‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ opens up in a week and here at MickeyBlog HQ we couldn’t be any more excited! That’s why we’re excited to share with you an interview that Kelly Marie Tran (who voices the title character in the film) recently gave at Good Morning America where she discuss what its like to fill the shoes of a modern-day Disney princess!
During the interview Tran said, “It feels like a crazy dream” when asked how it felt to be voicing the role of Disney’s FIRST Southeast Asian princess. “Oh my gosh, it is so special,” Tran said before adding, “It feels insane — it feels like a crazy dream. It’s wild to be part of this thing that is so much bigger than me — that has so much legacy behind it.”

The actress, who Disney fans already love from her work in the Star Wars films is making history as the first actress of Southeast Asian descent to lead a Disney animated movie. Tran told GMA that she is really grateful and excited to share Raya and the Last Dragon which debuts in cinemas (and on Disney+) on March5th.
She also admitted that due to COVID, she has to record most of her lines from home. She said that she had to tape sound blankets to the wall and that’s where the majority of the film was recorded.
