Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon is out on digital now!
That’s right, and it will be on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, and DVD beginning May 18. Originally releasing on Disney+ with premier access my daughter is so excited to now be able to watch Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon on digital whenever she wants. It is one of her favorite movies of the year so far, and she is absolutely in love with Raya. (You can read my full review of the movie HERE, and you can grab some Raya and the Last Dragon Activity Sheets HERE.) We sat down together today, watched the movie, and then she and I watched the bonus features together.

Raya and the Last Dragon Film Synopsis
Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. But when sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the last dragon in order to finally stop the Druun for good. 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. From directors Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada, co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, producers Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho, and featuring the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as Sisu.
