Netflix recently established a new tradition, involving the release of holiday-themed movies every year. Cinematic masterpieces they are not, but I'm sure these movies aim to provide simple moments of joy with their kitschy music score and familiar plot. If you were ever lucky enough to happen upon a Hallmark Channel movie – then you know what I'm talking about, it's like that.
This year, Netflix’s next big holiday romance is The Princess Switch. Starring Vanessa Hudgens, it’s the all-grown-up Parent Trap you never asked for or even knew you wanted.
So here we have it, all the scoop on Netflix’s latest feel-good Christmas movie!
It’s "The Parent Trap" meets Christmas.
So, the movie doesn’t feature twin sisters – it’s two identical strangers who pull off the switcheroo! Vanessa Hudgens plays dual roles in a movie all about innocent romance and mischief.
Here’s the gist:
Stacy, a Chicago baker, and Margaret, the Duchess of Montenaro, meet at a Christmas baking competition. And surprise! They’re identical. So when Margaret reveals that she’s set to marry Prince Edward on Christmas, she asks to switch places with Stacy in order to experience a normal life before she becomes royalty. Once they switch, it’s a difficult adjustment. And, of course, they both begin to fall in love; Stacy with the Prince, and Margaret with Stacy’s attractive male friend. Cue the Christmas shenanigans!
Check out the trailer:Cute, right? Plus, when you consider last year’s Christmas hit, A Christmas Prince, it seems like Netflix has this feel-good Christmas formula all figured out.
And people are so ready for some Christmas joy.
