Sandra Oh Reprises ‘Princess Diaries’ Role, Reenacts Phone Scene

Sandra Oh is stepping into her vice principal role from The Princess Diaries once again for a special reunion.

The actress reprised her Princess Diaries role as Vice Principal Geraldine Gupta on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Tuesday to introduce guest and her Princess Diaries co-star, Anne Hathaway. Hathaway played Princess Mia Thermopolis in the original 2001 film and its 2004 sequel.

For the introduction Oh reenacted her famous scene from the film when she picks up the phone and says into the receiver, “Gupta. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm,” before hanging up and telling everyone, “The queen is coming.”

Though in the film Oh’s character is referring to Julie Andrews’ Clarisse Renaldi, on the talk show she instead introduced Hathaway.

Despite Andrews stating that starring in another Princess Diaries film probably wouldn’t “be possible,” a third installment is in the works with Aadrita Mukerji penning a script for Disney.

While speaking to V Magazine, Hathaway teased the third film, sharing, “We’re in a good place. That’s all I can say. There’s nothing to announce yet. But we’re in a good place.”

Based on Meg Cabot’s novel, the first film earned $165.3 million globally. For the sequel Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, the film brought in $134.7 million globally. Late filmmaker Garry Marshall directed both installments, which remain pop culture touchstones.
