So I'm going to rant...just a little. I am Asian, proudly so. I work a full-time job in the medical field. I'm a wife, a mother, a daughter, a granddaughter and so much more. More importantly, my full-time job helps others. I get there are varying opinions out there, I get that there's a bunch of propaganda out there. However, is it that hard to treat others with kindness and respect? #StopAsianHate -It's quite simple. I watch those videos of random people attacking innocent and random Asians going about their day and it breaks my heart. It could be my mother, my grandmother. My parents are active in their church helping others and also work in the medical field, helping others. Open your hearts, people are more than what they appear by outer appearances. That is why, it is with absolute joy and happiness that I share that Disney finally has an Asian princess heroine in Raya and the Last Dragon. It's about freaking time! I absolutely LOVE Disney but have always complained about the lack of good Asian roles in Disney and Hollywood in general. Raya and the Last Dragon arrives on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD beginning May 18 and brings a beautiful message.

Synopsis:
Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. But when sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the last dragon in order to finally stop the Druun for good. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than dragon magic to save the world—it’s going to take trust as well. From directors Don Hall and Carlos L√≥pez Estrada, co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, producers Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho, the film features the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as Sisu.

Raya and the Last Dragon is such a fun movie. I adored the film as did my preschooler, who actually take the DVD case from me every chance he gets. I loved how it took everyone coming together to save the world. It's such a random team combination and it teaches you that regardless of age, sex, type of person -we all count and matter. Together, we are stronger and are a part of something bigger. My favorite character was definitely the "naughty" yet resourceful baby and her monkeys. Ha! Don't underestiamte her just because she's cute and little! Overall, the movie was entertaining and refreshing but also sends a beautiful message. Definitely a keeper in our movie library!
