Disney+ is about to give us a very new kind of Disney Princess when its sci-fi fantasy film Secret Society of Second-Born Royals debuts on the streamer this summer. Entertainment Weekly shared some first look photos from the upcoming film.
- Secret Society of Second-Born Royals follows Sam, a rebellious teen living in the kingdom of Illyria and in the shadow of her older sister Princess Eleanor, who is next in line for the throne.
- Sam finds out that being the second born isn’t all bad as she is gifted with superpowers and drafted into a top secret group of gifted young recruits who must keep the world safe.
- Entertainment Weekly shared several photos from the upcoming movie:
What they’re saying:
- Peyton Elizabeth Lee who plays Sam: "Sam is going to be a unique addition to the Disney princess family because she doesn’t want to be a princess, she doesn’t want to be royalty. Because of that, it takes her on this journey of figuring out how to make it work for herself that’s going to break that delicate princess mold. When she finds this secret society that feels the same way, they figure out how to create their own legacy and have an impact on their country and the world."
- Skylar Astin who plays Prof. James Morrow: "He is such a fun character and provides a little levity to this otherwise fantasy action movie. James has the ability to multiply, so that is very convenient for teaching and combat. I made sure to make certain versions of him more eager, certain ones more serious. In a fight scene there's one that's more aggressive. My mother is going to love this movie because there will be 20 of me."
