The Princess Switch Sequel: Everything We Know

In any other year, the news that Vanessa Hudgens will potentially play four lookalike characters in the same Netflix Christmas movie would stun me. But in 2020, a third movie in the identity-swapping Princess Switch franchise just makes sense. Netflix announced The Princess Switch: Switched Again, a sequel to the original 2018 film, will drop on November 19. The streaming service also confirmed the movies will follow in A Christmas Prince‘s footsteps to become a trilogy.

Just ahead of the sequel’s release, one of several holiday films coming from Netflix this year, a new trailer introduces us to Hudgens’ brand-new role. Ahead, everything we know about the wild movie and which doppelgänger we’re meeting next.

The first festively insane trailer is here.

A first look at The Princess Switch: Switched Again takes place two years after the original movie. Baker Stacy DeNovo is happily married to Prince Edward, while the long-distance relationship between Duchess Margaret Delacourt and Kevin has fizzled. Sounds simple enough. But things get complicated when Stacy, Edward, and (surprise!) Kevin travel to the fictional Montenaro for Margaret’s coronation. Margaret is too busy juggling new love interest Antonio and prepping for her big day to talk to Kevin about their split. Thus, she and Stacy decide to switch once more.

And if the logistics of their switch weren’t fuzzy enough, Margaret’s party girl cousin Fiona enters the fold. Lady Fiona is blonde, brash, and gives Hudgens another chance to flex her British accent. The movie’s plot is reminiscent of the first, which saw the identical Margaret and Stacy switch places and find love while living out each other’s daily routines. It’s unclear just how Fiona will factor into the second switcheroo.

Most of the cast is returning—with one major addition.

Sam Palladio (Nashville) and Nick Sagar (Shadowhunters) are returning as the franchise’s love interests Edward and Kevin, respectively. They’re joined by the mysterious Antonio (Lachlan Nieboer), who is vying for Margaret’s heart after her breakup with Kevin.

A third movie is on the way.

This will be the third year in a row that Hudgens has headlined a Netflix holiday film, following 2018’s The Princess Switch and last year’s The Knight Before Christmas. Production on the untitled third Princess Switch movie will begin in Scotland later this year and air in 2021, per Entertainment Tonight.

For those keeping track at home (just me?), this news means Hudgens will have been in as many Princess Switch movies as High School Musical releases. A new era is upon us, starting on November 19.
