“I really want to do this, I’m pushing for this,” revealed Anne Hathaway, adding: “If we find a way to involve Julie AndrewsI think it could work.” In 2019, rumors hinted that the script for a third film by Pretty Princess had been written and that the realization of the project depended on the return of Hathaway and Andrews. In an interview in early 2022, Andrews, however, expressed his doubts, especially after the 2016 death of director Garry Marshall. “I think it would be too late to do that now,” Andrews said. “There was talk of a sequel many, many years ago. But it never happened, and Garry passed away. It’s too late for me now. It’s a nice idea, but I don’t think it’s possible.”

“Humor and an understanding of human nature,” Andrews said of why she joined the franchise. “I think it was the story idea too, of course, but Garry was incredibly generous. When I first met him, and I had never met him until the role came up, he posed some fabulous questions, like where do you think Genovia is? What do you think Genovia is famous for?” Then move on with the saga without Marshall the actress does not believe it possible or maybe he experiences it a bit as a betrayal. So Hathaway to hope for a third film would have to somehow convince her or devise a script in which her presence is not necessary. But how would fans take it?
