It’s Friday and time to take a look at what arrived on Disney+ this week in Canada. There are two big new releases today including the finale of the first-ever Marvel Studios series “WandaVision” plus “Raya and the Last Dragon” arrives on Disney+ Premier Access. There is also a brand new “Star Original” Love in the Time of Corona.
Here is the full rundown:
Marvel’s WandaVision – Finale
Marvel Studios presents “WandaVision,” a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) – two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The new series is directed by Matt Shakman; Jac Schaeffer is head writer.
Raya And The Last Dragon (Premier Access)
We travel to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well. Raya and the Last Dragon features the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya, a warrior whose wit is as sharp as her blade, and Awkwafina as magical, mythical, self-deprecating dragon named Sisu. The feature film is directed by Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada and produced by Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho.
Raya and the Last Dragon will be priced at $34.99 on Disney+ Premier Access. It will also be available in theatres.
