Disney has finally released the first trailer for the Proud Family: Louder and Prouder series and it is everything.
On Friday (12 November), Disney+ dropped the highly anticipated trailer for the forthcoming series in support of their annual Disney day.
The teaser features the beloved Proud family that we all know and love from the early 00s cartoon.
However, this time around Penny (Kyla Pratt) is a little older and exploring life as a young adult – much to the dismay of her father Oscar (Tommy Davidson).
Of course, the Louder and Prouder series wouldn’t be complete without the matriarch of the Proud’s, Trudy (Paula Jai Parker), Penny’s twin siblings BeBe and CeCe and grandmother Suga Mama (JoMarie Payton).
The series will also see the return of Dijonay Jones (Karen Malina White), LaCienega Boulevardez (Alisa Reyes), Zoey Howzer (Soleil Moon Frye), Uncle Bobby (Cedric the Entertainer) and Felix Boulverdez (Carlos Mencia), among others.
Louder and Prouder is looking to be a beacon for LGBTQ+ representation, and is set to feature an array of queer characters and voice actors.
Lil Nas X, Bretman Rock, Jane Lynch, Lena Waithe and Lizzo have all been confirmed as guest stars.
EJ Johnson will be taking over the role of Michael Collins from Phil LaMarr. In the revival, Michael is described as one of Penny’s best friends who is a “nonconforming trendsetter” at their school.

Pose’s Billy Porter and Heroes’ Zachary Quinto will also star as the franchise’s first-ever gay couple.
The two American Horror Story stars are set to play Randall Leibovitz-Jenkins and Barry Leibovitz-Jenkins, respectively, the adoptive parents to Keke Palmer’s 14-year-old activist character Maya Leibovitz-Jenkins.
Announced at the start of the year, Louder and Prouder is currently in production at Disney Television Animation and will be released on Disney+ in February 2022.
Bruce W. Smith and Ralph Farquhar, who led the original series, are back as executive producers.
Calvin Brown Jr is the co-executive producer and story editor, Jan Hirota is producer and Eastwood Wong is art director.
Proud Family originally ran for two seasons between 2001 and 2005 before concluding with a television movie. The series received critical acclaim and was nominated for several awards throughout its run.
The entire series is now available to stream on Disney+.
