The Original Cast Returns to Voice ‘The Proud Family’ in the Disney+ Spinoff, ‘The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder’
It’s time for a family reunion — a Proud family reunion, to be exact. Thanks to Disney’s streaming platform, Disney Channel’s beloved, animated series is getting a reboot. Here’s what we know about future episodes of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, premiering exclusively on Disney+.
The original ‘The Proud Family’ animated series is available for streaming on Disney+
It’s not easy being a teenager. Take it from Penny Proud, who has to navigate school, bullies, and her weird and crazy family. With Disney Channel’s television series, viewers felt like part of the family, laughing with Oscar, loving Suga Mama, and befriending Penny.
This original series aired on Disney Channel from 2001 to 2005. Now fans can catch up with Penny and the rest of the Proud Family, thanks to the company’s streaming platform. Along with Disney Channel shows like That’s So Raven, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and Hannah Montana, seasons 1 and 2 of The Proud Family are available with a Disney+ subscription.
Are will be new episodes of ‘The Proud Family,’ added exclusively to Disney’s streaming platform
There’s no place like home, girl. After ten years after the finale of the original animated show, Disney+ is creating its own reboot, titled The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. According to an Instagram post from Disney+, the original cast will return to reprise their roles.
The Hollywood Reporter states, “Creator/executive producer Bruce W. Smith and executive producer Ralph Farquhar, who led the original series, are at the helm of the animated family sitcom, reuniting them with Calvin Brown Jr., who is co-executive producer and story editor.”
“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,” Smith and Farquhar said in a joint statement.
“The show’s humor and relatable stories are as relevant with audiences today as ever,” said Agnes Chu, senior VP content at Disney+.
This is similar to the Disney-owned series, The Clone Wars, in which the Walt Disney Company extended on its streaming platform. Unfortunately, the series does not have an official premiere date. Not yet, anyway.
Disney+ holds spinoff shows, including ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ and ‘Forky Asks a Question’
The Proud Family isn’t the only Disney Channel series getting a reboot exclusively on this subscription service. Disney+ holds a few Disney Channel-related spinoffs on its streaming platform.
That includes High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, an original featuring music from the High School Musical trilogy. There was a Lizzie McGuire remake in the works. However, production has reportedly halted on that project.
There are also animated shorts and series, including Forky Asks a Question and Lamp Life, based on Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 4. Reportedly, there’s a Pixar series related to Monsters Inc. on the way, titled Monsters at Work, set for its Disney+ debut during 2021.
