In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Disney Plus announced the musicians, actors, sports figures, and celebs they've added to the lineup in guest star and recurring roles. Guest stars—Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Chance the Rapper, Normani, Leslie Odom Jr., Tiffany Haddish, Lena Waithe, Anthony Anderson, Gabrielle Union, Debbie Allen, James Pickens Jr., Courtney B.

Executive produced by industry veterans Bruce W. Smith and Ralph Farquhar, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder will bring back most of its original cast. Kyla Pratt will reprise the role of Penny Proud, and the story will again center her wild and fun family as well as her precocious crew Dijonay Jones, LaCienega Boulevardez, and Zoey Howzer, and more.
