Disney’s next animated film will take fans into the magical world of dragons.
The first trailer for Raya and the Last Dragon dropped on Wednesday, with Star Wars’ Kelly Marie Tran voicing the titular character on her quest to bring peace to her people.
Raya and the Last Dragon follows as Raya and Tuk Tuk are forced to leave their home in the fictional kingdom of Kumandra while it’s under threat from an evil force.
“My whole life I trained to become a guardian of the dragon gem, but this world has changed and its people are divided,” Raya says in the trailer. “Now, to restore peace, I must find the last dragon.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tran expressed her excitement for the fantasy animated film.
“She is someone who is technically a princess but I think that what’s really cool about this project, about this character, specifically is that everyone’s trying to flip the narrative on what it means to be a princess,” Tran said.
“Raya is totally a warrior. When she was a kid, she was excited to get her sword. And she grows up to be a really badass, gritty warrior and can really take care of herself,” she added.
Directed by Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada and written by Paul Briggs and John Ripa, Ray and the Last Dragon stars Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina.
The animated movie premieres on March 12, 2021.
