Sofia Carson is staying put at Netflix, and for her next movie, she's bringing King George along with her. Netflix announced that the talented and popular star of the hit Netflix movies Feel the Beat and Purple Hearts will star alongside Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story breakout Corey Mylchreest in the upcoming film adaptation of My Oxford Year by author Julia Whelan.

In the movie, an American woman named Anna (to be played by Carson) sees her childhood dreaming of attending Oxford University come to fruition, but when she meets a "charming and clever local" (to be played by Mylchreest), their lives and plans unexpectedly change. Love, it seems, will be very much in the air, and we're ready to absolutely swoon over Anna and her British beau!

My Oxford Year will be directed by Iain Morris, who created the series The Inbetweeners, from a scripted written by Allison Burnett and Savion Einstein. While Carson also worked as an executive producer on her previous Netflix movie hit Purple Hearts, she doesn't appear to be pulling double duty this time around.

But the actress and singer shared her excitement for the project on social media by saying, "My heart cannot wait to be your Anna."

As much as fans probably wish there was some news about a potential Purple Hearts sequel, it's still so exciting that Carson has yet another Netflix movie lined up. She'll next be seen in Netflix's film Carry-On, an action thriller also starring Jason Bateman, Taron Egerton, and Logan Marshall-Green. Carson will also star in the streamer's upcoming romantic comedy The Life List.

Even though Mylchreest doesn't have as extensive of a relationship with Netflix (yet!), he made his debut on Netflix in the 2023 prequel spinoff of Bridgerton in the co-leading role. King George marked Mylchreest's first series regular role and his first leading role, which came after a small part in Netflix's Sandman the year before. Here's to hoping My Oxford Year leads to even more collaborations between the rising actor and the streaming service.

Netflix didn't share when the movie begins filming or when it could be released, though production must be gearing up sometime later this year for a release either next year or the year after. Surely, Carson and Mylchreest will share snaps on social media when cameras start rolling and keep fans posted on the progress on filming. For now, start reading — or re-reading — the book to prepare for the movie's eventual release on Netflix early.
