land of Genovia. The movie made on a $26 million budget was a surprise hit. In 2004, Andrews and Hathaway reunited for the sequel The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, about Mia preparing for marriage and finding love.

Talking about the franchise, Andrews said: “I’m not sure if it’s the right timing, but I think to work with Annie (Hathaway) would be lovely again. And yeah, sure I would be up for it. I think we should wait if the script comes in just wait for that.”

Filmmaker Garry Marshall, who passed away in 2016, directed both movies, with Gina Wendkos writing the first movie and Shonda Rhimes writing the sequel.
