Today, Netflix announced the Norwegian young adult film Royalteen: Princess Margrethe. The film is based on Royalteen Prince Charming, the second book in the acclaimed young adult novel series Royalteen by Randi Fuglehaug and Anne Gunn Halvorsen.
As last year’s prom ended with major drama for princess Margrethe, she now has to carry the secret of what happened to her closely so as not to bring shame on the Norwegian royal family. When she hears news of the Danish royal family planning a visit, Margarethe sees this as an opportunity to finally meet prince Alexander that she’s been chatting with for months. As family drama starts piling up for the Norwegian royal family, Margarethe has to find her footing not only as a strong and powerful princess, but also as a young woman in her quest for love.
The first feature film Royalteen; directed by Per-Olav Sørensen (Quicksand, Home for Christmas, Nobel) and Emilie Beck (When you left, Do you want me back?), launched earlier this year on Netflix. Director Ingvild Søderlind (All Foreigners Have Their Curtains Closed, Battle – Freestyle) will be at the helm in the sequel Royalteen: Princess Margrethe, bringing with her extensive experience in working with young adult talents.
Royalteen: Princess Margrethe is also set to launch globally on Netflix. Launch date is still to be announced.
