Disney In Depth: 15 Quirky Reasons To Love ‘The Princess Diaries’
  |  @   |  

Fifteen years have passed since the debut of Disney’s based-on-a-book comedy featuring two of Hollywood’s brightest stars (Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway). The Princess Diaries premiered back in 2001, and would eventually earn a solid $165 million worldwide. “Shut up,” as Princess Mia would say.

To commemorate the 15th anniversary, Disney In Depth recognizes 15 quirky reasons to love The Princess Diaries. Why quirky reasons? Because the Garry Marshall film is full of peculiarities and oddities that are by turns charming and crazy good fun.
