Disney just announced their next animated film about fantasy adventure with a Southeast Asian theme titled, Raya And The Last Dragon. What makes it even interesting is the animated Disney movie will have Malaysian screenwriter film and television producer, Adele Lim on board to write the movie!
The animated movie by Disney tells the tale of a “reimagined earth inhabited by an ancient civilisation” in a realm called Lumandra, where five clans form the land of the dragon and the main character Raya, is determined to find the last surviving dragon, Sisu.
The main character Raya, will be played by Cassie Steele and Awkwafina will play the water dragon Sisu.
She’s Crazy Rich Asians co-writer
Adele Lim was the one who co-wrote the blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians movie in Octobeer 2018. One year later, Adele Lim took to the stage at D23 together with producer Osnat Shurer who produced Moana to officially announce the latest Disney project, Raya and The Last Dragon.
“We’ve been keeping it under wraps for so long I think my family thought I was lying when I said I was working for a Disney feature animation!”
Adele Lim who was former SMK (P) Sri Aman graduate is now currently based in Los Angeles, US. She went to the US to continue her studies at the age of 19 as she believes that an American education would open more doors of opportunity and creativity for her.
The new Disney movie, Raya And The Last Dragon is tentatively set to hit cinemas in March 2021. We can’t wait to see the film made by our talented screenwriter Adele Lim!
