Published: Wednesday 12th May 2021 by Sam

When ‘The Proud Family’ returns on Disney+, it’ll be bringing a host of notable names with it.

As reported, the streamer will be the home of the new original series ‘The Proud Family: Louder And Prouder’ – which will see Kyla Pratt reprise her lead role as Penny Proud.

Now, it’s been revealed that Billy Porter is among several additional names added to the cast – which also includes Keke Palmer.

Full story below…

Per Disney, Porter, Zachary Quinto, and EJ Johnson are the latest talent to onboard the show.

Porter and Quinto, respectively, voice Randall and Barry Leibowitz-Jenkins, mixed-race adoptive parents to 14-year-old activist Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins (played by Palmer).
Elsewhere, Johnson will voice Michael Collins, Penny’s best guy friend who is a non-conforming trendsetter, serving up fierce looks at school and on the basketball court.

‘The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder’ picks up where the initial show left off and will revolve around Penny and her family: parents Oscar and Trudy, twin siblings BeBe and CeCe, and her grandmother Suga Mama (and Puff!).

Naturally, Penny’s girls Dijonay Jones, LaCienega Boulevardez, and Zoey Howzer are back too.

Immensely popular, ‘The Proud Family’ broadcast for two seasons on The Disney Channel from 2001 to 2005. A TV movie was also released.

And its legacy has been enduring, with calls for a reboot only gaining volume as the years went by.

With said calls being answered, anticipation is sky-high.

Ahead of the 2022 debut of ‘The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder,’ fans can re-watch the original series in its entirety on Disney+.
