90s babies are you ready for this!? The 2001 Disney Channel classic The Proud Family is back! Yep, that’s right the Disney animation series that centers around the life of fourteen year old Penny Proud (Kyla Pratt) as she navigates her way through being a teen with the help of her family and friends is being picked up where it left off February 23, 2022 on Disney Plus.

The first official trailer for The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder was released November 12, 2021.

The Proud Family was and is important because its one of the few cartoons that depicts the life of an African-American family and people of color in general.

Disney Plus released a second trailer that shows more of the Proud’s usual antics just as we remember. The plot-line for the revival on the Disney Plus website reads:

“A continuation of the acclaimed series, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouderfollows the adventures and misadventures of newly 14-year-old Penny Proud and her Proud Family as they navigate modern life with hilarity and heart. The 2020s brings new career highs for mom Trudy, wilder dreams for dad Oscar and new challenges for Penny, including a socially woke neighbor who thinks she has a lot to teach her, bullying social media influencers who want to cancel her and her own teenage hormones. Penny’s friends return, including Dijonay, LaCienega, Zoey and Michael. Penny’s Suga Mama also returns, ready as ever to dispense tough love or a gentle hand whenever Penny needs it.
