      Herm... I don't know, but I don't think you're a miniority. I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw it, but it sure wasn't THAT I can at least say that much. I was expecting something... less dark maybe?

      Literally just finished watching the movie, its really good. I like the ideas expressed in the movie (Unity, Forgiveness, Self destruction), the Mixed- Asian culture, the characters while quirky (Like Noi, the baby), and THE FACT NO ONE IS SINGING IN THE MOVIE. *sigh* Its a good watch, I would recommend it. I just wish it had a little bit more action

    Probably a nitpick but I felt like Raya kept throwing her hat just about every time she fought Namaari and idk the trailer made it look like it would be super dramatic but bc it happens every 20 minutes it felt watered down to me.

    I agree. This premise is really interesting but it's leaving out so much because it's in a movie format. If this were a series instead, it could potentially be on the level of last airbender or something

    The Moana movie was NOT relatable or good even- She has an entire identity crisis because her dad wanted to protect her. It wasn't like Ariel where she wanted to see a different world and her father was conflicted with the death of Ariels mom. There were parts of Moana that could've been avoided or it was just wasted screentime. There are very few characters and the plot is based on returning an item. No conflict where it would affect OTHER islands or FREEZE HER FAMILY, like something more drastic. The dad was afraid of water while Ariels dad was worried about actual danger to their kind and his daughter. Moana is wondering who she is just for spite. And the whole Hans similar situation was dumb and lazy. Evil has to be evil or at least for a good reason and done well, it can be crucial to a story instead of just "Oh you're good now. Cool"

    Nothing real lands right with this movie, the whole story about trust but ever time they tried to push that point that trust was betrayed, they also just doubled down on the stereotypes from the beginning of the movie instead of subverting our expectations how have Raya learn they her out look is to narrow, nope the people from there respective lands play straight to the types Raya lade out in the beginning. It felt like this could have been so much more. But nothing really lands and the half hearted dues ex machina feels hollow.

    The movie's strongest half by far was it's first half and all of it's strong moments are when Raya s the main focus of the scene or when Raya and Nemaari are on screen together. After Sisu joins it tanks HARD. The movie spends the first half emphasizing how important of a role the dragons played in their society, but Sisu's existence doesn't offer anything outside of guilt tripping Raya for her trust issues (Which by the way is COMEPLETLY Justified???) and making corny jokes/references. Also the powers that she got from her siblings were an absolute joke. No wonder they all got turned to stone. Like seriously, Glowing, Fog, Shapeshift but only into a human, Walk on water, and Swim good. like ????????

    My biggest problem is that Namaari never showed any remorse at all. Never apologized to Raya or realized her own mistakes, instead she blames Raya and we're supposed to accept her as redeemed. You have to earn redemption, not have someone else just suddenly decide to trust you one more time out of nowhere after you screwed up two times before and never once feeling bad for it.

    Yeah, it totally felt like a super-rushed Avatar knock-off. I legit couldn't remember the rival girl's name and kept calling her zuko girl. Not that the visuals weren't pretty, just that everything wasn't as fleshed out because we only got to see it for a teeny bit, and introduce a lot of characters quickly. Plus the movie starts with a load of exposition (even though it has accompanying visuals) and that much lore that can't be condensed down right off the bat is a bad sign when we're about to watch a standalone film. I think the reason the dragon seems like Genie is that she's replicating that casual modern speech/immersion breaking thing that genie does. Only it's way more wishy-washy in Raya than Aladdin.

    100% agree with, like, all of this. Disney has been lacking lately. Lacking is the perfect word to describe this movie. And YES it would be an exciting tv show, they’ve got plenty of content. It was a gorgeously animated movie, and I think the southeast Asian culture was an exciting choice and there was a lot of potential for an amazing story. But they built up all this amazing stuff, and then just kind of plateaued and played it safe. Formulaic was mentioned- yeah, i agree. I think my favorite part of this movie was Raya’s sword.

    I think exactly the same. What I like the less is how Nemeri proved once and again that she wasn't deserving the trust, but the movie keeps insisting that the good thing to do is trusting in her anyway. It felt stupid, wtf. I have the idea trust should be earned. Trusting people that betrayed you once or twice, it's madness. That and the baby character. I hate babies acting like adults. It makes no sense and it feels like a very low way to get our attention because "look how cute it is!". And the modern pop language they use. They use the word "nerd", I think. I mean, wtf. It breaks the fantasy. Those are pretty modern words at least in that context. And the entire culture feels fake, like western pretending to be other thing. What I mean is... it felt very strong like a product. I had the same feeling, THE EXACT SAME FEELING with Ralph 2, Frozen 2 and the incredibles 2. Products without soul. And in some moments, I felt the same with Soul from Pixar, but Soul felt less rush too. With more heart.

    I watched this a while back, assuming I wouldn’t really be watching Raya. Tonight, I get to see it in a local (Covid protections enforced) theater. So I watch this again. I’m never all that concerned about spoilers. What this does, though, is give me a sense of this complex plot ahead of the movie. Maybe that’ll help for a first viewing? We shall see!

    Talk about the dragon, the design is obviously inspired from naga in SEA legend. Anyway, even me, a person grown up in SEA culture, they look weird to me. I watch this movie with my friends, grown up in the same culture, we totally agree that WE HATE THE DRAGON DESIGN!!, especially when there were a big group of them fly together. They kinda like my little pony but they are my little flying earthworm. Im waiting for people from my country see this comment and told me I disrespect to the culture and should be executed or sth lolol

    Personally, I think this movie lacked several key elements: 1) appart from Raya's father only women were shown as "strong" characters. There were no strong/intelligent men (her friends are either strong but dumb or just a child/baby) 2) The rivalry between Raya and her friend makes little sense. The story doesn't really reveal why her friend decided to betray her (was she pressured by her mom, did she plan on it for a while, did she envy or hate Raya for some reason...?) 3) The message of this movie is kind of unclear. It is about friendship, about hope or about trust? 4) From a logical point of view it makes no sense that Raya would suddendly trust her friend who has betrayed her numerous times. I mean... would you really trust someone who backstabbed you more than once? No. You could forgive, but the broken trust would have to be earned back. That's how trust works in reality. 5) Many characters lacked a solid character development. There were no songs in the movie who explained the thoughts and motives of the characters. So the felt kind of superficial and bland. 6.) I was very disappointed in Susu, because she was basically just a clueless idiot. In most legends dragons are associated with wisedom, knowledge and power. Susu is quite the opposite of that which was quite a disappointment. The only two positive aspects of this movie are the stunning visuals and the unique story. But the movie didn't have a clear message and it left me feel entertained, but disappointed... What do you guys think?

As someone who loves art and animation i really enjoyed the enviroments and expressions by Sisu. It looked good. The whole trust thing that Sisu wanted felt a bit wrong and weird because i feel like if You’re in that world you should be ready to kill. I kinda wish there would be animated movies that were for adults but with action and fantasy and stuff. I just want some real death and misery to happen instead of everything getting solved with friendship and trust.

I did feel something when the heroes were sacrificing themselves for the stone, but It could've been so much more indeed. The movie is pretty, but so r most of the other disney films that came b4 it.

    The part where namarri (or whatever her name is) shot the dragon with a crossbow was because when namarri was aiming the crossbow at the dragon she didn't know what to do, Raya didn't trust namarri and thought she would shoot the dragon so she ran up to her and tried to bump the crossbow away or aim it at the ground but that didn't go as planned and namarri accidentally shot the crossbow and hit the dragon. Why? because she was 1, Startled by the sudden attack and 2, was panicking while she was cornered at the edge of a cliff. That's why she blamed the dragons short death on Raya. (If you disagree with what I said that's fine just please don't come at me this is what I saw happen in the movie, idk if others did. This would also make more sense then just namarri shooting the dragon and blaming it on Raya).

    This movie was GARBAGE 🙃 And I was really looking forward to it so it was terrible the movie just zoomed right through the plot, no attachment to any of these characters, terrible humor, a boss baby, a my little pony character, very predictable... It just felt like a money grabber disney shoved out tbh. The scenes were beautiful, the music was lovely and I'm happy there was no singing for once but I wouldn't watch it again :/
