Disney's New Animated Dragon

Raya and the Last Dragon: Everything You Need to Know

Raya and the Last Dragon: Everything You Need to Know

(04/13/2020)

This fall, Walt Disney Animation will take us to a magical new kingdom where dragons once soared through the skies. RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON takes place in a world not unlike the distant past of our own Earth. Even in this fantasy realm, however, dragons have vanished, and one young warrior embarks upon a quest to find the last remaining dragon.

Here's everything we know about Disney's new animated movie RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON.

RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON comes to theatres on March 12, 2020.

Is There a Raya and the Last Dragon Trailer?

Not yet! Three minutes of animation was shown to attendees at Disney's D23 conference in August 2019, but that footage has not yet been released online.

What Is Raya and the Last Dragon About?

We know that the movie takes place in a land called Lumandra, which was described at the D23 conference as "a reimagined earth inhabited by an ancient civilization" in which five clans make up the population of the major land. The title character, Raya, is a warrior, but we know little else about her background. Raya seeks the last dragon in her world, and finds Sisu, said to be "a water dragon who is the last of her kind and can transform into a human."

The Cast of Raya and the Last Dragon

Right now, we only know of two voice actors in the RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON cast. Cassie Steele plays Raya, "a fearless and passionate warrior with a winning charm who is searching for the last dragon." And then Nora Lum, aka Awkwafina (THE FAREWELL, CRAZY RICH ASIANS), voices the water dragon Sisu.

RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON is directed by Paul Briggs and Dean Wellins and co-directed by John Ripa. All three have worked in the story department on recent Disney Animation movies like BIG HERO 6 and ZOOTOPIA. This is the directorial debut for Briggs and Wellins.

The fantasy movie is written by Adele Lim (CRAZY RICH ASIANS, "Lethal Weapon," "Life on Mars"), who said at D23 that RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON will be informed by southeast Asian themes.
