Netflix announced today the Norwegian young adult film Royalteen: Princess Margrethe, a follow-up to Royalteen, which launched this past August.
Based on Royalteen Prince Charming, the second book in the acclaimed “Royalteen” young adult novel series by Randi Fuglehaug and Anne Gunn Halvorsen, Royalteen: Princess Margrethe picks up some time after the events in Royalteen.
As last year’s prom ended with major drama for Princess Margrethe (Elli Müller Osborne, Ida Takes Charge), she now has to carry closely the secret of what happened to her 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 (Sammy Germain Wadi, The Sommerdahl Murders), with whom 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.
Ingvild Søderlind (Battle: Freesyle) will direct Royalteen Prince Charming, which is written by Ester Schartum-Hansen (Tango), Marta Huglen Revheim (Aber Bergen), and Per-Olav Sørensen (The Playlist), who co-wrote and co-directed Royalteen. The follow-up film is executive produced by Per-Olav Sørensen, with Ingrid Skagstad and Janne Hjeltnes producing.
Reprising their roles from Royalteen are Amalie Sporsheim (Rådebank) as Ingrid, Filip Bargee Ramberg (Afterglow) as Arnie, Ines Høysæter Asserson (Heirs of the Night) as Lena, Hannah Larsen Walberg as Fanny, Mathias Storhøi as Prince Kalle, Ina Dajanna Ervik as Tess, Vår Sørensen Grønlie (Home for Christmas) as Astrid, Niels Skåber (Afterglow) as Gunnar, Kirsti Stubø (Dag) as the Queen, and Frode Winther (Witch Hunt) as the King.
Royalteen: Princess Margrethe will launch globally on Netflix (date tba). Stay tuned for updates.
