Disney Channel definitely knows how to tease us, but at least they are keeping us entertained by releasing the theme song for Raven’s Home! Check it out below!

WE LOVE IT! This theme song is filled with all types of nostalgia. First, Raven still has her vocals and is as funny as ever, Chelsea is as goofy as ever even in motherhood, and the show  finishes with “That’s Us,” similar to Raven’s “That’s Me” at the end of the theme song of the original series. Our little Raven is all grown up and is back with a family! We have all types of emotions right now.

The anticipation continues to build as we all await the series premiere of Disney Channel’s newest sitcom, Raven’s Home!

As you already know the new series is a reboot of That’s So Raven, with Raven (Raven-Symone) and Chelsea (Anneliese Van Der Pol) as divorced mothers trying to raise their children together. One of Raven’s twins, her son, Baxter, inherits her psychic abilities and the fun–and mayhem–ensue!

via Variety:

Symoné and Anneliese van der Pol are now mothers as they reprise their role as best friends Raven Baxter and Chelsea Daniels. The dynamic duo is up to their same crazy antics, but this time, they are living under the same roof raising families of their own.

Raven’s 11-year-old twins Booker (Issac Brown) and Nia (Navia Robinson) join the cast along with Chelsea’s 9-year-old son Levi (Jason Maybaum), and Nia’s best friend Tess (Sky Katz).

While Booker is still coming to terms with is psychic tendencies, his mom, a vision veteran, remains unfazed with her son’s ability. As he comes to tell her about a vision he had, she quips back, “It’s not always about you, Booker.”

Still, family is just as important in the Baxter household, and according to Booker, they’ve got heart — and a whole bunch else.

Symoné will join longtime writer-producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff as executive producers on the series. “That’s So Raven” originally aired four seasons and 100 episodes between 2003 and 2007.

Lee Thompson Young

As many of you may recall, The Famous Jett Jackson, starred the late actor Lee Thompson Young, as “Jett Jackson,” a teen actor who struggled to balance his role as a famous TV character/action hero, “Silverstone,” and his own personal life. The series ran for three seasons and was met with rave reviews, before ending with a Disney Channel Original Movie. The reboot allegedly will not focus on Jett’s personal life with his friends and family, but solely focus on Silverstone’s exploits as he saves the world from all types of super spies, villains, and terrorists. There have been no rumors on who will be cast as Silverstone, or if Hawk or Artemus’s characters will appear this time around.

Zendaya (@zendaya) Talks Her Return To Disney (@Disney) + Why She Fired Her Racially Insensitive Publicist!

Zendaya is my Shero! I don’t care what anybody says. From Disney princess to World Wide Mega Star, Zendaya has shown and proved that she has undeniable star power and we owe her a huge CONGRATULATIONS for landing the latest cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine.

Zendaya C

“The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power,” Zendaya reveals in the July issue of Cosmopolitan. “One thing that is really important to me is diversity on the channel. It’s hard as a young person of a different ethnicity or background to look at the TV and not see anyone who looks like you. Representation is very important.”

Now, Zendaya serves not only as the star of K.C. Undercover but also a co-producer.

Zendaya’s outspokenness and strong stance on her beliefs does not just stop with Disney, it reflects in her personal life as well. Zendaya also reveals the reason she let go of her former publicist.

“I didn’t like my hair and makeup one time on a photo shoot, and my publicist told me, ‘You should just be happy with it—they haven’t had a black girl on the cover since forever’,” she shares.

“She’s no longer my publicist.”

I love that my daughters look up to Zendaya! She is the epitome of what a role model on TV looks like. Congrats Z!
