When Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon streams this month, it’s going to make history by featuring the storied studio’s first Southeast Asian princess lead character. That’s certainly something we can get behind, but the movie goes far beyond feel-good marketing tropes. It tells the truly uplifting and non-hokey story of a resilient, bold, and driven young princess who stops at nothing to save her people. As per the usual, the movie’s release is accompanied by an onslaught of Disney toys, and in this case, a lot of the merch actually doesn’t suck. The toys are engaging representations of Raya’s phantasmagoric world and the movie’s more grounded message: That only by working together and learning to trust others can we succeed in changing the world.
