Streaming on Netflix and a flatscreen near you: Vanessa Hudgens in The Knight Before Christmas, made in Muskoka.
Filmed on location in Bracebridge and beyond, the official Netflix synopsis for the film reads: “A medieval English knight is magically transported to the present day where he falls for a high school science teacher who is disillusioned by love.”
Comparing the film to The Princess Switch, Hudgens told PopSugar: “Obviously, the concept is completely different. It is another high-concept love story… the character herself was something that was really appealing to me. She’s a strong, logical, intelligent young woman who, at the end of the day, is looking for love but isn’t someone that needs to be rescued.”
Watch for scenes filmed at the Bracebridge Sportsplex, Santa’s Village, John Street (sister’s house), McMurray Street’s Westlawn B&B (Hudgens’ house), and the Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes Secondary School. Cast includes Vanessa Hudgens of High School Musical and Josh Whitehouse as Sir Cole.
