As expected Raya and the Last Dragon is perfect! I’m talking funny, breathtakingly beautiful, simply written and yet so effective. Its main character Raya, voiced by the wonderful Kelly Marie Tran, sets herself on a mission to save the world; a classic tale told by thousands. But what makes this story memorable is the heart behind this Disney wonder.
I don’t want to say too much because it’ll give the story away but I was overcome by emotion watching this movie which concludes with a message so profound it made me weep.
It’s the perfect movie to see right now and a delightful treat for little ones. The Southeast-Asian representation was awe-inspiring and so magnificent. I’m not even Asian and I was proud! (It’s just so nice seeing Disney depict these vibrant and diverse cultures so respectfully.) And of course, it has plenty of girl power moments.
All in all, if you’re a fan of Disney this is a must-watch.
95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
