Overview

Disney has evolved through time from showing princesses who were trying to find true love to those fighting against marriage and being independent. Raya and the Last Dragon tells the story of yet another warrior princess. There is very few information regarding the movie. However, we know the story is set in a fantasy land called Kumandra. The production team had travelled through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Indonesia to study about the place and people to develop this movie. A teaser was released showcasing a beautiful warrior princess and a dragon in the background.

Further, the movie portrays Raya, a warrior who sets out to find the last dragon to save her land. It is likely to feature the relationship between the dragon and the princess.
