Raya and the Last Dragon – March 5, 2021
In order to stop sinister monsters known as the Druun, Raya goes on a quest to stop them for good and track down the last dragon, who is quite an interesting character. When watching the trailer it instantly reminded me of Moana which was reassured when I saw the “from the studios that brought you Moana”. Also, similarly to Moana, Raya wants to restore her homeland back to the way it was when there was harmony. This is also another first for Disney as Raya is the first Southeast Asian Disney princess. We love to see it!
