Raya and the last dragon are swept away in the trailer. Disney has unveiled a full trailer for their next animated adventure – the first original since 2016 Moana – which is inspired by the cultures of Southeast Asia and includes Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Akwavafina (Ocean Eight), Gema Chan (Captain marvel), Daniel D. Kim (Hawaii Five-0), Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy), and Benedict Wong (Doctor strange) is. Raya and the Last Dragon are directed by Don Hall (Big Hero 6) and Carlos López Estrada (Blindspotting), from the script by playwright Qi Nguyen and Adele Lim (Crazy Rich Asian).
Raya (Mary Tran) Raya and the Last Dragon say at the beginning of the trailer, “Well, remember what we’re seeing and don’t trust anyone”. Soon, she runs into a “con-baby” named Noi (Thalia Tran), who escapes from Raya’s clutches with the help of three Macaws. Raya then introduces the founding of his film: Their land has been at war forever, but Raya’s father Benja (Daniel Day Kim) believes they can come together. To achieve this, Raya must find the last dragon.
Raya appears as a “fellowship” to help him. Tong (Benedict Wong), an earlier little girl Noi, and a boy called Bown (Ijak Wang). And after six years of finding and avoiding rival organizations – including Raya’s Nemesari Namari (Gemma Chan) – in search of the dragon, Raya finally runs into the water dragon Sisu (Akwavafina). Sisu out “is not the best dragon.” His words are not mine.
“Have you ever done, like, a group project, but there is, like, a kid who didn’t pitch in much, but still ended up with the same grade?” Sisu makes rhetoric in the trailer of Raya and Last Dragon.
Namari introduces himself and demands to bring the dragon, but Raya draws his sword while launching into a fight. This is not the only time they will collide on Raya and the Last Dragon, with the trailer giving us a glimpse of another sword fight inside a deserted castle.
The trailer of The Raya and The Last Dragon shifts to Sisu Shape as a human, and a joke about how close his butt is to his head as a dragon.
In addition to Mary Tran, Tran, Dee Kim, Wong, Wang, Chan, and Akwavafina, Raya, and The Last Dragon also play the voices of Sandra Oh as Namai’s powerful mom Virana, Raya’s best friend as Alan Tychek and the trusty stud tuk Present as tuk. And Lucille Soung as the land leader Dang Hu.
