More about The Proud Family
The Proud Family was created by Bruce W. Smith in 2001 and ran until 2005 on the Disney Channel. The iconic animated series follows 14-year-old Penny Proud (voiced by Kyla Pratt) and her family, friends and classmates.
The show also has its own feature film released in 2005, The Proud Family Movie. In the film Penny turns 16 years old and it looks like she will be older this time around in the reboot.
The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder will see the return of original cast members like Kyla Pratt, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy Proud, Tommy Davidson as Oscar Proud, Jo Marie Payton as Suga Mama and Cedric the Entertainer as Uncle Bobby. Keke Palmer, Billy Porter and Zachary Quinto will also have recurring roles.
Although the revival does not have a release date yet, it is confirmed that it will debut on Disney+ in 2022.
Smith alongside executive producer Ralph Farquhar stated, “In our minds, the show never really went away, as we still had tons of stories left to tell. It’s the perfect time to bring back this show, and we can’t wait to take fans, old and new alike, on this journey with us.”
