Based on The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. Shy San Francisco teenager Mia Thermoplois (Anne Hathaway) is completely thrown for a loop by the unexpected and astonishing news that she’s a real-life princess! As the heir apparent to the crown of the small European principality of Genovia, Mia begins a comical journey toward that throne when her strict and formidable grandmother Clarisse (Andrews) shows up to give her “princess lessons.” The two instantly clash as Clarisse wants to make over Mia into a royal princess, but Mia has no intention of leaving her normal life to become the ruler of a far-off country.
