All three musicians celebrated their involvement in the animated reboot on Twitter, shortly after Disney+ rolled out an extensive list of guest stars in honor of The Proud Family’s 20th anniversary.

It’s a family thing. 🗣 Celebrate 20 years of #TheProudFamily with some of the star-studded cast of The Proud Family: #LouderAndProuder, an Original Series premiering in 2022 on #DisneyPlus!

While Lizzo and Normani each said they’d been “waiting” for an opportunity like this, Lil Nas X jokingly said he’d like to “thank the academy” for his award “in advance.” (I’m ready and waiting for his appearance at a future installment of the Emmys or Golden Globes.)

I can’t believe it’s FINALLY HAPPENING!!!! I been waiting for this one…. TURN IT UP!
