'This Is Us' Star Makes History As Disney's First Black Live-Action Prince


Exciting news out of ~*tHe HoUsE oF mOuSe*~ this morning, as Disney has cast This Is Us star Niles Fitch as its first ever black [live-action] prince.

Fitch will take on the role of Prince Tuma in the upcoming film Secret Society of Second-Born Royals, which follows a group of royal teenagers who just happen to also have superpowers. It's supposed to hit Disney+ this summer!

**Some have asked whether or not Black Panther/T'Challa is actually Disney's first black live-action prince, but given that he's a Marvel character [which was once a separate entity from Disney], I think he technically falls into a different category.**

How excited are you?!
