Disney has released a new trailer for Raya and the Last Dragon, the 59th film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Okay, this looks like it could be quite fun. I definitely chuckled at the “con baby” and “group project” bits. Disney has definitely been going outside of the box lately regarding their animated films. Moana and Zootopia were two highly successful films back in 2016 that were not based on any existing, mainstream fairy tale.
So with that in mind, I’ll give Raya and the Last Dragon a chance. But good luck convincing me to spend $30 to watch it on Disney + Premier Access because that is not happening.
The movie 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.
Raya and the Last Dragon hits theaters and Disney+ Premier Access on March 5, 2021.
