Disney+ is rekindling old favorites once more with the announcement today of THE PROUD FAMILY: LOUDER AND PROUDER. It’s been 18 years since its original Disney Channel premiere and the new series aims to continue its trademark stories and multilayered humor with messages of inclusion and cultural diversity in a smart, modern way.
As you can see from the concept art above, the show picks up just where it left off! The story will remain on the central character Penny Proud and also include her madcap family: parents Oscar and Trudy, twin siblings BeBe and CeCe, and her grandmother Suga Mama (and Puff!). Of course, it would not be “The Proud Family” without Penny’s loyal crew Dijonay Jones, LaCienega Boulevardez and Zoey Howzer, among others.
Reprising their voice roles are: Kyla Pratt as Penny Proud, Tommy Davidson as Oscar Proud, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy Proud, Jo Marie Payton as Suga Mama, Karen Malina White as Dijonay Jones, Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey Howzer and Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez. Cedric the Entertainer will also return as Uncle Bobby Proud.
THE PROUD FAMILY: LOUDER AND PROUDER is currently in production at Disney Television Animation with Academy Award-winning creator/executive producer Bruce W. Smith and executive producer Ralph Farquhar, who led the original series, at the helm, reuniting them with Calvin Brown, Jr. who is co-executive producer and story editor.
