Raya and the Last Dragon (2021 Film) Review

I remember when Raya and The Last Dragon came out earlier this year. I knew I was going to like it, but I wasn’t willing to pay the 30 bucks Disney+ was asking for. Now that the movie is old enough to be on Disney+ for free, I finally got a chance to watch it.

The film is set in a fictional world that resembles a lot of Asian culture. The land was once unified but after the death of the dragons, the whole land is split into several different kingdoms that hate each other. Raya and her father guard a mystical gem that keeps evil from turning everyone to stone. But when a warrior princess from a rival kingdom tricks Raya, the gem is broken.

Raya and her father try to flee but he’s turned to stone. As she grows up, she goes on a quest to find the broken pieces of the gems and put some back together. But it won’t be an easy task especially as every gem piece is guarded by very powerful people.

Raya happens to accidentally revive Sisu, the last dragon that saved the world with the power of that same gemstone. She finds out that the legendary dragon is actually far more incompetent than she ever imagined. Can the two of them save the world?

I knew I would like Raya and the Last Dragon and that proves mostly true. I can definitely tell that the same team behind Moana made this film but I would say I prefer Moana more. It’s definitely not the best work Disney has ever done, but it’s pretty darn good.

Score: B+
