Raya and the Last Dragon is an upcoming American animated film produced at Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is scheduled to be released on March 5, 2021 and will be the 59th animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon.[4][3]

Synopsis

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 as well.

Cast

Development

Raya and the Last Dragon's development goes back to 2017, when Disney shelved Gigantic, a re-telling of Jack and the Beanstalk that would've taken place in 15th century Spain and focused on the young hero befriending an 11-year-old giantess. The then-untitled animation project had a November 25, 2020 release date announced when Disney revealed its theatrical release plans through 2022.

Release

Raya and the Last Dragon was originally scheduled to be released on November 25, 2020, but due to the 2019–2020 coronavirus pandemic, it was pushed back to March 12, 2021.[7] This was later advanced one week to March 5, 2021, with a simultaneous release on the streaming service Disney+, via paid purchase through its "Premiere Access" service. The film will be made available to all subscribers of Disney+ regardless of a separate purchase on June 4, 2021.[8]

Reception

Raya and the Last Dragon has received critical acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film currently has a Certified Fresh of 96% of critic reviews. On Metacritic the film has received a rating of 76%. On IGN, the film has a rating of 8/10.
