Walt Disney Animation Studio‘s next theatrical (?) film, Raya and the Last Dragon, was officially announced in 2019 at Disney’s D23 Expo and was expected to debut this November. Of course, the pandemic happened, which shifted the movie and allowed for many changes including the voice of the main character.
Now the film is expected next year, and we are finally getting a trailer for it. Before we take a look though, here is the summary for the film:
Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together 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. From directors Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada, co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, producers Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho, and featuring the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as the last dragon Sisu, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Raya and the Last Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on March 2021.
Now, let’s see if Raya can achieve “The Glow”:
Teasing the teaser trailer, Disney released a poster for the film yesterday:
Hopefully Raya and the Last Dragon will fare better than Pixar‘s Soul, which got pandemic-shifted to Disney+. It is expected that you can find Raya and the Last Dragon in theaters March 12, 2021.
