Last spring, legendary director Garry Marshall revealed that he and Anne Hathaway were plotting to make a third installment of the Princess Diaries movies.

"I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan,” Marshall told People in March of that year. “Anne Hathaway is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it.”

"I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan,” Marshall told People in March of that year. “Anne Hathaway is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it.”

Marshall, Hathaway, and Queen Dowager of Genovia, Julie Andrews, even had a Skype meeting to discuss the possibility.

But in July of 2016, Marshall died of complications from pneumonia following a stroke at 81. Hathaway and Andrews both paid touching tribute to him soon after the news broke.

"I'm happy to have known you. I can never thank you enough for my life," Hathaway wrote.

"I'm happy to have known you. I can never thank you enough for my life," Hathaway wrote.

So now, in 2017, the question of Princess Diaries 3 becomes a little more complicated. But as Andrews told BuzzFeed News in February while promoting her new Netflix show, Julie's Greenroom, that doesn't mean it's ruled out altogether.

"There’s talk about it," Andrews said. "And [Hathaway]'s very keen to do it. I would very willingly and happily do it."

"I think we might do it in honor of him," Andrews continued, referring to Marshall. "Annie had an idea that she wanted to pursue about it, and I’m all for it, so if she’d like to…."

Andrews cautions that the movie-making process takes a while, and she's "not sure what the status is right now." When asked for a comment, Hathaway's rep said that it is "way too premature to discuss this project."

But there you have it, from multiple fronts: Don't give up on Princess Diaries 3.
