Julie Andrews thinks it is "too late" to make a "Princess Diaries" sequel.

Andrews, who played Queen Clarisse Renaldi in the movie series, shared her reasons for believing that another "Princess Diaries" film was not likely to happen.

"I think it would be too late to do it now," Andrews told the Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.

"There was talk of a sequel many, many years ago. But I don't think it ever came to pass. And (director) Garry then did leave us. [For] especially me, it's too far down the line now to go back to it. It's a lovely thought, but I don't think it would probably be possible," she continued.

The first two films, released in the early 2000s, were directed by Garry Marshall, who died in 2016 due to complications of pneumonia following a stroke.

The Disney movie franchise is based on the book series by Meg Cabot about a 16-year-old nerdy teenager Mia Thermopolis – played by Anne Hathaway – who learns that she is the heir to the throne of Genovia. Together with her two close friends, Mia navigates the princess life under the guidance of her grandmother, played by Andrews. In "Princess Diaries 2," Mia has just turned 21 and is ready to succeed to the throne. But according to the laws of the land, she cannot assume the throne unless she is married; she is given 30 days to find a husband.

Hathaway, back in 2019, said there was "a script for the third movie."

"There is a script for the third movie. There is a script. I want to do it, Julie wants to do it, Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it. We all really want it to happen," she said on an episode of Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live."

"It's just, we don't want to do it unless it's perfect, because we love it just as much as you guys love it. It's as important to us as it is to you and we don't want to deliver anything until it's ready. But we're working on it," she continued.

Andrews had previously said there might be a sequel to the movie franchise.

"I heard that there might be one," she revealed at the time. "It's long been talked about but nothing sort of been on my desk or anything like that. I think I would [do it]."
