Raya and the Last Dragon

Emma Becraft, Entertainment Editor

Raya and the Last Dragon is the most recent Disney movie following a Disney princess-like arc. It takes an approach similar to Moana in the beginning with a girl on an isolated journey to find someone. Raya is looking for the last dragon in existence in hopes of bringing back the majority of the population that was turned to stone due to black orb-like creatures called Druuns.

The movie presents no obvious love story but it does follow Raya and her coping with being betrayed by a childhood friend which led the world into a downward spiral. The plotline follows a moral of truth and trust and the need for other people’s help to add to your own strength.

The movie is rated 7.5/10 on IMDB and even though it is a children’s movie it subtly addresses modern-day problems.
