Disney+ are amping things all the way up.
Because, the streaming service has officially unveiled ‘The Proud Family’ reboot and revealed that it’ll be feature Keke Palmer.
Full story below…
Billed as an Original Series, the show is now christened ‘The Proud Family: Louder And Prouder.’
Palmer is set to join returning cast, including Kyla Pratt who voices the main character Penny Proud.
Sharing the news, Disney tweeted:
“There’s a new girl coming to town! Prepare to fall in love with 14-year-old activist Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, voiced by @KekePalmer, from the upcoming Original Series, #TheProudFamily: #LouderAndProuder, coming soon to #DisneyPlus.”
Hugely popular, ‘The Proud Family’ initially broadcast for two seasons on The Disney Channel from 2001 to 2005. A TV movie was also released.
Suffice to say, this along with Beyonce‘s ‘Black Is King,’ Colin Kaepernick recent deal, and Bruno Mars‘ freshly inked partnership, Disney clearly have committed to driving diversity forward on their platform.
We’re excited for the return of ‘The Proud’. Are you?
