Raya and the Last Dragon is now available to stream on Disney + at no additional cost. After airing simultaneously in theaters and on the streaming service in March, the animated film was available with Premier Access for an additional $ 30. It’s now officially rolled out from behind the paywall, meaning every monthly subscriber can watch the movie anytime for no more than the cost of the Disney + monthly subscription.
Bringing Raya and the last dragon from behind the paywall, this way is similar to the release model of last year’s live-action movie Mulan. Due to the pandemic and the widespread shutdown of theaters, Mulan was one of the first films to be made available on Disney + through Premier Access. After three months, it was then made available for streaming at no additional cost. Black Widow and Jungle Cruise will also be available on Disney + this summer via Premier Access, but it’s unclear whether they’ll also be out of the paywall after three months.
The pandemic also affected the exit of Raya and the Last Dragon. The film was originally slated for release in November 2020 before being pushed back to March 12, 2021. It was then moved forward a week to its March 5 release date, hitting Disney + with Premier Access the same. day. It was previously available free to subscribers in Latin America on April 23 before becoming available in other countries quite recently.
Raya and the Last Dragon is directed by Don Hall and Carlos Lopez Estrada. Qui Nguyen and Adele Lim wrote the screenplay. The film stars Kelly Marie Tran as Raya with Awkwafina as Sisu, the dragon, as well as Izaac Wang, Gemma Chan, Daniel Dae Kim, Benedict Wong, Sandra Oh, Thalia Tran, Lucille Soong and Alan Tudyk . The film was a hit for Disney, given the circumstances of the movie industry, and Tran has said she would be up for a sequel if House of the Mouse is interested.
“I would absolutely be interested,” Tran told Decider. “I love this world and this character and I haven’t heard anything so I can’t tell you. Yeah, I really don’t know.”
Tran also said that she hopes Raya and Namaari (Gemma Chan) ‘s relationship will turn romantic, adding, “I love their relationship, I think it’s very clear too – there are even specific lines in it. movie – where they both talk pretty much like, ‘Oh, if things had been different, we could have been friends, or it might have been a different way.’ Listen, I was [rooting for romance] too much. Yeah, I don’t know, I hope we get a sequel. We’ll see what happens to them. I mean, I was probably the first person to send these characters! “
It’s also possible that the world of Raya and the Last Dragon will be expanded with a new series on Disney +. In December, it was announced at the Disney Investor Meeting that Walt Disney Animation Studios was producing a TV series based on Moana, due for release in 2023. With Raya hitting Disney fans pretty well, there are strong chances of this movie getting that. same treatment too. Either way, you can watch Raya and the Last Dragon right now on Disney +.
