Today, the trailer for Disney’s next epic, Raya and the Last Dragon, dropped online and we finally got a good look at the story as well as our first taste of Awkwafina as Sisu, the last dragon.
We don’t want to ruin it for you, but the movie looks like a lot of fun and it definitely makes sense that it comes from the same creative team as Moana. This will be one of the first movies that Disney releases simultaneously in theaters and via their premier pass on Disney+. It’ll be interesting to see where the movie gets traction and how that will impact release strategies moving forward. No matter where you choose to check out Raya, you’ll be able to do it on March 5th.
About Raya and the Last Dragon: “Raya and the Last Dragon” takes us on an exciting, epic journey to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well. “Raya and the Last Dragon” features an outstanding voice cast, including Kelly Marie Tran as the voice of the intrepid warrior Raya; Awkwafina as the legendary dragon, Sisu; Gemma Chan as Raya’s nemesis, Namaari; Daniel Dae Kim as Raya’s visionary father, Benja; Sandra Oh as Namaari’s powerful mother, Virana; Benedict Wong as Tong, a formidable giant; Izaac Wang as Boun, a 10-year-old entrepreneur; Thalia Tran as the mischievous toddler Little Noi; Alan Tudyk as Tuk Tuk, Raya’s best friend and trusty steed; Lucille Soong as Dang Hu, the leader of the land of Talon; Patti Harrison as the chief of the Tail land; and Ross Butler as chief of the Spine land.
