Royalteen: Princess Margrethe is the sequel to Royalteen. This time, it is directed by Ingvild Søderlind and starsInes Høysæter Asserson, Mathias Storhøi and Elli Rhiannon Müller Osbourne. Based on the book by Randi Fuglehaug and Anne Gunn Halvorsen.

Royalteen proved (or proved to us critics) that young people either don’t read reviews or don’t give a damn about them. A low score from audiences and critics was not enough to prevent this Norwegian production had a second chance.

Youth does very well to ignore it, as this second part does very well to build on (and surpass) the successes of its predecessor.

Movie Review

Typical story of the normal girl turned into a princess or the girl who wants to be normal, with identity problems, drugs, and a great desire to have fun, to be liked by boys and to be popular. Well, I think that in the last one we have gone too far, because the princess is already quite well known.

Jokes aside (for now, we warn you), the movie is a kind of explosive mix between Beverly Hills, 90210 and The Crown… Norwegian version. You will understand that such a mixture, at least, would be novel (if it were not a sequel, okay), but the thing goes further, and the girl falls in love in the purest Bridgerton style to dynamite forever the traditional schemes of royalty.

No, we don’t think its creators are expecting good reviews and they won’t come from us us, but we have to admit that all this blend of supposedly new ideas, obnoxious clichés and nonsensical ideas of the marketing department are kind of curious in this cocktail that, although ridiculous for some, turns out to work, like the combination of “bennies” and cocaine with which the protagonist ends up in the hospital.

Neither in the artistic nor in its intentionality this is groundbreaking, nor do we believe that it will compete at the Oscars, but it is sure to please more than one.

Let’s not forget that these teen movies are the most watched year after year in the streaming network’s programming.

Not that it contributes much to the History of Cinema, but its intended drama ends up having its grace within a borrowed context.

As the slogan of the mysterious can that Homer enjoys so much: Nuts and Gum. Together at last!
