‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Trailer: Kelly Marie Tran and a Growing Tuk Tuk Join Forces on Animated Adventure (Video)
Disney’s released the trailer for its latest animated movie “Raya and the Last Dragon” on Wednesday, and the feature film starring Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina looks to be straight fire.

In the two-minute, two-second preview, Raya (voiced by Tran) and her increasingly large animal sidekick Tuk Tuk go in search of the last dragon, Sisu (voiced by rapper/actress Awkwafina), in an attempt to bring warring communities together. We think.

The clip features a combination of martial-arts action scenes, some “Indiana Jones”-like treasure-hunting and, of course, some adorable animal-sidekick moments courtesy of the armadillo-esque Tuk Tuk.

Raya and the Last Dragon” is set in a fantasy world called Kumandra and follows a lone warrior named Raya who journeys on a quest to find the rumored last dragon. She believes that this dragon can save Kumandra from an evil force, but the dragon Sisu has become trapped in

5 Funniest (& 5 Saddest) Moments In Big Hero 6
Big Hero 6 is one of Disney's most heartwarming films. Set in a blend between San Fransisco and Tokyo, the film has a unique take on friendship, grief, and technology. Baymax, a robot designed to be a healthcare companion, is one of Disney's best creations and is a big part of why the film is so funny.

Over the Moon Release Date and Trailers Tease Netflix’s Optimistic Animated Feature

Over the Moon Release Date and Trailers Tease Netflix’s Optimistic Animated Feature
Over the Moon, an animated feature heads to Netflix in October, showcasing an aesthetically impressive, awe-inspiring tale of wonder and randomly-erupting musical sequences that’s out to prove that Disney+ isn’t the only place on which its genre flourishes.

The film focuses on the exploits of a young Asian-American girl, who—having been entranced by a myth about a goddess who accidentally floated away from her true love to be exiled on the moon—embarks on a cosmic endeavor of building a rocket for a lunar visit of her own. Despite the problematic practicalities of its plot mechanics, Over the Moon appears destined to become a family-aimed crowd-pleaser, and also serves as valuable representation for a demographic that’s infrequently set in a protagonist capacity in Western features.

On that note, do check out the trailers for Over the Moon just below!

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Review (Spoiler-Free)

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Review (Spoiler-Free)
This Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous review contains no spoilers.

My five year old nestled under one arm. My ten year old clutched the other. And I’ll admit, my hands were covering my face a couple of times. That, in a nutshell, was the family experience of watching the first season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.

If you’re familiar with the legacy of Jurassic Park, you know the premise: there’s a theme park full of genetically engineered dinosaurs (where some catastrophe always happens). Based on the events of the first season, the series takes place concurrent to the events in Jurassic World, in which a monstrous original dinosaur engineered by Dr. Henry Wu, the Indominus Rex, escapes to terrorize the park.

The series opens with Darius, who had dreamed of visiting Jurassic World with his father for years before his father’s (implied) death. He wins a free

The Top Five Asian Characters In Disney Films

The Top Five Asian Characters In Disney Films
This shouldn’t need pointing out, but Disney doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to the representation of Asian people in its films, and we’re including both its live-action movies and its animations in that statement. Although the company has been trying to take steps forward and redress the balance in reach years, Disney productions tend to be very white, and very American even when they’re set in parts of the world that are thousands of miles away from America. Not all of the blame for that should be laid at the feet of the people who run Disney today, as many of the company’s ‘classic’ animations were made during the mid 20th century when views weren’t as progressive as they are today, but there’s still something of a historical dearth when it comes to positive representations of Asian characters.

Should Big Hero Six Be Called Out for Whitewashing?

Should Big Hero Six Be Called Out for Whitewashing?
The consensus at this time when it comes to the whitewashing issue that for some reason has been leveled at Big Hero 6, one of Disney’s better-animated movies in the past decades, is that it really doesn’t exist. If one wants to take a look at the comic that inspired the movie, y’ know, the comic that very few people knew about until the movie was actually out and ready to be viewed, there’s less diversity there than there is in the animated version since Honey Lemon is white, Fred is white, Hiro and his older brother are definitely mixed
