If you were hoping for Vanessa Hudgens to return to Netflix this holiday season in a sequel of last year’s surprise hit Christmas film The Princess Switch, you’ll have to keep waiting. In the meantime, the former Disney Channel star continues to leave her mark on the annual Netflix Christmas slate with The Knight Before Christmas, an equally cheesy holiday romance that’s sure to leave the Hallmark Channel crowd shaking in their winter boots.

Vanessa Hudgens stars in The Knight Before Christmas as Brooke, a high school science teacher who seemingly has been left with a bad taste in her mouth about love. Her disillusionment becomes tested when she meets Sir Cole, a medieval English knight, who has been transported to present day by a sorceress. Naturally, there’s a culture clash and an inevitable romance when the comically mismatched pair fall for each other around Christmastime.

The Knight Before Christmas finds Vanessa Hudgens pulling double duty as leading star and executive producer. Should the film prove a hit with viewers, much like last year’s The Princess Switch, Hudgens could very well find herself a yearly position as the streaming giant’s holiday mainstay. Next year could bring another new Christmas movie to the canon, or Hudgens could star in a sequel of either movie. Either way, be sure to check out the can’t-miss new original The Knight Before Christmas when it begins streaming on Nov. 21.
