Hathaway then continued to star in a number of family-oriented films, such as Nicholas Nickleby (with Jamie Bell and Charlie Hunnam) and Ella Enchanted, along with Steve Coogan, Minnie Driver and Hugh Dancy.
In 2004, Anne Hathaway began filming the sequel to The Princess Diaries, entitled The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. The scheduling of the film forced her to pull out of a prior commitment to star opposite Gerard Butler in The Phantom of the Opera.

This much more light-hearted sequel reinvigorates the franchise after Disney's quirky but murky 2010 reboot of Lewis Carroll's classic, which sent the heroine into Underland (not Wonderland) for a dark adventure that spiralled into a Lord of the Rings-scale battle. Thankfully this time the odyssey remains personal, centred on lively characters rather than overwrought plotting. And Alice's time-travelling quest is both pointed and engaging.
After captaining her late father's ship on a global journey, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to 1875 London to bad news: her mother (Lindsay Duncan) has made decisions that take her future out of her hands. As she struggles to respond, she is summoned back to Underland to help her friend Hatter (Johnny Depp), who is emotionally devastated by the fact that his entire family has been killed. So Alice decides to help by confronting Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) and stealing a device that will allow her to travel back to help the younger Hatter. But she also becomes entangled in the early life of the White and Red Queens (Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway), and the feud that grew between them as young sisters. Meanwhile, Time is terrified that Alice is unravelling the fabric of reality.
The emotional nature of Alice's mission adds a surprising layer of suspense to the entire film, while director James Bobin (The Muppets) adds a breezy comical tone to Tim Burton's stunningly visual designs. Some of the more wacky flourishes don't quite work (such as the "sea of time" imagery or Time's hand-powered vehicle), but the film more than makes up for these with wonderful character details. This lets the actors relax into their roles while cranking up the surreal touches. Wasikowska is great as the plucky heroine fighting for her right to control her own life, a strong point that's made without preaching.

Corden was up first, taking the mic and rapping: 'I admit that Anne is both talented and sweet, and it's hard to say anything about her that's mean. But I'm gonna try my best and air it out like tank tops, and like her movie Get Smart, her rhymes are gonna flop'.
