Disney has unveiled the full-length trailer for Raya and the Last Dragon, the studio’s upcoming CG-animated adventure inspired by Southeast Asian cultures.
The film takes place in the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars) voices Raya, a lone warrior who finds herself having to track down the last dragon, Sisu (Awkwafina), to help face an evil force, restore the fractured land and bring together her divided people.
Don Hall (co-director of Moana and Big Hero 6) and Carlos López Estrada (Blindspotting) direct from a screenplay by Adele Lim (Crazy Rich Asians) and Qui Nguyen (The Society). The voice cast includes 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; and Alan Tudyk as Tuk Tuk, Raya’s best friend and trusty steed; among others.
As with Disney’s recent Mulan remake, Raya and the Last Dragon is heading to Disney+ as a Premier Access (yep, additional fees) release on March 5th. But, thankfully, it’s also hitting cinemas: In Australia from March 4th and in the US from 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.
