While this logline still has problems, I get a better sense of what the story is about.

The main problem this time is that your logline is all set-up and no forward story.
“When they discover they’re heirs to an otherworldly kingdom, a brother and sister must…”
(Then tell us what they must do)

I like Richiev’s format, but your plot interests me more. I can imagine it playing across the feature length. I’d suggest you go for a singular protagonist. Below is one way to pan it out across the blake synder narrative beat paradigm:
Setup: An abusive childhood on earth.
Inciting Incident: Discovering she’s from an alternate dimension.
Break Into Two: The reunion with her people; discovering her birthplace.
1st half of Act 2: The political situation of their planet; what can she do about it? Is she different from the rest? which can lead us to..
Midpoint: She was hidden away in another dimension to protect her from the royal family who wants her killed; discovering her birthright??
2nd half of Act 2: The Royal Family closes in, and so on…

What’s more? You can still have a twin (which is interesting) and define the lead character. Suggested Inciting Incident:  “After his twin from an alternate dimension pays him a visit…”
