In a world named Kumandra where dragons used to roam in utopian paradise, things have gone more than wrong. Now, Kumandra is divided into five kingdoms: Heart, Fang, Spine, Talon, and Tail. At first glance, Raya and the Last Dragon deals with themes we have seen before, but the journey still never fails to be surprising and immersive. Raya (Kelly Marie Tran) and her dad are committed to protecting a dragon gem that protects humanity from the evil Druun, a mindless plague that turns everything into stone. After Raya’s dad invites the four neighboring kingdoms to proclaim peace, Raya befriends Naamari (Gemma Chan). She quickly tries to steal the stone, creating chaos and unleashing the Druun in the process. Each kingdom runs away with a piece of the broken gem, Raya’s dad is sadly turned into stone, and Raya jumps into the river with her cute armadillo sidekick Tuk Tuk.
