News broke that Niles Fitch will be playing Disney’s first Black, live-action prince and we couldn’t be happier. If he looks familiar, that’s cause the 18-year-old is a hot commodity. Niles plays a young Randall Pearson in the award-winning series This Is Us and now he’ll be making history in the upcoming Disney+ film, Secret Society of Second-Born Royals.

Here’s a quick synopsis, courtesy of Deadline:

“The film introduces Sam, a rebellious princess second in line to the throne of the kingdom of Illyria. Just as Sam’s disinterest in the royal way of life is at an all-time high, she is stunned to learn that she has superpowers and belongs to a secret society with a longstanding tradition of covertly keeping the peace throughout the kingdom. The movie follows Sam’s adventures at a top-secret training program for a new class of second-born royals tasked with saving the world.”
