Vanessa Hudgens to star in new festive film The Knight Before Christmas and honestly, give her the Oscar now
Vanessa Hudgens proved herself the official queen of Christmas last year – sorry Mariah Carey – after starring in festive Netflix film, The Princess Switch.
Side note: If you haven’t seen it yet, what have you been doing with life?!
And she’s ready to keep a firm hold on her crown with upcoming movie, The Knight Before Christmas.
The 30-year-old will be producing and starring in the festive film, which follows a medieval knight who is magically transported to the present day, and ends up falling for a science teacher.
Honestly, just hand her the Oscar now.
While we have more than a few questions about the plot – mainly about how exactly an English knight found himself in a high school in the first place – we are already living for the whole thing.
The Netflix offering will start shooting in Canada next month, with Monika Mitchell at the helm.
Josh Whitehouse is set to star opposite the High School Musical star, confirming the news on his Instagram page.
Alongside a snap of himself and Vanessa, he told his 25.8k followers: ‘Woop woop! It’s out!
‘I hereby pledge to be a true knight. #Netflix #AKnightBeforeChristmas.’
Can it be Christmas now please?
Vanessa is currently filming for the upcoming Bad Boys sequel – Bad Boys For Lif3 – with Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Alexander Ludwig and Charles Melton.
As well as all this, the star revealed she is also thinking about her future, with boyfriend Austin Butler.
The pair have been together since 2011, but she insisted they are in no rush to take things up a notch.
‘I want to get married, travel, then have kids, probably in my late 30s, everyone’s clock is different,’ she previously told Us Weekly.
‘He inspires me more than anyone. We both respect, trust and admire each other.
‘It’s so solid now because I feel strong as an independent woman.
‘I am very self-reliant, but it’s nice to have a best friend you can share victories with as well as losses.’
