The age old tale of the Prince and the Pauper is getting an update in Netflix’s upcoming holiday rom-com, The Princess Switch.

Mark your calendars, Christmas movie fans. In case you missed it, Netflix is gearing up to bring fans of holiday rom-coms an all new slate of original movies to fall in love with this yuletide season.

One of the first coming down the pipeline is The Princess Switch starring High School Musical alumn Vanessa Hudgens in not one, but two roles.

The film focuses on Stacy De Novo (Hudgens), an American baker who gets the opportunity to enter a baking competition taking place in the fictional European nation of Belgravia.

Once she arrives in the picturesque country, she runs into none other than Duchess Margaret (also played by Hudgens), a royal destined to marry the country’s handsome prince, who also happens to look just like Stacy.

Yearning for a chance to explore the world as a normal girl and step away from the spotlight, Margaret convinces Stacy to pull a Parent Trap and swap places with her.

Get a sneak peek for what transpires after the two ladies switch lives by watching the trailer for The Princess Switch below!

The Princess Switch premieres via Netflix on November 16.
