Disney has decided to go a step further in the diversity of its princesses and stories, and it seems that now it wants to look a little more towards the Asian continent. In 2020 we will not only have the live-action version of ‘Mulán’, but a new animated film that responds to the name of ‘Raya and the last dragon’ and that will also transport us to ancient Asia, that era of legends, adventures … and dragons. The long-rumoured project was officially confirmed and announced at Disney’s Expo D-23, where exclusive footage and voice cast was revealed. Here we tell you everything you have to know about the film:
‘Raya and the last dragon’ Release date
The film had a premiere date set for November 27, 2020, competing in theatres with movies like ‘ The Eternals ‘ or’ Godzilla vs. Kong ‘, but finally, Disney has decided to delay the film until March 12, 2021, due to the Coronavirus crisis.
