Raya passed her final test, and she is the next protector of the orb.  Five hundred years ago, dragons protected Kumandra from evil spirits.  But the Druun was too powerful, so the dragons put all their powers into one orb, and the last dragon, Sisu, fought the Druun and merged her spirit into the orb.  The people of Kumandra battled over the orb, and the fight led Kumandra to divide into factions: Heart, Talon, Spine, Tail, and Fang.  The Heart faction, which Raya and her father, Chief Benji, belong to, possess the orb.  Chief Benji invites the leaders of the other factions to Heart with the hope of becoming Kumandra again.  But they refuse because they believe the orb is the reason for Heart’s prosperity.  At the gathering, Raya meets Namaari, the daughter of Chieftess Virana of Fang.  Both girls love the tale of the dragons, and Namaari gives Raya a necklace of Sisu.  Enamored by this gift, Raya takes Namaari to the orb, but Namaari attempts to steal it.  When the other factions find out about Fang’s attempt for the orb, they all try to steal it.  The orb breaks, the Druun return, and each faction take a piece of the orb.  The Druun roll over the land like lava and turn the people into stone.  Benji realizes the Druun are afraid of water.  Before the Druun turns him into stone, Benji throws Raya off the bridge and into the water below.  All Raya can do is watch her father and her country become statues.  It’s been six years since the Druun returned, and Raya still searches for Sisu.  Raya wants to summon the last dragon and fight the Druun.  Of course, Raya isn’t the only person looking for Sisu; Namaari is too.  After performing a ritual, Raya wakens Sisu, and Sisu wants to see her brothers and sisters.  Raya tells Sisu that the Druun turned her fellow dragons into stone.  Sisu touches Raya’s piece of the orb and starts to glow with her sister’s power.  But Sisu is heartbroken looking at the remnants of the orb.  Sisu and Raya want to put the orb and Kumandra back together, but she and Raya will face old enemies along the way: greed and mistrust.

With a lesson needed in today’s society, Raya fits perfectly into the Disney franchise.  With elaborate settings and dazzling fight scenes, Raya and her flaws draw you into the plot.  But it’s Sisu that keeps you watching.  This lovable dragon gains the powers of her siblings while maintaining her caring and trusting nature.  Sisu understands that actual power doesn’t come from magic but trust.  Raya and the other factions must come together and trust each other to rebuild Kumandra.  With all this sentiment, the plot provides an abundance of laughs.  From a con baby to a little Forrest Gump, each character will connect (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  But one will be your favorite.  Whether you see it on the big screen or watch it on Disney+ Premier Access, you will be an instant fan.
