Royalty: 'This Is Us' Star Niles Fitch To Play A Prince In New Disney+ Film, 'Secret Society Of Second Born Royals'

Technically speaking, This is Us star Niles Fitch is about to be a Disney prince. Well…sort of.

Fitch has been announced as one of the stars of the upcoming Disney+ film, Secret Society of Second Born Royals. Peyton Elizabeth Lee, star of Disney Channel’s acclaimed series, Andi Mack, toplines the film.

The description: Secret Society of Second Born Royals introduces Sam (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.

Fitch will be Prince Tuma, one of her secret society classmates. Also starring are Faly Rakotohavana as Prince Matteo, Isabella Blake-Thomas as Princess January and Olivia Deeble as Princess Roxana. Also starring are Skylar Astin as James, Elodie Yung as Queen Catherine, Ashley Liao as Princess Eleanor, and Noah Lomax as Mike. Anna Mastro is the director.

Disney+ is set to debut this November, but no word on when this film will premiere.
