Here at ET, we're obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of July 17 to July 23, this is what we're most excited about:

Why We're Obsessed With 'Raven's Home'

Raven Baxter has a catchy new tune to go with her spinoff, Raven's Home! That's right, That's So Raven star Raven-Symoné is back as everybody's favorite physic, who is now a divorced single mom with two kids -- Booker (Isaac Ryan Brown) and Nia (Navia Robinson), who clearly learned to bring the laughs from Raven's side of the family! Also reprising her role is BFF Chelsea Daniels (Anneleise van der Pol) and her son, Levi (Jason Maybaum). And fans are in for a real twist when one of Raven's kids seems to have inherited her ability to see the future. ET caught up with the cast in April, where Raven-Symone opened up about why she decided to return to her Disney Channel roots. "Oh my goodness...I wanted to do it!" she gushed. "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.'"

Raven's Home premieres Friday, July 21 on Disney Channel.

Why We're Obsessed With 'Dunkirk'

All hail, Harry Styles! The former One Direction singer will make his big screen acting debut in Christopher Nolan's war epic, Dunkirk, which chronicles the evacuation of the French city of Dunkirk in 1940. And while the casting of Styles caused a stir among skeptics who questioned the musician's acting chops, it was Nolan who set the record straight, even comparing the 23-year-old to casting Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight. "When I cast Heath Ledger as the Joker, it raised a lot of eyebrows and caused a lot of comment," Nolan told ET. "I have to trust my instincts, and Harry was perfect for this part." The singer-turned-actor plays a British soldier tucked on the beaches of Dunkirk during WWII who is joined by his A-list co-stars Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and Kenneth Branagh.

Why We're Obsessed With 'Girls Trip'

It's been 21 years since Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah were on the big screen together in their '90s crime drama, Set It Off, and now they are reuniting in what's sure to be summer's biggest breakout, Girls Trip. The female-centric comedy, which also features Regina Hall and newcomer Tiffany Haddish, is filled with laugh-out-loud-worthy scenes that will have you and your girl squad falling off your seats! In the movie, four friends travel to New Orleans for a fun weekend, but what starts off as a trip to rekindle sisterhood turns into rediscovering wild sides salacious enough to make The Big Easy blush. "You're going to see some fights; you're going to see some dance battles; you're going to see some grown things," Pinkett Smith told ET while on the set of the film earlier this year. Not only does Girls Trip bring the big laughs, but there's plenty of star power behind this flick.

After one of its most tumultuous seasons, the Shahs of Sunset is back, but what will season six bring now that almost everything has changed with the cast? Asa Rahmati gave birth to her baby, Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi got married and divorced, Mercedes 'MJ' Javid had a health scare with her beloved father, Mike Shouhed's divorce became official and Reza Farahan lost 40 pounds, shaved his mustache and is looking into options for having a child with his husband.
