How to watch ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’

This year’s Oscars are still weeks away but it’s possible one of next year’s nominees is already out. The Disney animated film “Raya and the Last Dragon” is out now, and the well-reviewed feature — which combines elements of “Moana” and “Frozen” but without the songs — will likely stand as one of the top contenders for a Best Animated Feature nomination at the 2022 Oscars. This gives awards prognosticators plenty of time to check the film out before next year’s nominations are announced. Ahead, how to watch “Raya and the Last Dragon.”

Featuring the voices of Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, Daniel Dae Kim, Gemma Chan, and Sandra Oh, “Raya and the Last Dragon” is available as a premier access title on Disney+ for the cost of $29.99. For that price, Disney+ subscribers can watch the film multiple times and the title does not expire from their library. In addition to Disney+, “Raya and the Last Dragon” is out in theaters nationwide, although whether or not a venue in your area is open depends on the latest health and safety recommendations due to the coronavirus pandemic.
