Everyone’s favorite psychic fashionista is back! In the same fashion as Girl Meets World, Raven-Symoné returns to the Disney channel to reprise her role as Raven Baxter from That’s So Raven with a family of her own.
It’s only been a decade since the series ended, but from the revival's synopsis, Raven is now a single parent to twins and living under the same roof as Chelsea and her son. Sounds like the perfect setup for some good old-fashioned hijinks. So, let's talk about the first trailer. Here are three key takeaways:
1. Same Old Raven
It’s made clear from the beginning that Raven has not changed a bit, but why would you want her to? She’s seen teasing her daughter about bras, hitting a tennis ball from behind, and shooting off a confetti canon. Yep, same outgoing Raven.
Also, can we note that her sense of fashion is still on fire? I mean look at this:
Does this mean we'll see more Raven Baxter originals?
2. New Family Psychic
Like mother like son. It looks like Booker inherited Raven's gift and his powers are coming in just as the show begins.
3. The New Squad
Raven’s twins have their own group ready to go with the inclusion of an edgy neighbor. The trailer shows two seconds of her at most, but it's possible she’ll be the rebel of the group.
Then there's Chelsea's son, Levi, who's the total opposite of his mother. While Chelsea was always the goofy best friend, Levi is mature for his age. He tells his mom to “make good choices” and kisses her on the head as if she’s a child he's responsible for (and it's adorable).
Oh, and let's not forget the new leads, Booker and Nia. Both seem a bit more grounded than their mom (at least from the minute of footage we have), but look like they have a close relationship to everyone in their family.
All together, this is a stretch from Raven's original trio, but it's refreshing to see a different dynamic within this new friend group.
Of course with Raven as the titular character we're expecting more of her shenanigans as well when Raven's Home premieres July 31 on the Disney Channel.
