The year came to be when people would have laughed, cried, or fallen asleep in theaters with the head of a fellow sitting in the neighborhood. The passion for popcorn in my hands and cinema in my heart is slowly waking up again. At the same time, a new world of cinema stories is awakening, where the hero and the villain will no longer be there. Everyone will be human.
Would like to make everything bigger. Everyone would like to get it together. Everyone will have their own weaknesses and everyone will have their own strengths. And, everyone would like to be together as much as possible, instead of staying far away. Move along and grow together. You may find this Indian Sanatan Darshan in reading, but this is the story of Disney's new film Raya and the Last Dragon.
The story of the film Raya and the Last Dragon is the story of Kumandra, a fictional realm. The people of Kumandra were once happier with dragons. Then a disease spread in this area changed everything. The dragons saved humans by making their own sacrifices. But humans still did not come to respect their sacrifice. Now everyone lives differently. But there is still a ray of hope and Raya's courage. Moving forward with the undercurrent of trusting and letting the trust of others prevail over her, Raya's platoon in the film ultimately shows Ansabhava as possible. The story of the film 'Raya and the Last Dragon' is its real hero and for this, its writers have achieved full numbers.
The excitement of watching the film 'Raya and the Last Dragon' is not just among the children. The elders had also started their way from the time of its trailer. It is another matter that this time Disney's new film did not make the same chant, as has usually been the case in recent years. The film is fantastic and is a film worth watching in the theater with the whole family. This film is amazing because of the constant attention of Hollywood studios to the South Asian stories received in Hollywood, the artists and technicians of the region.
The real joy of an animation film lies in the voices it gives to its characters. The voices of the English version of the film elevate the graph of this film. Kelly Merry Tran may have returned with a voice, but seeing her again at Disney Camp indicates that in the coming days, some new shocking information may be revealed to her. His voice fits perfectly with Raya's character. The body found by the soul of Dragon Sisu is met with the sound of Sambal Aquafina, and it is difficult to imagine Tuk Tuk without the voice of Ellen Tudyk. Together these voices have doubled the joy of watching the film Raya and the Last Dragon.
The film 'Raya and the Last Dragon' is a technically advanced film. Whether it is Tuktuk's character appearing on screen for the first time in the opening scenes, Raya's climb up the water stairs while reaching the Spirit Stone, scenes of the desert, or Sisu's Itarana, inhalant, every scene Managed to move the audience into a different world of fantasy. The film's background is strong support for its story and the animation team has worked hard to humanize the characters. Especially the atmosphere around the characters, the lighting inside the scenes, and the camera placement around the characters have been done as if the film is made with real actors.
The film also shows references to the changed world after Corona. Mask on the face is now common. Destroying everything from the deadly disease, it seems that the matter of today's world is being spoken directly. The soul of the film seems to carry forward Disney's collaboration with Pixar'sSoul'. I consider 'Soul' to be the strongest contender for the Oscar award in the Best Animation Film category this year. It has been Disney's tradition to talk about the principles of life on the pretext of animation. 'Raya and the Last Dragon' is also a film to learn to walk together, live together, and learn to understand and preserve nature together, be sure to show it to your children.
