Trailer: Disney+ enters the Secret Society of Second-Born Royals

Disney+ will enter the Secret Society of Second-Born Royals this summer, and a new trailer gives us a look at the family film.
The new live-action Disney+ original movie combines the allure of royalty with the action-packed adventures of superheroes-in-training. Peyton Elizabeth Lee (Andi Mack) leads an ensemble cast of royal recruits. She plays 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 create her own legacy. Unlike Sam’s picture-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 wild night out.
Fed up with her daughter’s misbehaviour, 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 super-human 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 a little help from their Secret Society instructor James, Sam and her fellow royal recruits must learn to harness their newfound powers and work together as a team before they can save the world.
The film also stars Skylar Astin (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist), Olivia Deeble (Home and Away), Niles Fitch (This is Us), Faly Rakotohavana (Raven’s Home), Isabella Blake Thomas (Once Upon A Time), Elodie Yung (Daredevil), Ashley Liao (Always Be My Maybe), Noah Lomax (Trial By Fire), and Greg Bryk (Handmaid’s Tale).
Secret Society of Second-Born Royals is directed by Anna Mastro (Marvel’s Runaways, The Bold Type) and written by Alex Litvak (Masters of the Universe) and Andrew Green (Hannah Montana). It premieres on Disney+ on 17th July. Here’s the trailer:
