Raya and the Last Dragon Sneak Peek Goes Inside the Making of a New Disney Classic
Disney has released a brand new featurette that takes a behind-the-scenes look at Raya and the Last Dragon. Titled "Crafting Raya," it offers a glimpse into what it took to bring the movie to life.

The video offers a new look at the upcoming epic fantasy-adventure. It features stars Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Awkwafina (Ocean's 8), as well as the filmmakers.

‘White Snake’ Film Review: Epic Saga Heralds New Wave of Chinese Animation

Computer-generated animation produced outside of high-budgeted U.S. studios has deteriorated into a minefield of technique plagued with soulless, talking-animal cash grabs.
