Today, Walt Disney Animation Studios unveiled the first look at warrior Raya and her trusty steed Tuk Tuk, from the upcoming RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON.
It was also revealed that Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, “Sorry For Your Loss”) will voice Raya, joining Awkwafina (“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance“, The Farewell) as the voice of the dragon, Sisu.
Don Hall (Big Hero 6, Winnie the Pooh) and Carlos López Estrada (Blindspotting, “Legion”) are directing, with Paul Briggs (The Princess and the Frog, Frozen Fever) and John Ripa (The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Treasure Planet) co-directing. Osnat Shurer (Moana, Jack-Jack Attack) and Peter Del Vecho (Frozen 2, Hercules) are the producers, and Qui Nguyen and Adele Lim (Crazy Rich Asians) are writers on the project.
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.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON opens in U.S. theaters on March 12, 2021.
