Disney’s latest is a fast-paced and fun fantasy with heists, rescues, escapes and, of course, dragons.

This stunningly animated feature follows Raya (Kelly Marie Tran), a warrior from Kumandra, a realm of warring nations divided by mistrust. When the bickering tribes break a magical orb and unleash an evil power that turns people to stone, Raya begins an epic quest to find the last dragon, reunite the missing pieces and right the wrongs of the past. However, along her journey, she'll learn that it'll take more than dragon magic to save the world - it's going to take trust as well.

As an overall throwback, and as a return to the streamlined storytelling upon which Disney built its supremacy, Raya and the Last Dragon is a welcome expansion of the Disney universe.
