Season 2 of The Proud Family: Louder and Proud is streaming now on Disney+

NEW YORK — For some who came of age after 2000, The Proud Family remains a touchstone. So many of you have seen yourself in the animated story of a very boisterous family. A reboot on Disney+ called The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder was good enough to warrant a second season, which has now started streaming.

The celebrities are lining up to lend their voice to the show, and one of those stars, Gabrielle Union, says: “Having representation is incredibly important. So many people from so many different backgrounds will be represented here.”

But those behind the show know that “no one watching an animated show wants to feel like they’re getting a lesson,” so this one is really funny and entertaining.

“Louder and Prouder” carries a PG label, pushing for parental guidance.

“The show was always designed as a family show, we weren’t a children’s show at all,” explains creator and executive producer Bruce Smith.

He works alongside another executive producer, Ralph Farquhar, who wrote episodes of the first version of the series and finds himself on The Proud Family two decades later.

“Frankly, the PG aspect has allowed us to talk more openly about the issues that we may have covered in the past but had to use code words for,” he said.

Smith agreed with him, noting, “I mean, we don’t swear or anything, but you know you can say we want to swear. There’s a lot of swearing on the cutting room floor, I know that.”

Then, as of now, one character has emerged as a fan favorite: Suga Mama.

“She’s still our favorite character to this day,” Farquhar said.

She’s just one in a large cast of characters voiced by household names like Anthony Anderson and Leslie Odom Jr.

Entertainment reporter Sandy Kenyon asked how they benefit from having such a diverse cast.

“Well,” Farquhar began, “it’s a wonderful opportunity to tell different stories, if you will, but on the problematic side, it’s difficult to fit everyone into a 10-episode season.”

A large cast allows each viewer to see themselves portrayed in the narration of a wide range of stories.

“We’re taking it on boldly, you know, loud and proud,” Smith concludes, adding that they won’t tell you how to think, just throw in a little bit of truth with all the jokes!

The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder is from Disney+, which is owned by the same parent company as that broadcaster.
