Disney has released a big new international trailer for their upcoming CG-animated feature Raya and the Last Dragon.
Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars) voices the titular Raya, a young woman who finds herself teaming up with the last dragon, Sisu (voiced by Awkwafina), on a mission to face the evil that’s divided the land for centuries. The voice cast includes Daniel Dae Kim, Gemma Chan, Sandra Oh and Benedict Wong, among others.
We get plenty of new footage in the trailer, showcasing more of film’s action and emotional side. It’s easy to expect a hit here; it looks like the type of colourful, energetic, heartfelt recipe that’s provided Disney with winners countless times over the year. The film has four filmmakers at the helm: directed by Don Hall (Moana, Big Hero 6) and Carlos López Estrada (Legion, Blindspotting), with Paul Briggs and John Ripa on board as co-directors.
Raya and the Last Dragon will be in Australian cinemas on March 4th and in the US from March 5th. As with the recent Mulan remake, the film will also be made available on Disney+‘s Premier Access (yep, additional fees) on March 5th.

Official synopsis for Raya and the Last Dragon:
“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.
