Runaway Princess is an upcoming Fanfic Channel Original Movie (FCOM) scheduled to premiere on March 2015. The film is scheduled to start production on January 2015 in North Carolina, which will last for four weeks. On February 16, 2015, it was announced that the film will premiere on March 27, 2015.
Two weeks before her coronation as Queen of Acauni, Charlotte Ambrose runs off to America to try to live a normal teenage life. She enlists the help of Katie, her pen pal for three years, to teach her the ways of a teenager. When word spreads of her presence in America, her life becomes endangered.
Cast and Characters
Maddie Hasson was originally planned to play the character of Charlotte Ambrose, but her schedule will conflict with filming for a Wonder Studios film. Liana Liberato then auditioned late September along with other actresses including Stefanie Scott and Chloe Moretz.
Jack Griffo will play the love interest of Charlotte. The character was originally made for Ross Lynch but his involvement with another film caused conflicts.
Filming was supposed to take place in New Zealand but was shifted back locally to North Carolina. The fictional kingdom of Acauni will be filmed locally in Asheville, North Carolina, while Charlotte will be used as the main location in America. On February 2, 2015, production for the film concluded. On February 6, 2015, a special screening of the film was made for reviewers, which received mostly positive reviews.
On February 16, 2015, it was announced that the film will premiere on Fanfic Channel on March 27, 2015 in the US and Canada.
