At D23, Lee introduced “Raya and the Last Dragon” (November 25, 2020), a Southeast Asian fantasy/adventure, directed by former animators Paul Briggs and Dean Wellins (“Big Hero 6,” “Frozen”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Moana”), and scripted by Adele Lim (“Crazy Rich Asians”). It’s about lone warrior Raya (Cassie Steele) from the kingdom of Kumandra (five lands surrounded by a dragon-shaped sea), who teams up with a band of misfits to find the legendary dragon to save their kingdom from dark oppression. They discover Sisu (Awkwafina, from “Crazy Rich Asians”), a dragon trapped in a human body, and battle to bring light and unity back to their world.

“I’m excited for ‘Raya’,” said Lee, who enjoyed escaping the complexity of the story room to be able “to come in with outside perspective and help.” She’s bringing in Chris Buck, her directing partner on “Frozen” and “Frozen 2,” to be a part of the “Raya” Story Trust, which is evolving. “Obviously you have different projects and different writers,” she said, “and it’s great to get their voices in the room, but we try to keep the table at about 25, because there comes a point where the room becomes too big.”

You know what? I've come to think that this is the first time in a decade that we're getting two WDAS features with human female leads/Princesses in a row (unless you'll count the gap between Brave and Frozen :P). Which reminds me how it was last decade when we got The Princess and the Frog and Tangled right afterwards. I wonder if we'll going to get a teaser of Raya early next year, to recreate the buzz and synergy of WDAS habit of repetition.

We got Zootopia and Moana in the same year (plus Finding Dory).

Well, Zootopia and Finding Dory weren't exactly features with Princesses/human female leads. Sorry to nitpick.

You're right. I didn't notice the human part.

Out of all the animated movies of next year's this is my most anticipated !

I really hope Awkwafina get to improvise a LOT during voice recording !

I think the result would be GREAT.

Two questions about this movie

1:Will more voice actors be added to the cast later ?
2:Who will compose the score for this movie ?

This had better be true. Although Mother Gothel is hardly my idea of a good villain.

This is my most anticipated animated movie of next year and along with Dolitte and Mulan one of my overall most animated movies ! :dance:

Wonder if and when more voice actors for this movie will be revealed ?

Mother Gothel was definitely not on the same level as Maleficent and Cruella. At all.

Sure but at least she had a unique flair to her which aside from her and Dr. Facilier none of the other villains of the Revival era did. Slim pickings, I know.

I didn't mind Tamatoa despite not having as much as screentime as traditional villain and not really being the big bad of the film.

I actually liked King Candy/Turbo but most everyone else doesn't rank him as a great villain.

I agree that she's not on the same level as them, but I really like her. She's definitely my favorite villain from the revival. My second one would probably be King Candy or Dr. Facilier.

I hope it's true that this movie has a traditional villain. I don't mind surprise villains or films with no real antagonist if they're well done, but a traditional villain would be refreshing after so many surprise ones.

The way i feel about King Candy is on paper is weak. But the voice promfefece elevated the character to become really memorable and good.

I think That’s Why Alan Tyduck has been in every Walt Disney animation studio movie since. Without the great delivery by him( and the Equally great Swedish voice for him) King Candy would have been rather boring.


Also i too think Mother Gothel is a really good villain. When i see Tangled in theaters at age 13 she became my second favorite Disney villian after Hades !

I never liked King Candy as I felt he was a knockoff of the Mad Hatter. Both his design and performance was way too similar to that character which was distracting and made him less unique and special.
