There are some new faces coming to “The Proud Family” reboot.
When the series was first announced, Disney+ introduced Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins.
Now, we’re learning the show will feature Disney’s first LGBTQ+ mixed couple: Barry Leibowitz-Jenkins and Randall Leibowitz-Jenkins. The couple, voiced by Zachary Quinto and Billy Porter are the adoptive parents to 14-year-old Maya. Maya is voiced by Keke Palmer.
Disney+ has also announced Michael Collins, voiced by EJ Johnson. Collins is Penny’s best guy friend who is a non-conforming trendsetter, serving fierce looks at school and on the basketball court. The character was voiced by Phil LaMarr in the original series.
“The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder” is currently set for a 2022 launch on Disney+.
