Throughout our lives we encounter numerous stories that stick with us. Mine is The Princess Diaries…
This is an ongoing personal project that began at eleven years old and is being fine tuned 14 years later. Mia Thermopolis can already be credited with introducing me to some of my favorite movies of all time. But after reading this series for what was probably the millionth time, I finally want to succeed in watching every television program and film mentioned throughout the fifteen books.
My developing interest in film studies, however, does not allow me to just watch. I want to explore how the themes and narratives of the movies and TV mentioned by Mia relate to her within the title they are mentioned. A loose comparison on the diegesis if you will.
This is an ever evolving journey, and I welcome you offer your own advice and critics.
