Let’s get a show of hands — who else was obsessed with The Princess Switch? The flick hit screens back in November 2018, and it quickly became an all-time favorite. Brace yourselves people, because Netflix just announced that they’re making a sequel to the Christmas movie, called The Princess Switch: Switched Again, and boy, does it sound like it’s going to be good!
OK, so naturally, fans have a lot of questions. Like, when will it come out? Will Vanessa Hudgens return to play Stacy De Novo and Duchess Margaret? What about Sam Palladio and Nick Sagar? Will they reprise their roles?
Well, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief because it’s already been confirmed that the High School Musical actress will indeed star in the sequel, and fans are seriously freaking out about it. Nick’s also been cast in the movie, but there’s no word on the other stars just yet.
Don’t get too excited though because according to the Netflix “See What’s Next” Twitter account, there will be some major trouble in paradise for Duchess Margaret and Kevin in the upcoming flick.
“In the sequel, Duchess Margaret unexpectedly inherits the throne and hits a rough patch with Kevin, so it’s up to Stacy to save the day before a new lookalike — party girl Fiona — foils their plans,” the account shared.

Wow, it sounds like Vanessa might be playing a third role in the sequel! It turns out, the actress actually came up with the idea back in November 2018.
“I honestly don’t even know where it would go, because we already got our happy endings. We’d have to create more conflict, or maybe there would a third twin. Spruce things up a little bit,” Vanessa said to Glamour when asked if she’d be down to star in a sequel. “I have no idea. I’m going to leave that one up to the writers, but I know that I had so much fun doing it. The characters are so sweet that I would definitely be on board.”
For those who forgot, the first film followed two girls — Stacy, a baker from Chicago, and Margaret, the Duchess of Montenaro. When the pair met in the fictional country of Belgravia and discovered they looked exactly alike, they decide to switch places so that Margaret could enjoy living a normal life. But things got a little complicated when they found themselves falling for the handsome men in each other’s lives!
There’s unfortunately no release date for the second movie just yet, but hopefully they share some more details soon.
