RAVEN’S Home is a com­edy spin-off of That’s So Raven which was launched on the Dis­ney Chan­nel this week.

It brings Raven-Sy­moné back as Raven Bax­ter, and finds her and best friend Chelsea (An­neliese van der Pol) di­vorced with kids of their own.

They come to­gether to raise their chil­dren – Raven’s twins Booker and Nia, and Chelsea’s son Levi. Raven still sees the fu­ture – and Booker has the same abil­ity.

Here Raven talks about her en­thu­si­asm for the show:

Why re­turn now Raven?

I WANTED to come back to Dis­ney Chan­nel and cre­ate again. This is my home. Why do you think That’s So Raven is pop­u­lar? WE had – and have – fun on set. We are al­ways try­ing to make each other laugh; when you cap­ture it on film, peo­ple see it, feel it and love it.

You’re an ex­ec­u­tive Pro­ducer on Raven’s Home?

I COME in when I feel I need to be heard – but my fo­cus is on the kids.

I am there for them be­cause I re­mem­ber be­ing young in the in­dus­try.

How se­ri­ously do you take your po­si­tion as a role model?

I’M deal­ing with chil­dren un­der 16 ev­ery­day, I know they are very im­pres­sion­able, so I take my po­si­tion as a role model more se­ri­ously now than I did be­fore.

At the same time, I’m not chang­ing who I am. RAVEN’S Home is on the Dis­ney Chan­nel now

Raven-Sy­moné reprises her role for new Dis­ney Chan­nel pro­gramme Raven’s Home
