Academy Award(R)-winner Julie Andrews (Best Actress, 1964, MARY POPPINS), enchanting newcomer Anne Hathaway, and Hector Elizondo (PRETTY WOMAN) lead a charmed cast in Disney's THE PRINCESS DIARIES, a hilarious, hip, and heartwarming modern-day Cinderella story. Mia Thermopolis (Hathaway) is a bright but terribly shy and gawky teenager whose goal in life is to survive each school day with a minimum of attention and embarrassment. Unfortunately, her wish to be invisible is thwarted when her estranged grandmother arrives and delivers the shocking news that she's a real-life princess - heir to the throne of Genovia! Furious and incredulous, the reluctant royal agrees to take "princess lessons" and make the biggest decision of her life - in three weeks. And so begins a comical transformation toward poise and princess-ness when she finds herself in the middle of a media storm, jealous schoolmates, and a plot to take over her country! Funny, uplifting, and affirming, your entire family will thoroughly enjoy this crown jewel.
