Disney Has Cast Its First Black Live-Action Prince

Get ready for an all-new live-action movie. 

Disney hasn’t been the best at diversity within their character roles, however, Disney+ has decided to change that with their live-action, sci-fi fantasy, “Secret Society of Second-Born Royals.”
This Is Us star, Niles Fitch will star as Disney’s first live-action prince who is a member of a secret society of royals who use their superpowers to protect the throne.

Fitch shared a screenshot of the upcoming Disney+ movie on Instagram with the caption, “Welcome Disney’s first Black prince.”

The cast also stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Sam, Olivia Deeble as Roxana, Faly Rakotohavana as Matteo, Isabella Blake-Thomas as January, Elodie Yung as Queen Catherine, Ashley Liao as Eleanor and Noah Lomax as Mike. “Secret Society of Second-Born Royals” lands on Disney+ on July 17th.

Do you applaud Disney for casting their first black live-action prince or do you think it’s too little too late?
