Disney's 'Raya & The Last Dragon' Will Be Released on Disney+ The Same Day as it Hits Theaters

Disney has announced that the highly anticipated animated film Raya and the Last Dragon will be released on the streaming service Disney+ on the same day it hits theaters.

The upcoming movie will become a Disney+ Premiere Access title, which means subscribers will have to pay an additional fee to watch the movie while it’s still in theaters. The streamer did this with Mulan earlier this year.

Raya and the Last Dragon will be released in theaters on March 12, 2021 and it will be available for streaming that day as well.

Disney+ charged an extra $29.99 for unlimited views of Mulan, though it’s unclear what the pricing structure will be for Raya. If you didn’t want to pay the extra money to watch the live-action version of Mulan, we have some good news for you.

Raya and the Last Dragon is coming!

The highly anticipated movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios, featuring Kelly Marie Tran as the voice of Raya, is set to open in U.S. theaters on March 12, 2021.

Here’s a plot summary: “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.”

The film is helmed by directors Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada, co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, producers Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho, and features Awkwafina as the last dragon Sisu.

One Disney film is no longer heading to theaters amid the pandemic.

Here's Why Kelly Marie Tran's 'Rise of Skywalker' Role Was Reduced

Kelly Marie Tran‘s screentime in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a mere 76 seconds out of the movie’s 2 hours and 35 minutes- and now a writer is speaking out about why.

Chris Terrio, who co-wrote the film, opened up about the character of Rose Tico’s reduced role in the film.

“One of the reasons that Rose has a few less scenes than we would like her to have has to do with the difficulty of using Carrie Fisher’s footage in the way we wanted to,” Chris shared with Awards Daily.

“We wanted Rose to be the anchor at the rebel base who was with Leia. We thought we couldn’t leave Leia at the base without any of the principals who we love, so Leia and Rose were working together … As the process evolved, a few scenes we’d written with Rose and Leia turned out to not meet the standard of photorealism that we’d hoped for. Those scenes, unfortunately, fell out of the film.”

He went on to explain the situation: “The last thing we were doing was deliberately trying to sideline Rose. We adore the character, and we adore Kelly — so much so that we anchored her with our favorite person in this galaxy, General Leia.”
