Shy San Francisco teenager Mia Thermopolis (ANNE HATHAWAY) is thrown for a loop when, from out of the blue, she learns the 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 the throne when her strict and formidable grandmother, Queen Clarisse Renaldi (JULIE ANDREWS), shows up to give her "princess lessons."

The two instantly clash -- Mia has no intention of leaving her normal life to become the ruler of a far-off country, while her grandmother insists it is her duty.

Clarisse is determined to do a complete makeover of this sparkling-- if not polished -- diamond in the rough so that she can take her rightful place in the royal line of succession. Now the reluctant princess must make the biggest decision of her life-- whether to remain with her family and explore a budding romance with her best friend's brother Michael (ROBERT SCHWARTZMAN), or to leave everything behind to accept the royal responsibilities that come with being the Princess of Genovia.
