The highly wished-for third film in the Princess Diaries series is officially underway at Disney - but for the moment the former lead star, Anne Hathaway, of the original two movies hasn't signed on to return as Mia Thermopolis yet. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Supergirl writer Aadrita Mukerji is working on the script for the third movie, 18 years after the last film in the series, 2004's The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.

Producer Debra Martin Chase, who produced each of the first two movies, is also returning to work on this film, which will be a continuation of the films and not a reboot.

Oscar winner Anne, 40, has previously voiced her support for a third installment in the franchise - during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"I would more than entertain it, I'm pulling for it," she said emphatically. "If there's any way to get Julie Andrews involved, I think we would make it work. We would go to where she was and put a green screen behind her and just make it happen."

Making us think that if offered she's likely to return to the franchise, but we shall have to just wait and see for the moment.
