    “Raya and the Last Dragon” Movie Review

    Note: I paid $29.99 to Disney+ for special access to watch this movie, at home, before it becomes available to all Disney+ subscribers on June 4, 2021. Since our normal movie nights, according to Lori, cost over $30, I thought this was a good deal. I am so glad I did this as “Raya and […]

No music, no singing, and no magical funny dragon. Watch the movie with that in mind. That said, we all know the story of Mulan (Yifel Liu). […]
