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
Raya and the Last Dragon will be led by Kelly Marie Tran (Star
Wars: The Last Jedi), who will be the first Southeast Asian to
lead a Disney animated film. The titular role was originally set
to be voiced by Cassie Steele (Rick and Morty), but the
filmmakers and studio have chosen to adjust their vision and
bring Tran in as the lead star, joining the previously cast
Awkwafina (The Farewell), who is starring as a dragon in human
form named Sisu.
In addition to Tran and Awkwafina, the cast for the film includes
Gemma Chan (Captain Marvel) as Raya's nemesis, Namaari; Daniel Dae
Kim (Hellboy) as Raya's visionary father, Benja; Sandra Oh
(Killing Eve) as Namaari's powerful mother, Virana; Benedict Wong
(Doctor Strange) as Tong, a formidable giant; Izaac Wang as Boun,
a 10-year-old entrepreneur; Thalia Tran as the mischievous toddler
Little Noi; Alan Tudyk (Harley Quinn) as Tuk Tuk, Raya's best
friend and trusty steed; Lucille Soong (Fresh Off the Boat) as
Dang Hu, the leader of the land of Talon; Patti Harrison (Shrill)
as the chief of the Tail land; and Ross Butler (To All the Boys:
P.S. I Still Love You) as chief of the Spine land.
Raya and the Last Dragon is co-directed by Don Hall (Big Hero 6),
Carlos Lopez Estrada (Blindspotting), Paul Briggs (Zootopia) and
John Ripa from a script written by Adele Lim (Crazy Rich Asians)
and Qui Nguyen.
The film will arrive in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier
Access on March 5.
