The Knight Before Christmas is the gloriously cheesy Netflix movie everyone will be watching.

It’s that time of year again, friends.

In the spirit of it (almost) being Christmas, Netflix have once again gifted us with the corniest, cheesiest Christmas rom-com we could ever imagine.

Enter: The Knight Before Christmas.

The upcoming Christmas film, which stars Vanessa Hudgens (because of course it does), follows a “kind science teacher who has been disillusioned by love”.

Check out a sneak peek at what’s coming to Netflix this Christmas below. Post continues after video.

Throughout the film, Hudgens’ character meets a cursed English medieval knight, played by actor Josh Whitehouse, who is best known for his role in the BBC series Poldark.

According to the official synopsis for the film, which will be released on November 21, Hudgens attempts to help her gallant knight in shining armour return to his time… as one does. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If the promo images for the upcoming movie are anything to go by, it looks like the film will tick off literally every single cheesy Christmas movie box.

There’s a ton of fake snow, Christmas lights, red lipstick and even a romantic horseback ride.

It’s all a bit gloriously corny, laughably far-fetched and goodness, we can’t wait to watch it.

Last year, Vanessa Hudgens starred in fan favourite Christmas movie, The Princess Switch.

The film, which has been described as a mix of The Parent Trap and The Princess and the Pauper, follows Hudgens as both Stacy – a Chicago-based bakery owner – and Margaret, the Duchess of Montenaro.

After bumping into each other by chance, the pair decide to briefly switch lives so that Margaret can fulfil her dreams of living as a ‘commoner’.

As expected, however, the two women promptly fall in love with men they certainly aren’t meant to.

Speaking to Glamour about a potential sequel, Hudgens said: “I honestly don’t even know where it would go, because we already got our happy endings. We’d have to create more conflict, or maybe there would be a third twin. Spruce things up a little bit. I have no idea. I’m going to leave that one up to the writers, but I know that I had so much fun doing it. The characters are so sweet that I would definitely be on board.”

The Knight Before Christmas will premiere on Netflix on November 21.
