In 2000, the first volume of Meg Cabot's epistolary novel series, "The Princess Diaries", was released. A year later, "The Princess Diaries" was released as a film and achieving commercial success as it grossed over $165 million in the box office.

The film was produced by singer Whitney Houston and directed by Garry Marshall ("Pretty Woman", "Beaches", "Runaway Bride") and the success of the first film would ensure a sequel in 2004 titled "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement", the sequel would feature a screenplay by Shonda Rhimes (best known for creating and producing "Grey's Anatomy", "Private Practice" and "Scandal").

The two films would star Julie Andrews ("The Sound of Music", "Mary Poppins", "10″), Anne Hathaway ("The Devil Wears Prada", "Alice in Wonderland", "Get Smart") and Hector Elizondo ("Pretty Woman", "Runaway Bride", "Chicago Hope"). "The Princess Diaries" would be the first feature film debut of Anne Hathaway.

And now, both films will be released in a 10th Anniversary Blu-ray+DVD combo pack, courtesy of Disney.

VIDEO:

"The Princess Diaries" and "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement" are presented in 1080p High Definition (1:85:1). The video quality on both films is much better than the original DVD release and while the first film does show its age during the title credits and stock footage of San Francisco, the actual film is looks very good on Blu-ray with the additional clarity and more emphasis on colors. Especially detail on closeups of the characters faces. Skin tones natural on both films, black levels are good and there are no video issues that I spotted during my viewing of the film.

Both blue ray movies on the same disc and two separate discs for the DVDs allows us to have the movie in multiple places. Also let the family move right on from the original to the sequel. Great story, characters and family friendly movie!

The recent reissue of both The Princess Diaries: 10th Anniversary Edition and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement on a new Blu-ray/DVD package may have been due to nothing more than the titles coming up on the "to be Blu-rayed" list. It may only be coincidental that producer Whitney Houston passed not long ago -- or that Princess Mia, in the second film, wields a bow and arrow (suggesting the upcoming Brave), but that's probably reaching.

According the the generous audio commentaries on both discs (recorded several years ago on previous DVD issues), The Princess Diaries book was purchased by Houston's company and brought to Disney. The wisdom of casting Julie Andrews as the Queen (her first Disney film since Mary Poppins) and Garry Marshall (he of the modern-day Pretty Woman fairytale rom-com) cannot be underestimated.

Marshall has a talent for talent -- casting Anne Hathaway while she was still in her late teens and a movie unknown. His movies have a stock company that stretches back as far as his days with The Dick Van Dyke Show, not to mention Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy. His commentary on the first film, likely supplemented by copious notes, is a wall-to-wall comic monologue of moviemaking technique.

Julie Andrews, ironically, takes the Henry Higgins role in transforming awkward Mia into a princess. To me, she's really training Hathaway to be Julie Andrews, since Dame Julie has made a fine art of presenting herself as the gracious magical movie icon that she is. The first film was also shot at what is now the Julie Andrews stage -- Stage 2 on the Disney lot, the same one where Mary Poppins soared.

Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway share a high tea in their previously-released commentary on the first film.

To start off I have to say that I enjoyed watching these movies when they first came out in watching these again brings back great memories. These Blu-rays are wonderful and provide a great quality experience for the viewer and on top of this they also have put together a great list of bonus features that my kids really enjoy. Both of these movies are definitely family-friendly and ones that I would highly recommend anyone to watch. The movies are light, fun and offer a great time for all.

I was really wanting to watching this, and since it isn't on free Prime or Netflix, buying it was my only option. It's not available in most stores (I had checked Walmart and Target). I was able to get it on sale for a good price. Definitely worth it for the laughs! I bought this for the first one, but the sequel is amusing when you realize the male lead is Captain Kirk from the Star Trek reboot.

I own both these movies on DVD and wanted to upgrade to Blu Ray. It's fun the see the transformation from Mia as a geeky teen to a princess, and I love Chris Pine in Princess Diaries 2! Comedy and Romance is a feel good combination. The music is great, too!

Such a wonderful collection for the entire family to watch. Ann Hathaway is flawless as a gawky, geeky nerdy teen who is transformed - for the most part - into a beautiful, poised princess at the knee of her grandmother, Julie Andrews, the reigning queen of a small principality. Hector Elizondo is dashing and funny as well.
