OK. This is one of those moments when I’m feeling a little old.
It’s been 10 years since the first Princess Diaries came out??
REALLY???? 10 Years???
Oh my.. where does the time go??
I’m excited to see that they are out together in a new Blu-ray combo pack!! My girls and I truly LOVED watching both of these movies when they were growing up. Such a cute storyline and fun movies to sit and watch as a family.

The Princess Diaries
Mia Thermopolis is the average teenager – sweet, a little geeky and pretty much invisible to everyone with the exception of her mother, best friend Lilly and Lilly’s older brother Michael. Making it through high school without throwing up is a challenge in itself for Mia, so it doesn’t come as welcome news when her estranged grandmother shows up out of the blue and calmly informs her that she is in fact the heir to the throne of a European country called Genovia. Suddenly Mia’s life is thrown into complete overload. She’s being taught about scarves, waves and pears in order to become a perfect princess, she gets a makeover and a tough looking yet sweet bodyguard/limo driver called Joe. Things get out of hand when the media gets a hold of the story and suddenly Mia is thrust into the spotlight in both the newspapers and in school. On top of all that Mia has a choice to make. She must decide by Genovia’s Independence Day Ball whether she longs to relinquish her claim on the throne or to become the princess and heir to the throne and father and grandmother want her to be.
The Princess Diaries 2 Starring the irresistible Anne Hathaway and Academy Award winner Julie
Andrews (Best Actress, Mary Poppins), this modern-day fairy tale picks up right where The Princess Diaries left off!
