Disney is pulling out all the stops in an absolutely beautiful first image for Raya and the Last Dragon.
Walt Disney Animation Studios unveiled the first look at warrior Raya and her trusty steed Tuk Tuk, from the upcoming animated film Raya and the Last Dragon.
It was also revealed that Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi) will voice Raya, joining Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians) as the voice of the dragon, Sisu. Awkwafina is also lending her voice to Disney’s upcoming live action The Little Mermaid as Scuttle.
Raya and the Last Dragon is a story of 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.
Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada are directing, with Paul Briggs and John Ripa co-directing. Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho are the producers, and Qui Nguyen and Adele Lim are writers on the project. The film is also going to be one of the first Disney Animation features to be developed from remote locations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Raya and the Last Dragon opens in U.S. theaters on March 12, 2021.
