Looking forward to new adventures in the Year of the Ox

Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together 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.

But until the movie – which stars an almost all-Asian cast including Awkwafina, Kelly Marie Tran, Gemma Chan, Sandra Oh, Daniel Dae Kim and Ross Butler – is released, we shall just have to imagine what adventures Raya will go on.

Oh, and enjoy this Lunar New Year greeting from some of its stars.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy Year of the Ox!
