The Proud Family is back with some big names! Disney has announced that huge range of celebs will appear on the The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, scheduled to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a launch in 2022.
Listen for the guest starring voice cast, including Lizzo, Chance the Rapper, Lil Nas X, Normani, Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Tiffany Haddish (Like a Boss), Lena Waithe (Master of None), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Gabrielle Union (L.A.’s Finest) and many more! That’s in addition to recently announced regular cast members Billy Porter as Randall Leibowitz-Jenkins and Zachary Quinto as Barry Leibowitz-Jenkins.
You might remember the original show from the early ‘2000s, which featured Penny Proud humorously navigating the world of junior high, with support from her wacky family. The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder will pick up this storyline and many of the original cast members will reprise their voice roles from the first series.
The new show is currently in the works for a launch next year on Disney+. It has some star power in the production department too! Bruce W. Smith (The Princess and the Frog) and Ralph Farquhar (Moesha) are executive producers and both led the original series. You’ll recognize the artwork courtesy of Eastwood Wong, who also worked on Carmen Sandiego.
If you need to brush up on your Proud Family knowledge before the new season comes out, you can watch both seasons of the original show on Disney+. And keep watching for the announcement of the official premiere date for this new series!
