Niles Fitch has just pave through success with a remarkable role as Disney’s first black live-action prince. The actor, who plays a young Randall Pearson on NBC’s hit show ‘This Is Us’, has put pen to paper to play a prince in the upcoming sci-film ‘Secret Society of Second-Born Royals’ on Disney+.

The actor took to his Facebook page to acknowledge the new role, he wrote: 

 “Welcome Disney’s first live-action Black prince! Coming to your home screens as Prince Tuma, streaming on Disney+ in Summer 2020!!”.

Fitch’s character in the movie is a member of the secret society, all of whom are second-born royals. The 18-year-old plays the selfish and charismatic Prince Tuma, reporter by Entertainment Weekly.

The movie, which is based on a true life story by Litvak, Green, and Austin Winsberg is being directed by Anna Mastro with a screenplay co-written by Alex Livak and Andrew Green.

The movie introduces Sam (Andi Mack’s Peyton Elizabeth Lee), an insolent teenager living in the kingdom of Illyria and in the shadow of her elder sister Princess Eleanor (Ashley Liao), who is the heir to the throne.

Being younger means Sam assume superpowers, and is able to get drafted into a top secret group of other talented young recruits responsible for the world’s safety. “Sam is going to be a great plus to the Disney princess family because she does not want to be a princess, neither does she want to become a royalty”, actress Peyton Elizabeth Lee, who plays Sam, said.

“Because of that, it takes her on this journey of figuring out how to make it work for herself that’s going to break that delicate princess mold. When she finds this secret society that feels the same way, they figure out how to create their own legacy and have an impact on their country and the world.”
