It wouldn’t be a The Proud Family reboot without a star-studded guest lineup. Disney revealed first looks at several celebrities, who will appear in The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder — some as themselves — animated in the beloved original series’ signature style.

The new character art depicts Al Roker, Brenda Song, Jaden Smith, Lamorne Morris, Lena Waithe, and Lizzo. Roker, Morris, and Lizzo will play themselves.
