Storyline

Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. However, when sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned, and it's up to a lone warrior to track down the last dragon and stop the Druun for good.

Trivia

Tuk Tuk was created out of necessity, as the story required a mode of transportation for Raya. After brainstorming ideas for what could serve such a purpose in a fantasy environment, the filmmakers created a hybrid animal with the ability to curl into a ball and ride. The visual development artists later expanded on this idea to create a full-fledged character in Tuk Tuk. See more »

Goofs

In South East Asian culture in particular and Asian culture in general, it's consider rude to address people who are older or in higher status than you with only their names. Such as when Raya calls Tong or Boun calls Raya or Raya calls Sisu (a deity-like immortal dragon figure) with their respective names only. In many Asian cultures usually you would address people using familial relationship: you would call people who are slightly older than you with "brother/sister", people who are in the range of your parent's age with "uncle/auntie", people who are older than that with "grandpa/granny", and powerful/deity characters with something like "master/mistress". So in Asian cultures, Raya would call Tong "Uncle Tong", Boun would call Raya "Sis Raya", and Raya would address hundreds-year-old Sisu as "Master Sisu". See more »

Quotes

Raya: What do cats and Druun have in common?
Sisu: Um... they have no souls!
Raya: And they are afraid of water.

Crazy Credits

A message appears towards the end of the credits: "The making of this movie from over 400 individual homes was completely unprecedented, and relied entirely on the talent, ingenuity, and dedication of everyone at Walt Disney Animation Studios. The filmmakers would like to thank them for their tireless hard work, good humor, and most of all patience... with our inability to properly use the internet. (Dude, you're still on mute.)"

That's not how you make a good movie
6 March 2021 | by popitotoroSee all my reviews

Great animation, great visuals, good voice over for Raya, nice score, sure... But what an abysmal lack of imagination in EVERYTHING. Same goes for the story telling and building: while watching this movie I saw Edge of tomorrow, Avatar (the anime), Indiana jones, looney tunes (baby), Spirited Away, Mulan... Problem is, comparison only makes Raya and the Last Dragon look weaker and weaker as the references pop and you soon wish you would be watching any of those rather than this very dull tasting movie. When the 'tributes' are all you remember at the end of a movie, it's not the sign of a new 'classic'. Or maybe that's now the definition of a Disney classic? Thank god Pixar is still making good original movies (Soul is great). Otherwise I wholeheartedly recommend Klaus from last year, to cheer you up after a disappointing viewing.
