Disney+ Drops New 'Proud Family' Reboot Trailer

Featuring Joyce Wrice as the show’s new theme song vocalist.

UPDATE (January 17, 2022): Disney+ has released a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated Proud Family reboot.

The upcoming show follows none other than the Proud family who tries to navigate through life as Penny (Kyla Pratt) transitions into her teenage years. Being the overprotective father that he is, Oscar (Tommy Davidson) tries to adjust to the idea of Penny dating boys.

Along with the original voice cast, Keke Palmer, Billy Porter and Zachary Quinto will star in the series. Additionally, the show’s iconic theme song, which was originally performed by Solange and Destiny’s Child, has been updated by R&B artist Joyce Wrice.

Watch the full visual above. The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder will premiere on Disney+ on February 23.


UPDATE (November 13, 2021): After being first teased in August 2019, the official trailer of Disney+’s Proud Family reboot is finally here.

Picking up right where it left off in 2005, the show follows the life of the Proud family and their friends. The visual shows fans a glimpse of what to expect in the new season, including Suga Mama (Jo Marie Payton) getting buff and Penny (Kyla Pratt) going through puberty. “I’m becoming a woman,” she explains to her dad, Oscar (Tommy Davidson), as he inspects her bralette. “It’s my job as your father to do everything in my power to prevent it,” he exclaims.

The series will star returning cast members such as Paula Jai Parker as Trudy Proud, Cedric the Entertainer as Uncle Bobby, among others. Recurring voices include Keke Palmer as Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, Billy Porter as Randall Leibowitz-Jenkins, Zachary Quinto as Barry Leibowitz-Jenkins and EJ Johnson as Michael Collins. Meanwhile, celebrities like Lizzo, Tiffany Haddish, Gabrielle Union, Lil Nas X and more will guest star in the reboot.

The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder is set to premiere on Disney+ in February 2022.


UPDATE (May 13, 2021): Last year, Disney confirmed that a Proud Family reboot is on the way and is set to premiere on Disney+. In addition to the original cast, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder has welcomed new members to the show: Zachary Quinto and Billy Porter.

According to the streaming platform’s Instagram post, the two actors will take on the roles of Maya Leibowitz’s adoptive parents, Barry and Randall Leibowitz. Maya, a new character on the series, is described as a “14-year-old activist” who is set to be voiced by Keke Palmer.

Stay tuned while we wait for more details about the show’s official release date.

UPDATE (February 28, 2020): Disney has finally announced that The Proud Family will be returning with all-new episodes exclusively on Disney+. The reboot has officially been titled, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, and will star the original cast.

Reprising their roles are Kyla Pratt as Penny Proud, Tommy Davidson as Oscar, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy, Jo Marie Payton as Suga Mama, Karen Malina White as Dijonay Jones, Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey Howzer, Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez, and Cedric the Entertainer as Uncle Bobby.

Additionally, the animated TV show‘s original creator and executive producer Bruce W. Smith will return alongside executive producer Ralph Farquhar and story editor Calvin Brown. Smith and Farquhar said in a statement: “In our minds, the show never really went away, as we still had tons of stories left to tell. It’s the perfect time to bring back this show, and we can’t wait to take fans, old and new alike, on this journey with us.”

No official release date of the reboot has been disclosed yet. In the meantime, be sure to catch up on all original episodes on Disney+.


UPDATE (November 27, 2019): Last August, actor Tommy Davidson who voiced Oscar Proud in The Proud Family revealed that the series will be returning on Disney+ but did not have a definite date on when the show would be coming back. According to E! News, Jo Marie Payton who voiced Suga Mama in the show announced on Strahan, Sara and Keke this week that the cartoon will reportedly return with new episodes in February 2020.

Keke Palmer asked Payton if she was anything like her character during the talk show and said, “Yeah. Suga’s large and in charge, that’s all I’ve got to say – except for Suga Mama will be doing some new episodes come February.”

Disney+ has not yet officially confirmed the return of The Proud Family, so stay tuned while we wait for more details to surface.


ORIGINAL STORY (August 19, 2019): Complex has just reported that The Proud Family will be coming back with new episodes exclusively on Disney+. During a premiere event for 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, actor Tommy Davidson who voiced Oscar Proud, revealed that the 2001 American sitcom will be returning to the new streaming service. Without revealing too much, Davidson said:

“I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family’s coming back,” Davidson told Where Is the Buzz. “It’s on one of Disney’s streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family’s coming back. They told me not to tell you [...] New episodes.”

Kyla Pratt, who played Penny Proud, previously addressed the possibility of a Proud Family comeback in a 2017 interview with CelebSecrets:

“I’m absolutely in love with that idea! I’ve seen that idea circling around the Internet for a while and I’ve seen drawings of a grown-up Penny Proud,” she said. “It’s great because I love animation. I don’t have to do my make-up or hair, I could just show up and be loud! I would love to be a part of that process and I wish they would pull something together because that would be really tight!”

Disney has not confirmed The Proud Family‘s return to Disney+ just yet, so stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime, check out all the shows and movies you can stream on Disney+ on its launch day.
