ICYMI: Vanessa Hudgens Returning to Our TV Screens in the Very Best Way!

Written by Kyla Killackey. Published: June 24 2018


Back in November, Netflix blessed the world with a true gem in the shape of A Christmas Prince, the classic tale of your average neighbourhood girl who finds her way into working for the royals and falls madly in love with the down-to-earth Prince. Well, Netflix is coming back with more and I didn’t think it was possible, but things are about to get even better. Vanessa Hudgens has arrived.


Hudgens posted this photo to Instagram, announcing that she just wrapped filming for The Christmas Switch... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (There are not enough exclamation marks in the world to express how excited I am)


Apparently, there is a whole genre of movies dedicated to royal romances that occur over Christmas, and they are the best guilty pleasure you’ll ever find. But a royal romance... with Vanessa Hudgens... during the magical time that is Christmas... can it get any better?!?!? Yes, actually, it can. Because The Christmas Switch doesn’t just have one Vanessa Hudgens -- it has TWO!


That’s right, this movie is described as “a rom-com about a Duchess & a commoner who swap places after discovering they look exactly alike! But things get complicated when they each fall in love with a man who doesn't know their true identity.”




It hasn’t been confirmed that Hudgens will be playing both heroines, but the movie is about swapping identities, so it really only makes sense.


The Prince is being played by Sam Palladio, whom we know as Gunnar from "Nashville", and I’m taking a wild guess here, but I think Netflix will be releasing it around Christmas this year, so mark your calendars!!!
