Raya and The Last Dragon is set to be released on March 5th.

The newest movie to enter the Disney-Princess franchise, “Raya and the Last Dragon.”
The story follows a girl named Raya as she searches for the last dragon to bring the world back into balance.

Kelly Marie Tran, who voices Raya, says to “Entertainment Weekly”,”She is someone who is technically a princess, but I think that what’s really cool about this project, about this character specifically, is that everyone’s trying to flip the narrative on what it means to be a princess,” Tran said. “Raya is totally a warrior. When she was a kid, she was excited to get her sword. And she grows up to be a really badass, gritty warrior and can really take care of herself.”

“I just cried and laughed through the whole thing,” Tran said to “Entertainment Weekly.” “I didn’t know that I was yearning just to see someone who looks like me.” Raya will be the first Southeast Asian princess to have her own Disney-Princess movie.
