Disney is reportedly rebooting 'The Proud Family'
The popular animated series is allegedly set to be added to Disney's upcoming streaming service, Disney+. Few details about the reboot have yet been disclosed. Indeed, it currently remains unknown whether the original cast will be reprising their roles.
Davidson made the exciting announcement during a red carpet appearance for 47 Meters Down: Uncaged:
"I forgot to tell you that The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family‘s coming back," Davidson tells the reporter. "It’s on one of Disney’s streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family‘s coming back. They told me not to tell you…"
Needless to say, given how iconic the show is, plenty of people took to social media to share their excitement about the purported reboot:
"With The Proud Family returning to Disney+ and apparently being a new season, not a reboot. I only have one request KEEP THAT THEME SONG EXACTLY HOW IT IS," one enthusiastic fan wrote.
"PROUD FAMILY COMING TO DISNEY +. PEOPLE BORN AFTER 2003 WILL FINALLY UNDERSTAND," wrote another.
It's been 14 years since the last episode of the show aired, and it would be great to revisit 14-year-old high schooler, Penny Proud (voiced by Kyla Pratt), and her hilarious and animated family including father Oscar, mother Trudy, grandmother Suga Mama, and twin baby siblings BeBe and CeCe. The series had a 52-episode run from 2001 to 2005 and finished with The Proud Family Movie.
Disney has not yet confirmed the return of the series to its streaming platform, which is set to launch on November 12.
