'Secret Society Of Second-Born Royals' Ending Explained: With January still at large, you can expect a sequel
'Secret Society Of Second-Born Royals' finally made its way to Disney+ at long last after a rather long delay. It's not blockbuster material at all, but it makes for the usual Disney Channel comfy film that caters to all the tropes of family and friendship in the superhero genre.
The premise is a tad unusual: it's about a bunch of teenagers who find themselves in a top-secret training program for a special crime-fighting force intended to train supernaturally gifted young sisters because there's a "gene that's exclusive to second-borns of royal bloodlines". And so, bam! That's where the story picks up. We meet our five unlikely heroes, each fitting perfectly into an archetype.
You have the leader in Sam (Peyton Elizabeth Lee), there's the overtly bubbly January (Isabella Blake Thomas), the cocky Tuma (Niles Fitch) and the socially-awkward Matteo (Faly Rakotohevna) along with the ditzy Roxana (Olivia Deeble). They are trained by Professor James Morrow (Skyler Astin), who is mostly just annoyed that they really can't pull it together.
After a rocky start, a friendship begins to grow between the heroes and they realize the importance of friendship and teamwork... because you know, that old chestnut. Nevertheless, this isn't the time to hold hands and sit around the bonfire, as the world as they know it, is in serious trouble.
It turns out that Sam's uncle Edmund, who was responsible for her father's murder, plans to wreak havoc on the day of her sister's coronation. There's a threat of a bomb to contend with and it turns out that Edmund has inside help. *Gasp* January is the traitor and is evil. She has been feeding secrets to him while pretending to befriend the rest of the royals. (Are there no checks on this, really).
With the help of her not-superhero friend Mike, Sam manages to have a face-off with Edmund and destroys all his plans. In short, she stops him from wrecking the coronation. However, January is still at large. All said and done, James Matthew is proud of his team and says that they are the most promising team he has ever had. The film ends on a happy note as they set off on another mission, paving the way for a sequel. Will January be caught in the next film? Let's see.
The film is streaming on Disney+.
