The series is a sequel / spin-off to Het Huis Anubis, which ended a year earlier.

The movie, called: De terugkeer van Sibuna (meaning The Return of Sibuna), is about Nienke (Nina) and the rest of the club (Fabian, Jeroen (Jerome) and Amber) trying to save Appie (Alfie) from a German clan, who want to curse him to make themselves the rulers of the world.

Five teenagers are invited to the House of Anubis. Each has their own hypersensitive sense that they have to suppress to be able to live like a normal person. According to Merlin’s prophecy, they have to work develop their senses and work together to unravel the mystery of the Dark Druids, and ultimately, defeat them to protect the Magical Sword – which is, indeed, the legendary Excalibur.
Sterre, Anastacia, Pim, Raphael and Marcel live together under the leadership of the mysterious landlords Arléne and Kai. The teens do not know about the existence of Kai because he hides himself, and spies on the teens by use of cameras. Arléne knows this and is very nice to the kids so they feel at home. The truth, however, is that Kai and Arléne are Dark Druids who want to use the senses the children have to revive Ewan, Kai’s brother. One of the girls, Sterre, also starts hearing voices and seeing a girl. But what does this girl want? Will she warn Sterre for Arléne and Kai?

But nothing is as it seems… There is another danger the Five doesn’t know about: the evil enchantress Morgana le Fay wants to get her hands on the sword of King Arthur. Merlin warns the Five: their senses must come back and they have to learn to control their powers, because only the Five, all together, can defeat Morgana. But Morgana has a helper, Thomas, who moved into the house with his mother. Morgana orders him to separate the Five so that they will never unite to fight against Morgana.
