40. Princess Diaries 2:Royal Engagement

                 It's hard to remember that Anne Hathaway started out her career as the magical Disney star of the Princess Diary movies and Ella Enchanted. But it was nice to travel back to the day of Princess Mia in the sequel where she tries to save her country of Genovia.
                Royal Engagement takes place after Mia graduates from College and she is off to spend some time in Genovia to get to know her grandmother Mary Poppins. Well not Poppins but Julie Andrews who plays her grandmother. Crisis hits when Mia discovers that she has to marry within one month or she will be forced to vacate her throne. She must choose between the likable but lame Andrew or Captain Kirk. Well not Captain Kirk but Chris Pine who plays the nephew of Lord Mabry who is trying to take over the throne.
                It’s a cute movie. I love the first P.D. movie and this was a quality but maybe not necessary movie. It is neat to see John Rhys-Davies play Lord Mabry but still hear the voice of Gimli from the Lord of the Rings movies. 

Final verdict: Worth owning if you own the first one.


  1. I have the first one but have yet to see the 2nd. May have to add this to my list of things to watch. I've always been curious.

  2. I love both of them. Love to watch them back to back & even got my "princess Mia" to watch them. She thinks the movie is about her, LOL!!

  3. i love this movie! i also love the first one! i really like that julie andrews sings in the movie! fun fact: i own pd2 but not the first!

  4. This is a worthy sequel. Not all Disney seconds are great (cough cough Cinderella 2) but this one makes the cut. More than anything I want to try mattress surfing!

  5. I liked both movies...okay i am a softy at heart, but both are full of fun scenes. I do like the supporting cast ,and the fact that Julie Andrews does sing in PD2...she still has it! The dialogue is entertaining but kinda silly in a few scenes. Overall a very cute, fun movie, worth owning if you have the 1st one.
