A few weeks ago, controversy over Raya and the Last Dragon broke out in Asia, and some called for the film to be boycotted. Another hit for the next Disney cartoon today.
Bad news for cinema lovers
With cinemas closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, 2020 has been a very difficult year for distributors and that’s not improving in 2021 right now. Since last year, Disney has had to revise its theatrical release calendar several times and has even decided to release certain films directly on its Disney + platform. This way, viewers could discover Mulan and Soul without going through the box. History repeats itself today for the company’s next animated feature.
Raya and the Last Dragon were originally scheduled to hit theaters on November 20, 2020. Unfortunately, the closure of theaters around the world has forced Disney to reschedule the date to March 12, 2021. Theaters are not yet open at the beginning of The Year, Disney made a new decision by offering the film on VOD on Disney + in certain countries from March 5, 2021. A theatrical release in France was always expected, but Disney + France has just fulfilled our last hopes of seeing the film in theaters. The platform announced the news on his Twitter account.
