Seeing and Believing 283 | Carlos Lopez Estrada and Don Hall’s Raya and the Last Dragon
Disney+ keeps the big releases rolling with Raya and the Last Dragon, an animated adventure about a fantasy world teetering on the edge of apocalypse, with magical dragons holding the key to saving humanity from encroaching outside evil … and also from itself. Featuring Kelly Marie Tran (The Last Jedi) and Awkwafina (The Farewell) as the two title characters, the film celebrates the virtue of trust; Wade and Kevin dig into it to see if the film is also worthy of celebration. Also, don’t miss the announcement of a new book giveaway: Chris Hayes and Cody Benjamin’s Why We Need the Movies, published just this year, takes a look at cinema culture in the era of streaming and COVID, and we’re offering the chance to win free copies for all Patreon subscribers!
