It's never too early for a holiday movie, and nobody knows that better than Netflix. It's no surprise that the network has been steadily working to bring us more gems like A Christmas Prince, the holiday romance that did so well a sequel is already in the works. Netflix is bringing rom-coms back in a huge way, and its newest offering stars two familiar faces to music- and TV-lovers: High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens and Nashville's Sam Palladio.
Netflix's See What's Next twitter account announced the upcoming holiday rom-com The Princess Switch, which is very loosely based on Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper. See What's Next described the movie as "a rom-com about a Duchess and 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."

Since both Hudgens and Palladio obviously have musical skills, maybe we'll be hearing them sing some of our favourite holiday tunes in the movie? Or Netflix might go full original holiday soundtrack on this one. Though, that's really just wishful thinking on my part. Hudgens also posted about the movie on her Instagram, though she used the title The Christmas Switch instead. Whichever title Netflix chooses to go with, we are definitely adding this to our holiday movie queue!
