20 years ago today (September 15), “The Proud Family” debuted on the Disney Channel.
The animated series, starring Kyla Pratt, followed 14-year-old Penny Proud as she navigated endless comical events with the love, support, and shenanigans of her amazing family.
The series is very near and dear to so many of us. That is why we are super excited about the reboot, “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder,” coming to Disney+ in 2022.
“Louder and Prouder” will of course pick up the story of its central character, Penny Proud, as it catches up with her parents Oscar (Tommy Davidson) and Trudy (Paula Jai Parker), her twin siblings BeBe and CeCe, her grandmother Suga Mama (JoMarie Payton) and dog Puff, and members of her loyal crew including Dijonay Jones (Karen Malina White), LaCienega Boulevardez (Alisa Reyes) and Zoey Howzer (Soleil Moon Frye), among others.
Disney+ has also announced new recurring stars including Asante Blackk as Penny’s boyfriend, Kareem; rapper “A Boogie” as Maya’s gamer brother, Francis “KG” Leibowitz-Jenkins; Raquel Lee Bolleau, who will reprise her role as Nubia Gross; and Marcus T.
