Last year, fans of The princess to marry let’s say they weren’t happy with the news that the movie might be remade.

The commotion began when a remake of Rob Reiner’s beloved fantasy film was briefly discussed in a Variety profile of the film producer Norman Lear.

In the article, Sony Pictures boss Tony Vinciquerra is said to have said: “Very famous people whose names I won’t use, but they want to remake The princess to marry … Not a month goes by that we don’t have an idea from a very big name who wants to do things with Norman.

The one-off special saw Glover reunite with the cast of the series, which ended after six seasons in 2015, and was organized in partnership with José Andrés’ COVID-19 relief efforts at World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods. .
