The official synopsis for Raya and the Last Dragon reads: “Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans, and dragons lived together in harmony. But when sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the last dragon in order to finally stop the Druun for good. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than dragon magic to save the world—it’s going to take trust as well.”
Raya and the Last Dragon features the voices of Star Wars vet Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as Sisu. The cast also includes Gemma Chan as Namaari, Daniel Dae Kim, Chief Benja, Sandra Oh as Virana, Benedict Wong as Tong, Alan Tudyk as Tuk Tuk, and more.
Raya and the Last Dragon will debut simultaneously on Disney+ Premier Access and in theaters on March 5, 2021. The movie was originally supposed to be released in Nov. 2020, but the film was delayed to the COVID-19 pandemic. Raya and the Last Dragon’s simultaneous drop on Disney+ and in theaters is part of Disney’s new strategy in the wake of the pandemic.
