Reminder: Raya and the Last Dragon debuts on Disney+ tomorrow

Tomorrow, Disney+ will begin offering its latest movie Raya and the Last Dragon on the streaming service. As with previous major Disney+ releases like Mulan, you’ll need to spend an extra $30 on top of your usual subscription fee to watch the film. That’s because it’s part of the service’s Premier Access which offers viewers a chance to see movies they’d normally only be able to see at movie theaters. Don’t want to spend the extra $30? Wait until June 4 and you can watch it for free as part of your regular Disney+ subscription. Of course, that is three months away. Read on as we explain all about the new movie and what else is new on Disney+.

Raya and the Last Dragon is Disney’s 59th movie. Featuring a predominantly Asian American cast, the movie tells the tale of the world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons live together in harmony. That harmony is broken when sinister monsters known as the Druun threaten the safety of the land and the dragons sacrifice themselves to save humanity. Fast forward 500 years, and the evil Druun have returned and it’s down to one lone warrior — Raya — and her pet pill bug companion Tuk Tuk to find the last dragon of Kumandra in a bid to save everyone.

In typical Disney style, there’s a fantastic soundtrack along with Disney’s first-ever Filipino-language song titled Gabay. A brilliant voice cast including Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Kelly Marie Tran, and Awkwafina bring further life to the story.

And of course, it’s yet another example of just how fantastic a service Disney+ is. Disney+ offers access to almost all of Disney’s past movies along with fantastic Disney shorts, and so much more from the company’s extensive portfolio. Whether you want to catch up on classics like Toy Story or enjoy all that Marvel and Star Wars have to offer (including smash hits like The Mandalorian and Wandavision), it’s all here on Disney+.

Fast becoming your next essential streaming service to always have available to you, Raya and the Last Dragon should cement that even further. Right now, you can choose to pay $30 to watch the latest movie or wait it out until June 4. Whatever you decide, you still have plenty of other great shows and movies to catch up on via Disney+.

5 questions we have after The Last of Us episode 7
Ellie reads a book to Riley in The Last of Us Episode 7.

The Last of Us episode 7 catches up with Ellie (Bella Ramsey) as she tries to take care of a dangerously injured Joel (Pedro Pascal). When the episode, titled Left Behind, begins, Ellie and Joel have hunkered down in the basement of an abandoned house. Joel isn’t nearly as concerned for himself as he is for Ellie, though. He orders her to leave him behind and travel back to the Wyoming compound his brother, Tommy (Gabriel Luna), now calls home.

Moments later, Left Behind cuts back to months earlier, when Ellie was still a FEDRA trainee in Boston. The flashback episode then follows Ellie and her best friend, Riley (Storm Reid), as they share an unforgettable night in an abandoned Boston mall. In the episode’s closing moments, viewers witness the infected attack that not only brought Ellie and Riley’s night to a tragic end, but also resulted in Ellie discovering her immunity to The Last of Us’ fictional Cordyceps virus.
