A new trailer and poster has been released for upcoming movie Raya And The Last Dragon which can seen in full below.
Starring among others Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina the movie is directed by Don Hall/Carlos Lopez Estrada and it has a release date of 5th March 2021.
The new trailer introduces the 'con-baby' who is adorable and kick-ass and is bound to become a fan favourite as she joins forces with Raya, and we get our first real introduction of the dragon who seems to have confidence issues.
On March 5, join Raya on her quest to find the last dragon. See Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon in theaters or order it on @DisneyPlus with Premier Access on March 5. Learn more: https://t.co/VbE7d6KNRP pic.twitter.com/54wfglZWMQ— Raya and the Last Dragon (@DisneyRaya) January 26, 2021
The poster is typical Disney fare and has the Dragon dominant with Raya taking more of a back seat this time but has her sword ready for action, we also get to see the mysterious circular stone in the background with the sun blazing through.
The movie will be released in cinemas across the world and on Disney+ Premium Access which will require an additional fee, Mulan was an extra £30 ($30) on top of the monthly fee, something HBO Max is not doing with their direct to VOD movies like Wonder Woman 1984.
In a fantasy land called Kumandra, split into five different regions, a warrior named Raya searches for the last dragon in the world.

The UK box office figures are back on hold again as the UK experiences another lockdown and cinemas across England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales close.
Two cinemas remained open Broadway and Palace on the Isle Of man and The Mallard Cinema in the Channel Islands, both run under different rules.
These cinemas showed the latest hit movies including Wonder Woman 1984 as well as older hits like 1917.
The lockdown is due to end on 15th February but the UK government has said it could go on longer.
With a COVOD-19 vaccine rapidly starting to be administered across the country it is hoped that this could be the last lockdown and then perhaps the UK box office can start to return to normal.
