Home TV News Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Star Diamond White Wants to Inspire Black Young Girls

Diamond White hopes to inspire and empower the younger generation through the series.

Diamond White stars in the Disney series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur which premiered earlier this month. She portrays the role of the first Black teen super heroine called Moon Girl. Her character is based on the Marvel comic book of the same name.

Disney believes that the series will be a great inspiration among the teens. They described the lead character on the series Lunella Lafayette, aka Moon Girl, as “arguably one of the most brilliant characters in the Marvel universe. With her superpower of pure intellect and the real-life power of STEM, she uses her smarts combined with determination and confidence to protect her beloved Lower East Side neighborhood from danger.”
White agrees and she hopes that she had an aspiration like Moon Girl when she was a little kid. She tells People, “It’s cool to be smart. I wish I had a show like this growing up, because then maybe I would’ve been a little bit smarter. It’s cool just to see all the different flavors of the show. It’s really an all inclusive show. It’s really beautiful.”

More than anything, White hopes that her character will be taken as a role model by young Black girls. She hopes teenagers will watch the show since it will teach them educational lectures in a fun way. She said, “It teaches you a lot about quantum physics. You learn about science and stuff, but not only does she do a lot of science-y things, she also is just a 13-year-old Black girl growing up.”

Diamond White’s Childhood Would’ve Been Better If Moon Girl Existed Back Then


The actress believes that a show like Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur should have existed in the earlier decades. She would have known things better if there had been a show that teaches young girls different things. She said, “It would’ve made my life a little bit easier, especially the perm episode.”

She continued, “The ‘hair today, gone tomorrow.’ I would’ve loved to have seen a Black character getting her first perm, because that’s what I went through growing up. Maybe it would’ve deterred me from getting my first perm. That’s one of the main storylines in that episode: Don’t get perms, they ruin your hair, and you’ve got to take care of your crown.”

She also hopes the series would inspire kids from the younger generation. She said, “Overall, I think that it’s such an important character, but I try not to think about it too hard. Because at the end of the day, she is just a 13-year-old girl. It’s important to have her resonate in that.”
