Peyton Elizabeth Lee to Star in Disney+’s Secret Society of Second Born Royals

-

Actress Peyton Elizabeth Lee, lauded for her role on the acclaimed Disney Channel series Andi Mack, has been cast in the lead role in the original movie Secret Society of Second Born Royals, a contemporary princess story for Disney+, the upcoming streaming service. The movie will begin production this month in Toronto.

“We are big fans of Peyton and are thrilled that she and the rest of the cast will bring this exciting world to life for Disney+,” said Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+. “We love the themes of self-discovery and empowerment inside ‘Secret Society of Second Born Royals,’ and our partners at Disney Channel are the perfect team to deliver this movie with adventure, humor and heart.”

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, Isabella Blake Thomas as Princess January, Olivia Deeble as Princess Roxana and Niles Fitch (This Is Us) as Prince Tuma.

“From the moment we first met Peyton, we knew she was special. It’s been an absolute joy to witness her growth as an actor over three seasons of ‘Andi Mack.’ Her authenticity and confidence will seamlessly complement the talented ensemble cast that will bring this unique story to life,” said Judy Taylor, senior vice president, Casting and Talent Relations, Disney Channels.

Also starring are Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) as James, Elodie Yung (Daredevil) as Queen Catherine, Ashley Liao as Princess Eleanor, and Noah Lomax as Mike.

Zanne Devine (I, Tonya, Kim Possible), Mike Karz (Valentine’s Day) and Austin Winsberg (Gossip Girl) are the executive producers of Secret Society of Second Born Royals. Anna Mastro (Marvel’s Runaways, The Bold Type) will direct the movie. The co-producer is Juliana Janes (Butter). The teleplay was written by Alex Litvak (Masters of the Universe) and Andrew Green (Hannah Montana) and is based on an original story by Litvak, Green and Winsberg.
