When A Christmas Prince took off on Netflix in 2017, it heralded a new era for the streamer, one where the holidays would be a significant part of the yearly playbook. The next year, 2018, brought not just a sequel, but a full dive into the holiday spirit. Of the films and series that arrived that year, the biggest was the Vanessa Hudgens-led The Princess Switch, featuring fantasy royalty in full rom-com mode at Christmas. Unsurprisingly, there’s now a sequel. But when will The Princess Switch 2 be on Netflix? It’s arriving ahead of Thanksgiving for a full holiday run.
The original The Princess Switch starred Hudgens as pastry chef Stacy DeNovo, who accompanies her best friend Kevin when he enters a prestigious baking competition in the Kingdom of Belgravia. There, she runs into Lady Margaret Delacourt, Duchess of Montenaro, and fiancée to Belgravia’s Crown Prince Edward, who just so happens to be the spitting image of her. (It’s not that big of a surprise, considering Lady Margaret is also played by Hudgens, but never mind.)
Following the grand tradition of all characters played by the same actress in a single rom-com, they decide to switch places for a minute since both are unhappy with their lives. Stacy falls for Edward, Margaret falls for Kevin, and somehow no one is super upset when they all find out Margaret and Stacy lied their faces off about who they were for 90 minutes. The film ended with Stacy marrying Edward, and Kevin hinting he’s about to propose to Margaret.
The newest film, The Princess Switch: Switched Again, might seem at first like another chance for mayhem by Margaret and Stacy, but that would be too easy. Instead, Hudgens returns in the new film not just as a Princess and a Duchess but also as a party girl. Meet Margaret’s cousin Fiona, who Stacy convinces to help make things even more confusing when Margaret and Kevin’s relationship hits the rocks.
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
If that weren’t enough Hudgens for one film, there’s even more on the way. Netflix confirms The Princess Switch 3 is already planned for the holidays in 2021.
The Princess Switch: Switched Again premieres on Netflix on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020.
