The Princess Diaries 3 is an exciting prospect to Lord Nicholas Devereaux himself, Chris Pine.

Having starred in the 2004 sequel, subtitled Royal Engagement, the actor was asked about the next visit to the kingdom of Genovia by ET Online, which Anne Hathaway seems very much involved with.

"Yeah, I'm here! I'm here for it," he said. "Give me a phonecall or an email."

While a third Princess Diaries may take some time to get to us, Pine did also make sure to mention that he'd prefer a "low-profile hair helmet" should he jump onboard.

Attending this year's Sundance Film Festival, Mia Thermopolis actress Hathaway revealed that fan furore surrounding the franchise's return was "thrilling" to witness.

"We feel the exact same, and I know it's probably very frustrating," she told PEOPLE of the colossally delayed sequel.

"It's a process that requires patience, and so everybody should consider themselves a part of the movie business now, because this is how long it actually takes to make things."

While that one continues to evade the big screen, Pine can currently be seen playing Edgin Darvis in the fantasy heist flick Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves.

His co-star Justice Smith exclusively explained to Digital Spy how he approached the spellcasting of his character Simon, which was heavily inspired by sign language.

"I feel like if spellcasting were a thing, it would be a form of language. I wanted to ground it in something real," he said. "I knew I didn't want to just go like this [sticks out right hand]. Every time I see that in movies, I'm like, 'That's lazy.'

"When people who have magic powers in movies, or just powers in general [...] I feel like if magic were real, it wouldn't just be simple."
