Last year Netflix decided to dip their feet into the Christmas movie market that Hallmark and Lifetime had been basking in for years. Whether you were here for it or not, from that decision, A Christmas Prince was born and we were never the same.

Seeing that the film was a huge success both with cheeky audiences and on social media, Netflix not only ordered a sequel to A Christmas Prince, but they decided to add even more original Christmas films this year!

Which brings us to today’s article about Netflix’ new holiday movie called The Princess Switch starring Vanessa Hudgens of High School Musical fame.  The film is basically The Parent Trap, except older and the parents are replaced with handsome men.

Here’s the official logline for the film:

One week before Christmas, Margaret (Hudgens), the gorgeous Duchess of Montenaro, switches places with Stacy (Hudgens), a “commoner” from Chicago, who looks exactly like her. With the assistance of a magical Santa’s helper, Margaret falls in love with Stacy’s handsome co-worker, while Stacy falls in love with Margaret’s fiance, the dashing Prince.
