"Dear Diary, So much has been going on. I finished college! I graduated from Princeton where I studied Political Science. Now I'm off to Genovia! This is just the latest, exciting change in my life, one of a bunch I've gone through in the last few years. " Princess Mia

Five years have passed since the smash hit THE PRINCESS DIARIES ended, now the fun begins as Mia (Anne Hathaway) has matured into a stunning, young woman and is ready to assume her role as princess of Genovia. But no sooner has she moved into the Royal Palace with her beautiful, wise grandmother Queen Clarisse, (Julie Andrews) than she learns her days as a princess are numbered - Mia's got to lose the tiara and immediately take the crown herself.

As if getting ready to rule wasn't enough, the stakes for Mia have never been higher - with Genovian law stating that princesses must be married before being crowned, Mia is in for a parade of suitors who'd all like to be her king.

In the quest for a groom, comedy and complications rule the day as the cast and filmmakers behind the first film, including director Garry Marshall (PRETTY WOMAN, RUNAWAY BRIDE), return for this hilarious comedy.
