Chris Pine is never short of a franchise, balancing his work in the Star Trek movies with DC movies and now the fantasy movie Dungeons and Dragons. He knows his way around a blockbuster, it’s safe to say.
But apparently, when fans want to discuss his best movies, the one they reach for is not any of those massive action movies. In fact, it’s a 2000s movie that served as Pine’s debut big screen appearance.
Pine made his cinema bow in comedy movie sequel The Princess Diaries 2 Royal Engagement, appearing as the dashing Lord Devereaux alongside Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. Almost two decades later, fans keep asking him about a third romance movie in the franchise.
In a red carpet interview with Heat for his adventure movie role in Dungeons and Dragons, Pine said it’s always The Princess Diaries that people bring up around him.
He said: “In fact, I get more people commenting on that film out of everything I’ve done than anything else. Thank you for liking me in that film even though my hair was about 90 feet tall.”
Unfortunately, Pine said he “doesn’t have anything to tell” about a possible threequel. In an era when noughties nostalgia is on the up – Russell T Davies is running Doctor Who again, for goodness sake – it makes all the sense in the world.
The Princess Diaries 3 is still a pipe dream, but there are plenty of new movies definitely coming in 2023, so check out our guides to the Oppenheimer release date, the Barbie movie release date, and the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 release date.
