Walt Disney Animation Studios has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming fantasy-adventure film, Raya and the Last Dragon.
Set in a fantasy world where long ago, dragons and humans lived side-by-side until an evil force caused the demise of dragons.
Centuries later and the same evil force has returned, prompting the warrior Raya (Kelly Marie Tran) to seek out the legendary last dragon in order to save the world, and unite its feuding people.
Raya and the Last Dragon comes to us from the makers of Moana (2016) and Frozen (2013) and features the same stunning animation style seen in those films.
In the first teaser trailer below, we meet Raya and her super-cute companion, have a look at some of her tomb-raiding skills, and get a feel for the world and the characters that inhabit it – though no sign of the last dragon.
Disney has been the leaders of the animated film circuit for a long time now and it looks like Raya and the Last Dragon will continue their dominant trend, as we can expect it to feature all of the themes that fans have come to love about these films.
So far, the only other cast member that’s been revealed is that of The Farwell (2019) standout Awkawafina’s role as the last dragon.
Check out the trailer below, and expect to see the film in cinemas on 12 March 2021.
