Netflix’s A Christmas Prince gets a third installment
The Netflix film series A Christmas Prince is about to become a trilogy, and maybe a new holiday tradition. The big announcement was made on Twitter, with an official Netflix account posting an ultrasound image to break the news. The third film, which is set to come out around the holidays, will be titled A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby.
The series kicked off with A Christmas Prince back in 2017, and continued with last year’s A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding. The first one followed journalist Amber (Rose McIver), who after traveling to the fictional world of Aldovia, was mistaken as the new tutor. So, Amber played along with the fake identity, hoping to uncover a story. Amber and The Prince (Ben Lamb) obviously fell in love and became engaged. The sequel revolved around them planning their nuptials.
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby will take the next logical step and focus on the couple’s first child, with Amber and Richard hosting royals from a faraway kingdom to renew an ancient truce. However, when the priceless 600-year-old treaty disappears, peace between the two royal families is put in jeopardy and an ancient curse threatens their coexistence. As the title indicates, it will also take place over Christmas.
McIver and Lamb are returning to play the royal couple, with Alice Krige is confirmed to reprise her role as Queen Helena.
The director of The Royal Wedding, John Schultz, will return to direct the third installment. The script comes from Nate Atkins, who wrote The Royal Wedding and co-wrote A Christmas Prince alongside Karen Schaler.
The film is currently in the midst of production in Romania and will be expected to hit Netflix around the holidays.
