Fans will soon get their first look at the highly anticipated Disney Channel reboot, “Raven’s Home.”
“I’m Raven and this is my home. These are my twin babies, Booker and Mia, and things have gotten even crazier since my best friend, Chelsea, and her kid, Levi, moved in,” Raven-Symoné, says, narrating the trailer, featuring co-stars Anneliese Van der Pol, Isaac Ryan Brown, Navia Robinson, Jason Maybaum and Sky Katz. “Then there’s Tess. She lives next door, but that doesn’t stop her from acting like she owns the place.
“Day by day, drama by drama, dance party by dance party, we’re doing our best to get by and get along. Sure, I can see the future, but I never saw all this coming. Welcome to ‘Raven’s Home.’ ”
In October, the 31-year-old, who most recently served as a co-host on ABC’s “The View” announced that she was walking away from her the talk show to return to acting.
“I’m excited and sad, but mostly excited. I have an announcement to make: No, I’m not pregnant,” joked Symoné. Later revealing, that she had been working with the Disney Channel on a spinoff of her former hit series, “That’s So Raven.”
“There’s no title yet, but I’m calling it ‘That’s So Raven 2.’ It’s Raven Baxter. It’s still me. But I am a mother this time. I’m going to be a single mother raising two kids, and one of them learns that she has visions,” she continued. “I’ve had such a great time … I’ve learned so much, and I’ve been saying, my experience has been multidimensional.”
in April, “ET” caught up with the cast at the Radio Disney Music Awards, where Symoné gave some insight into why she decided to return to her roots.
“Oh my goodness … I wanted to do it!” she said. “I wanted to get out of bed and work and laugh, and Disney Channel has been kind to me for the last — I don’t know — how many umpteen years. We all said, ‘This would be a great idea.’
“I’m executive producer, and what I think will work is writing is how the cast gets along and how the camaraderie behind the set works. I think that when you have that, all ages will come and enjoy the process with us. And we have such a great time on set. It’s been spectacular, and hopefully, not just Anneliese and I are laughing in our 30s, but also you will too.”
