The newest live-action Disney+ original movie, “Secret Society of Second-Born Royals,” will stream exclusively on the service starting Friday, July 17.
The film follows Sam, a rebellious teenage royal who unknowingly develops superpowers from a genetic trait attributed only to second-borns of royal lineage. Second-in-line to the throne of the kingdom of Illyria, Sam constantly questions what it means to be royal and wants to forge her own legacy. Unlike her perfect older sister Eleanor who will become the next queen, Sam would rather rock out with her bandmate and best friend Mike at an illegal protest or ditch a royal engagement for a fun night out.
Tired of her daughter’s misbehavior, Queen Catherine sends Sam to a summer boarding school where she and four other second-born royals — Tuma, Roxana, January and Matteo — discover they have unique abilities and are invited to join a secret society with a longstanding tradition of covertly keeping the peace.
With a new sense of purpose and some help from their Secret Society instructor James, Sam and her fellow recruits must learn to harness their new powers and work together as a team before they can save the world.
“Secret Society of Second-Born Royals” stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee (“Andi Mack”) as Sam; Skylar Astin (“Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) as James; Olivia Deeble (“Home and Away”) as Roxana; Niles Fitch (“This is Us”) as Tuma; Faly Rakotohavana (“Raven’s Home”) as Matteo; Isabella Blake Thomas (“Once Upon a Time”) as January; Elodie Yung (“Daredevil”) as Queen Catherine; Ashley Liao (“Always Be My Maybe”) as Eleanor; Noah Lomax (“Trial By Fire”) as Mike; and Greg Bryk (“Handmaid’s Tale”) as the villainous Inmate 34.
