Are you the second born? Are you tired of being compared to your older sibling? Do you want to feel special? In the Disney+ Original Movie: Secret Society of Second-Born Royals that is exactly what they are, compared to their siblings. But these royals have a secret: They have superpowers. And unlike their siblings who are in charge of protecting a kingdom, these teens are given the job of protecting the world.
Sam, who was played by Peyton Elizabeth Lee from the Disney Channel show Andi Mack, is the second-born princess of Illyria. Sam doesn’t fully agree with the monarchy and with her best friend Mike, she uses the power of music to get her point across. While walking across the street, after being unable to get into a club for a gig, Sam’s powers kick in. Without her knowing why she can see the code to the door and uses it to sneak into the club.
When Summer comes, Sam can’t wait to get away from her classmate who is snobby and is a social media addict: Roxanna. To Sam’s dismay, instead of rocking out with Mike, she is sent to summer school (or so she thinks). When she arrives at the school she meets the socially awkward Matteo, perky January, self-absorbed Tuma, and to Sam’s dismay, Roxanna.
These teens soon learn that the “summer school” is actually a cover-up and they are actually there because they have extraordinary powers. Like Sam having super senses, Tuma being able to control people into doing whatever he says, Matteo being able to control nature, Roxanna becoming invisible, and January able to steal other people’s powers. And they have been sent to the “Secret Society of Second-Born Royals” (that is led by Sam’s mom), With help from their teacher James (also a second-born), the teens are trained how to control their powers.
But there is a catch: Not every second-born is accepted into the Society. If at the end of the six-week training camp they can’t control their powers, they are taken away, their mind is wiped, and they won’t remember the last six weeks.
While Sam is at training camp, her 18-year-old sister, Eleanor (who is perfect in every way) is preparing for her coronation. But the coronation is in danger when Inmate 34 escapes and tries to take out the royals to get rid of the monarchy.
Using their training and learning from their mistakes, it is up to the second-born teens to stop Inmate 34 and his accomplice before the coronation is ruined.
Secret Society of Second-Born Royals is now streaming on Disney+.
