Raya and the Last Dragon

Disney animated fantasy adventure, set in a world called Kumandra, where a warrior searches for the last dragon. From the writer of Crazy Rich Asians, featuring the voices of Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Golden Globe winner Awkwafina (The Farewell).

Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. But when sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the last dragon in order to finally stop the Druun for good. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than dragon magic to save the world—it’s going to take trust as well.

It's the interplay between the warrior and the wiseacre that makes a stock storyline snap, crackle and pop.

Awkwafina and Tran lend so much skillfully wrought feeling to the material, the movie's occasional bumps don't much matter.

I left the cinema thinking that the world is not quite like it is at the end of this movie, but we might all be happier if it was.

Disney's latest is, in many ways, a film that fits the mold of what's come before, but Raya and the Last Dragon is also an overdue step in a new direction.

Feels fresh not just for the mere fact of its female-forward and predominately Asian cast, but for the breeziness with which it bears the weight of Disney history...
