I was really excited to find out that the Princess Diaries was coming out on DVD/Blu-ray. I remember watching these movies with my stepdaughter when she was younger. This time, I watched them with my 5 year old son. We had a movie night with popcorn and snacks. Of course, he ended up falling asleep on me but I enjoyed the movies. They will definitely be added to my movie collection to be watched over and over. Be sure to watch the bonus features. I love watching the outtakes and bloopers. Along with the bloopers, bonus features include:
- “A New Princess” Behind-The-Scenes Featurette

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 as her father and grandmother want her to be.
The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement
In this modern-day fairy tale picks up right where The PrincessDiaries left off! As future queen of Genovia, Princess Mia (Hathaway) has everything a girl could want – except the magical romance she’s always dreamed of. But soon, Mia’s shocked to discover that she needs to get married right now or her family will lose the crown! Comic complications rule the day in this delightful family story about finding out who you really are and discovering what it takes to make your dreams come true!
