Normally, this is the time of year when the big movie releases really start to roll out in theaters. Well most of the world is still in "new normal" mode, so Walt Disney Studios is bringing back Disney+ Premier Access for Raya And The Last Dragon, along with releasing the film in theaters where it's safe.
Today, we got a big update prior to the film's March 5th release. You see the new poster above, now take a look at the new trailer:
We knew some of the names in this terrific voice cast, but now the full cast has been revealed. It includes 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.
Just in case you are unfamiliar with the story, 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."
Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada will direct, along with co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa. Qui Nguyen and Adele Lim wrote the script, produced by Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho.
Raya And The Last Dragon will be in select theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access on March 5th. Remember, for Premier Access, it will be $29.99 and the movie will remain in your Disney+ account. Keep checking back for updates and our review.
