The newest animated feature from Disney will debut on the streaming service’s extra paid tier. Similar to the release of last year’s live-action Mulan, Disney+ subscribers will pay an extra $29.99 to watch Raya and the Last Dragon.
The film debuts on Premier Access March 5. It will simultaneously be released in theaters.
When Mulan dropped on Disney+ Premier Access, it was part of a wider release plan. After several months, the title moved over to the general Disney+ tier, so it could be watched by anyone with a Disney+ subscription.
Initial plans released by Disney today didn’t specify if Raya and the Last Dragon would follow the same pattern. (A Premier Access early release for an extra fee, and a “free” wide release at a later date.) However, it seems safe to assume the movie would end up on the general platform eventually. The only question for eager fans is… how long would the wait be?
To get fans hyped for the movie, Disney released a new trailer and poster for Raya and the Last Dragon. Check them out below.
Raya and the Last Dragon takes us on an exciting, epic journey to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s 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, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world. It’s going to take trust and teamwork as well.
