Earlier today, Disney+ announced Keke’s role in their upcoming revival, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. She’ll voice new character Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, a 14-year-old activist, on the original series.

The 26-year-old actor reacted to the exciting news on Twitter, stating, “Dreams come true!” She also shared the character with her fans on Instagram.

The series will feature the majority of the original cast that fans fell in love with back in 2001, including Kyla Pratt, Tommy Davidson, Paula Jai Parker, and more.
