0

Following the successful release of Mulan on Disney+ Premier Access, the Mouse House is following suit with Raya and the Last Dragon, a new animated film starring Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina. Set in the fantasy world of Kumandra, the new Disney movie tells the story of a young warrior who sets out to find the last remaining dragon and save the land from an ancient evil force.

Disney lovers will have to pay the Premier Access fee to watch Raya and the Last Dragon when it debuts in March, but fans won’t have to wait too long before the paywall is lifted for good. When will Raya and the Last Dragon be free on Disney+? Here’s everything you need to know!

RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON: DISNEY PLUS PREMIER ACCESS RELEASE DATE

In December 2020, Disney announced that new animated film Raya and the Last Dragon would premiere in select theaters and via Disney+ Premier Access on Friday, March 5. With a one-time purchase of $19.99 (on top of the monthly $6.99 Disney+ subscription fee), Disney+ subscribers will have permanent access to Raya and the Last Dragon, and they will be able to stream it as many times as they’d like.

Disney first experimented with Premier Access ahead of the release of Mulan, which was scheduled to debut in theaters in March 2020, but was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the company opted to release the live-action Mulan on Premier Access, an add-on option available to Disney+ subscribers.

WHEN WILL RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON BE FREE ON DISNEY PLUS?

If you’re not willing to pay $19.99 for Raya and the Last Dragon, you’ll have to wait a bit to catch the film for free on Disney+. Disney has not yet announced when the animated film will be streaming for free on Disney+, but the Mulan release offers a few hints about Raya and the Last DragonMulan first debuted on Premier Access on September 4 and hit Disney+ for free exactly three months later, on December 4. If this pattern holds, Raya and the Last Dragon will be available to stream for free on Disney+ on or around June 5, 2021.

However, there is one important thing to note. Raya and the Last Dragon is currently scheduled for a digital, DVD, and Blu-ray release on June 15, and typically, this date occurs before a film heads to Disney+ proper. This means that Raya and the Last Dragon may not be available until after June 15, a divergence from the Mulan model. Either way, don’t expect to see Raya and the Last Dragon on Disney+ until June at the earliest!
