She is returning in the lead role for the original movie “Secret Society of Second Born Royals”. The movie is a contemporary princess story for Disney+, the upcoming streaming service.

Secret Society of Second Born Royals Plot
“Secret Society of Second Born Royals” introduces Sam (Peyton Lee), a rebellious princess second in line to the throne of the kingdom of Illyria. Just as Sam’s disinterest in the royal way of life is at an all-time high, she is stunned to learn that she has superpowers and belongs to a secret society with a longstanding tradition of covertly keeping the peace throughout the kingdom. The movie follows Sam’s adventures at a top-secret training program for a new class of second born royals tasked with saving the world.
Starring as Sam’s secret society classmates are Faly Rakotohavana as Prince Matteo and Isabella Blake Thomas as Princess January. Other classmates also include Olivia Deeble as Princess Roxana and Niles Fitch (“This is Us”) as Prince Tuma.
