  • She doubts they would be able to do it, considering how much time has passed

Julie Andrews seems not on board with the idea of having a new "Princess Diaries" movie.

The 87-year-old English actress addressed the highly anticipated sequel in an interview with Access Hollywood earlier this week. However, she made it clear that she's unlikely to star in it.

"I think we know that it's probably not going to be possible. It was talked about very shortly after [the second sequel] came out, but it's now how many years since then?" she said.

Andrews continued, "And I am that much older, and Annie the princess, or queen, is so much older. And I am not sure where it would float or run."

In the first two films, Andrews portrayed Queen Clarisse Renaldi alongside Anne Hathaway's Mia Thermopolis.

When the first movie came out in 2001, it catapulted a then-18-year-old Hathaway to Hollywood fame. The movie's success prompted a second installment, "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement," which came out in 2004, as per People.

Aside from Hathaway and Andrews, the franchise also starred Mandy Moore, Heather Matarazzo, Larry Miller, Sandra Oh, Chris Pine, and many more.

Looking back at how much time it has been since they made the second movie, Andrews felt that they won't be able to pull off another installment. "In terms of doing it, I doubt that now," she quipped.

Last month, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Aadrita Mukerji was writing a script for the third film for Disney. Sources told the outlet that the movie would be a continuation of the films that starred Anne Hathaway.

Meanwhile, aside from Andrews, Moore has also expressed that she's unlikely to join the original cast for the new sequel.

The singer-actress admitted in an interview with Us Weekly she would love to reprise her role as Lana Thomas, but she doubts she would be getting an offer to appear in the third film.

"I wasn't part of the second movie. I would find it hard to believe that my character would ever come back for a third film," she said before admitting that she would watch the third installment even if she would not be in it.
