Finally, A Disney Movie on Southeast Asian Cultures and Diversity

Get ready for a new heroine. Raya and the Last Dragon, an upcoming fantasy-action-adventure from Walt Disney Animation Studios, was announced during the Walt Disney Studios panel at D23 Expo sometimes two weeks ago. 

The animated film follows Raya, a lone warrior from the fantasy kingdom of Kumandra,described as "a reimagined earth inhabited by an ancient civilization". Five clans form the land of the dragon, and Raya is determined to find the last dragon, teams up with a crew of misfits in her quest to find the Last Dragon — thus bringing light and unity back to their world. Cassie Steele will voice the lead character Raya, and Awkwafina lends her voice to Sisu, the Last Dragon.

 Chief Creative Officer Jennifer Lee brought out directors Paul Briggs and Dean Wellins (Big Hero 6Frozen), producer Osnat Shurer (Moana), and writer Adele Lim to introduce this incredible film to a packed crowd at D23 Expo, accompanied by a viewing of an exclusive three-minute piece.
