Twenty years after the show premiered, The proud family returns next year in reboot, The proud family: stronger and more proud on Disney +.
Kyla Pratt is set to reprise her role as Penny Proud, alongside recurring cast KeKe Palmer, Asante Blackk, rapper A Boogie, Raquel Lee Bolleau and Marcus T. Paulk. But the announced guest list is what is really making the buzz on the internet.

Disney + announced on Twitter only some guests who will lend their voices, and it’s the most star-studded cast we’ve seen in a long time with personalities from music, film, TV sports and more.
The original series followed Penny, a 14-year-old African-American girl, as she and her friends from diverse cultural backgrounds sailed through high school. The show was praised for the way it dealt with racial histories and cultural events that had not often been in the spotlight, such as the show’s episode on Kwanzaa.
The reboot will take place a few years after the original series ended, following the adventures of a slightly older Penny, her friends, and boisterous and proud family. We don’t know much else beyond that (as will Destiny’s Child re-recording the iconic theme song?) But in the meantime, you can watch the original series on Disney +.
