We are less than two months away from a stacked plethora of content and Disney is ramping up their marketing for the 59th animated motion picture, Raya and the Last Dragon! Back in December during Disney’s Investor’s Meeting, WDAS chief creative officer Jennifer Lee announced that the film would get a dual release in theaters and on Disney+ via Premier Access. The movie is scheduled for March 5th! This morning Disney released a brand new trailer giving fans a little more insight into the movie’s characters, plot, and the beautiful southeast Asian-inspired fantasy world of Kumandra!

Along with that, we got some new casting announcements! Joining Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina are Eternals’ Gemma Chan as Raya’s nemesis, Namaari; Hellboy’s Daniel Dae Kim as Raya’s visionary father, Benja; Grey’s Anatomy Sandra Oh as Namaari’s powerful mother, Virana; Doctor Strange’s Benedict Wong as Tong, a formidable giant; Good Boys’ Izaac Wang as Boun, a 10-year-old entrepreneur; LIttle’s Thalia Tran as the mischievous toddler Little Noi; Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Alan Tudyk as Tuk Tuk, Raya’s best friend and trusty steed; Freaky Friday’s Lucille Soong as Dang Hu, the leader of the land of Talon; A Simple Favor’s Patti Harrison as the chief of the Tail land; and Shazam’s Ross Butler as chief of the Spine land. Wowza! What a cast!
So far the movie looks absolutely incredible! It’s different than anything the mouse house has made from their previous animated outings. I’m totally digging the Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider vibe it’s giving off. Raya and the Last Dragon is directed by Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada, with Paul Briggs and John Ripa co-directing. Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho are the producers, and Qui Nguyen and Adele Lim are the writers.
