In the mood for a flick featuring Vanessa Hudgens? Netflix has you covered, friends. In fact, ’tis becoming the season for Vanessa movies. The actress is slowly but surely becoming somewhat of a seasonal staple on the streaming service’s holiday movie scene, and her longtime fans are here for it.

Right now, there’s plenty to choose from and possibly, even more to come in the very near future. So what Vanessa Hudgens movies are on Netflix this minute?

Vanessa Hudgens movies on Netflix 2020

Let’s take a quick look and see, shall we?

The Knight Before Christmas on Netflix

Starring Hudgens and Josh Whitehouse, this fan-favorite dropped on November 21, 2019. Audiences have been waiting patiently to see if and when the teased sequel will drop, but so far, we’re still waiting.

There’s no time like the present to check out this Christmas-themed rom-com.

Netflix describes the story as:

"Medieval magic sends a 14th-century knight to modern-day Ohio, where he falls for a high school science teacher who’s disillusioned by love."

The Princess Switch on Netflix

This one is definitely holiday fun for the whole family. The Princess Switch kicks off one week before Christmas. A duchess switches places with a baker from Chicago who looks just like her, and both unexpectedly (but not entirely surprisingly) fall in love with the man in the other woman’s life. Yikes.

Of course, it’s not immediately clear who is really right for each other and who isn’t. Not right away, anyway.

Netflix tells the synopsis as:

"When a down-to-earth Chicago baker and a soon-to-be princess discover they look like twins, they hatch a Christmastime plan to trade places."

Polar on Netflix

Looking for something a bit more action-packed? If Christmas-themed (or family friendly) movies aren’t really your thing, Polar might more of what you’re looking for in a film. Hudgens stars alongside Mads Mikkelsen and Katheryn Winnick in this gripping, neo-noir film.

Netflix describes it as:

"An assassin on the verge of retirement must put the good life on hold when his greedy boss sends a squad of young, ruthless killers to take him out."

The Frozen Ground on Netflix

This addition is definitely one for more mature audiences. Hudgens stars beside Nicolas Cage and John Cusack as a woman named Cindy Paulson. The Frozen Ground, which is based on a true story, follows Hudgens’ character as she helps law enforcement find a serial killer she had recently escaped from.

Netflix explains the story as:

"In this fact-based thriller, an Alaska state trooper pursuing a serial killer teams with a 17-year-old prostitute who escaped the predator’s clutches."

Sucker Punch on Netflix

If you love Vanessa Hudgens, chances are you’ve seen Sucker Punch. The action-packed fantasy flick was directed by Zack Snyder and features a handful of popular actresses, including Emily Browning, Jenna Malone, Jamie Chung, and Carla Gugino. Oscar Isaac also has a role.

Unfortunately, Sucker Punch has been criticized for its portrayal of women, which is certainly not something to ignore. It’s been called misogynistic, among other things. It doesn’t look like Hudgens has spoken out on the criticism.

Netflix says of the synopsis:

"Baby Doll, a girl slated for a lobotomy in a 1950s-era asylum, leads a group of young female inmates in an attempt to escape."

Next. Dash and Lily ending explained: Do Dash and Lily end up together?. dark

And on November 19, fans will finally be get the follow-up to The Princess Switch. We cannot wait to see The Princess Switch: Switched Again, where Vanessa plays not two, but three characters!

And it looks like The Princess Switch 3 is already in the works.

Netflix describes the plot as:

"When Margaret’s Christmas coronation complicates her love life, her double Stacy steps in to save the day. But will a third look-alike ruin their plan?"

Happy streaming, friends!
