The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder

Watch an Exclusive Clip from The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder

The wait is almost over!

We’re counting down the days until the two-episode series premiere of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder on Disney+. To add to our excitement, our friends at the streamer have shared an exclusive clip with D23 that features Uncle Bobby (voiced by Cedric “The Entertainer”) helping Trudy Proud (voiced by Paula Jai Parker) prepare to take her business to the next level. All Trudy has to do is “hit the button”… but as the scene below shows, it’s not quite that simple!

The season will find Trudy reaching new career heights. “Trudy was always a veterinarian, but now she’s taking it on the road,” Parker tells D23 in an exclusive interview. “I think that is a testament of the growth of the show. I am proud that The Proud Family was the first African American cartoon on Disney Channel—and on any network. We predate all of what is now a staple of Black cartoons. The fact that we’re not going back to where we were, but we’re progressing to where we are, is Disney all day long. That’s just what Disney does. They don’t allow you to stagnate, because the world isn’t stagnated. We all grow up. We all grow better.”

In addition to Cedric “The Entertainer” and Parker, the new original series’ returning voice cast from The Proud Family includes Kyla Pratt as Penny Proud, Tommy Davidson as Oscar Proud, JoMarie Payton as Suga Mama, Karen Malina White as Dijonay Jones, Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez, and Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey Howzer. Returning recurring cast members include Carlos Mencia as Felix Boulevardez, Maria Canals-Barrera as Sunset Boulevardez, Alvaro Gutierrez as Papi, Marcus T. Paulk as Myron Lewinski, and Raquel Lee Bolleau as Nubia Gross.

The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder premieres Wednesday, February 23, only on Disney+.
