Reading About Raya and the Last Dragon
We learned a little more about the film from The Hollywood Reporter’s :
Producer Osnat Schurer (an Oscar nominee for Moana) spoke about the upcoming film on Tuesday, in a featured conversation during this week’s virtual VIEW visual effects and animation confab.
She related that while the story is set in a fantasy world, it was heavily inspired by Southeast Asia. The filmmakers took research trips to countries including Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines. Schurer added that they also tried martial arts and gamelan instruments as part of their creative process.
The producer shared that the movie was just entering production earlier this year when the Covid-19 outbreak was starting, therefore the crew of more than 300 have been working remotely. Voice recording also required a remote process.
“This world has changed,” says Raya, the warrior heroine voiced by Kelly Marie Tran, “and its people are divided. Now to restore peace I must find the last dragon.” And for a final trailer image that should speak to today’s audiences, Raya pulls down the sand mask that’s been covering her mouth as the voice-over declares her name.
