Raya and the Last Dragon
In the animated adventure movie Raya and the Last Dragon, a young girl help save her people from the plans of evil spirits. The movie was released by Disney during the pandemic winter of 2021. The prosperous land of Kumandra is ravaged by the Druun, evil spirits that attack and petrify the land's people and dragons. Sisu, the last dragon, concentrates her magic into a gem and banishes the Druun, reviving Kumandra's people but not the dragons. A power struggle for the orb divides Kumandra's people into tribes, based on their placement along a giant, dragon-shaped river: Fang, Heart, Spine, Talon, and Tail; with Heart securing the gem. 500 years later, Chief Benja of the Heart tribe trains his daughter, Raya, until she finally becomes a guardian of the gem. Firmly believing that the tribes can be united once again, Chief Benja decides to hold a feast for the leadership of all five tribes. During the feast, Raya befriends the daughter of Chief Virana of the Fang tribe, Namaari, who gives Raya a dragon pendant as a gift. Trusting her, Raya shows Namaari the location of the gem but Namaari, betraying Raya, reveals that she is trying to help Fang steal it. Alerted to the attack, Benja and the other tribes arrive at the scene and start fighting over the gem, which gets destroyed in the scuffle. As each tribe steals a piece of the orb, the reawakened Druun ravage Heart and its people. A wounded Chief Benja, discovering that the Druun are weak against water, thows Raya into a river before getting turned to stone himself.
