The latest addition to Disney proves to be an immense success. The story is a moving sentiment of letting go of the past and putting trust and faith into others. Though you come into this world alone, surrounding yourself with others that support you and want to help is the greatest gift life could ever give. The representation and diversity in the film is outstanding. The voice cast is stacked with stars of Asian descent; however, rather than a group full of Southeast Asian heritage, most of the actors are of East Asian ancestry except for a few. As a result, this has caused controversy and uproar over the film because not all Asians are the same — there are distinct attributes that differentiate each sub-culture from the other. Next time, Disney should put more thought into this during the process and production of their film. The writers of the film, Qui Nguyen and Adele Lim, are both of Southeast Asian culture. Nguyen is Vietnamese-American and Lim, who co-wrote the screenplay for Crazy Rich Asians, is Malaysian. To see such an inclusive environment exist outside the rem of the actors is revolutionary. https://medium.com/incluvie/raya-and-the-last-dragon-is-disney-s-latest-masterpiece-54b77127de48
