Raven-Symoné has been cast to voice Valkyrie in Disney XD's Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout animated series.

She'll debut in an episode that brings the Guardians to Knowhere.

“I am a Marvel [fan] and I am a comic book fan and I’m a super fan of Guardians of the Galaxy,” Symoné told HollywoodLife. “What I love about Guardians of the Galaxy is that it’s comedy, it’s action, it’s twists, it’s turns, and the characters are well-rounded,” 

“Valkyrie is a calm, cool, awesome chick,” Symoné said of her character, who has a "competitive" relationship with Gamora. “Finding ways to just push each other’s buttons throughout the whole episode is kind of fun."

This dynamic somewhat mirrors the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where Valkyrie's Asgardian ally Thor has a rivalry with Guardians leader Peter Quill. Tessa Thompson portrays Valkyrie in live action.

Symoné debuts as Valkyrie in the May 19 episode of Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout.
