Netflix’s ‘The Princess Switch’ Is Literally ‘The Parent Trap’ And We Can Prove It

The ideas behind cheesy Christmas movies are rarely unique. Seriously, how many times has a big city girl gone to a small town over the holidays and fallen in love with the sweet country boy there? While Netflix‘s new original film The Princess Switch is totally fun and full of cheer, it definitely draws on a classic film, too… The Parent Trap!

It didn’t take long for fans to start seeing the similarities, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t absolutely living for it! “The Princess Switch is a cross between Parent Trap & The Princess Diaries but with a splash of Christmas. 13 yr old me needed this movie!” said one excited fan. Another agreed, writing, “Can confirm the new Vanessa Hudgens Netflix Christmas movie The Princess Switch is a cheesy, grown-up, Parent Trap style masterpiece and it is amazing.”

Even Vanessa Hudgens, the star of the holiday movie, admitted that she understands the comparison, and she’s totally here for it! “I’ve seen that movie so many times,” she told People. “My sister and I used to act out the scenes from the movie. It’s still such a go-to of mine. If I still love it, hopefully, this will be a classic for my fans and that they’ll still watch it.” We have a feeling she’s right.
