‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Arrives on Digital April 2

Disney’s animated epic adventure features the voice talents of Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina; the Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD release, available May 18, includes never-before-seen bonus footage and deleted scenes.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ adventure Raya and the Last Dragon arrives on all major digital platforms beginning April 2, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD beginning May 18. Viewers will enjoy never-before-seen bonus footage and deleted scenes in Ultra HD quality and Dolby Audio.

Raya and the Last Dragon takes audiences on an exciting journey to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons long ago lived together in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. 500 years later, the same evil has returned, and it is up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people.

However, along her journey, Raya will learn that it will take more than a dragon to save the world - it is going to take trust and teamwork as well. Raya travels through the five lands of Kumandra that form the shape of a dragon: Heart, Raya’s home, a prosperous land filled with peace and magic; Fang, a powerful, thriving land surrounded by water; Spine, an insular and remote land whose people distrust outsiders; Talon, the crossroads of the five lands and a bustling marketplace; and Tail, a far-flung, desert land that is becoming more isolated as water recedes.

Directed by Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada, co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, producers Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho, the film features the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as Sisu.
