“Raven’s Home” is kicking things up a notch with an epic musical episode.
“Raven’s Home: Remix” premieres tonight and the uber-talented cast will get to show off their singing, dancing AND rapping skills. In the episode, Booker sets out to land the starring role in the school’s musical about a boy who loves playing basketball and performing hip-hop. When Raven has a vision of Booker receiving a standing ovation, she’s convinced he’s perfect for the role and encourages him to go for it. However, when Nia discovers the part requires someone who is great at basketball and can rap – two things Tess excels at – she tries to convince Coach Spitz to let Tess audition for the role. When he refuses because Tess is a girl, a determined Nia takes a stand to prove girls can do anything boys can do.
We had the chance to talk with Navia Robinson, Sky Katz & Jason Maybaum about the episode which seemed like such a fun thing to film. In addition to the amazing music, the episode has a lot of important messages that include gender equality and more.
