This is interesting. I liked the show growing up. I wonder if there would be a time jump or not? I also wonder what other revivals might be in the cards— maybe this and others will be announced at D23? God, I’d love it if Gargoyles would come back. It’s absolutely perfect for Disney+.

Eighteen years after its Disney Channel premiere, The Proud Family is getting a revival. Disney+ has greenlighted The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, which is currently in production at Disney Television Animation. 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 addition, the original voice cast is on board, including Kyla Pratt as Penny Proud, Tommy Davidson as Oscar Proud, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy Proud, Jo Marie Payton as Suga Mama, Karen Malina White as Dijonay Jones, Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey Howzer and Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez. Cedric the Entertainer will also return as Uncle Bobby Proud.

"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+.

Added Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer at Disney Channels Worldwide, said, "The genius of the original Proud Family series was that, under the guise of a family comedy, it provided a brilliant social commentary on our life and times. With this new series, Bruce and Ralph will once again challenge everyone to think differently about the world we share."

I don't know why something like this wouldn't also appear on DisneyJunior. Disney+ is a plague. Having read a lot of the comments around the Lizzie McGuire news from yesterday in other places makes me think the service is unpopular outside of the Disney fanbubble. I hope it's under-performing Disney's expectations. I know they're not going to do away with it even if it does do horrible, but at least I'll get to be happy when they eat the cost of being so restrictive with their properties, taking things off Netflix and TV and everywhere else as well as kicking out anything that may not align with their homophobic idea of what constitutes "family friendly."

There’s clearly been a time jump, but perhaps not a hugely significant one since the twins still look very young.

I love that Suga Mama is back. She was always my favorite part. With the exit of Love, Victor and the public slow motion homicide of the Lizzie McGuire revival, this series has become my most anticipated Disney+ show.

Disney+ announced via social media today that Keke Palmer will be joining the cast of the upcoming original series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder as Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, a 14-year-old activist who relentlessly marches to the beat of her own drum. She is extremely mature for her age and will not hesitate to shut anyone down with her blunt honesty and wisdom. The adopted daughter of mixed race parents, Maya is new to town, and initially disassociates herself from Penny Proud (voice of Kyla Pratt) and her crew because she is skeptical about what she perceives to be the superficiality of social cliques. However, Penny eventually gains her hard-earned respect, and they become good friends.
