Raya and the Last Dragon: I know that Disney these days has an embarrassment of riches
Raya and the Last Dragon – but it’s a little frustrating that riot in the last dragon is coming out
the same day as the Wanda vision finale because this movie deserves
its own window for discussion because it’s truly incredible it just could have
come out a week later.
it’s frustrating I believe that under Jennifer lee’s leadership I’m so happy for her
you know she’s really doing amazing doing an amazing job as the new head of
Disney animation remember after john Lasseter’s unfortunate.
this is his first directing gig and animation
although it seems he’s going to be sticking around with disney for the for a long time
after seeing this movie I totally understand and then also screenwriters
like queen wen and adele lim also new to animation I believe we’re entering
a new Disney renaissance and while this isn’t a musical
I would say that riot in the last dragon is at the level of Howard Ashman’s Disney
work I know and Ashman himself, of course, was new to
animation coming from musical theater and I don’t want to discredit the work
that animators and you know career-long you know animation art artists
bring to this work but I think it’s the excitement.
with no spoilers in just a moment but first overall what’s so impressive
about raya in the last dragon is its scope the film itself not including
the credits is we have to do that now
uh you know wanda vision uh is an hour and a half long
you get an hour and a half of movie the same length actually is both
frozen films and while the frozen films are iconic Raya has even more story
it’s not a musical so every minute advances the story think instead of musical
numbers you get fight sequences so cool.
i was thrilled i was wowed i cried i genuinely cried they got me
it was great is it worth the 30 for premiere access that’s the thirty dollar
question well of course that’s up to you
but i guarantee you that you will watch this movie at least twice
i’m definitely gonna watch it again when it debuts uh this coming weekend
it’s that good it is a world you will
definitely want to spend a lot of time in because it is incredibly well
realized and there’s so much going on in it i mean we only get a taste.
this film is also not only entertaining but very well structured from a dis
from for well for Disney from a business perspective I can see
I can easily see a sequel but also I can see an ongoing animated series
that’s so clearly set up to spin out of this I mean if this hits and I really hope
it does because it’s that good uh it deserves I think it has the potential to be
just as big as frozen it’s really really strong I loved it that’s all I can say
for now, because there are plenty of surprises in the movie but
I will be doing a spoiler review Raya hits theaters and Disney plus premiere
access this Friday and I can’t wait for all of you to see it so we can talk about it.
