#raya and the last dragon

i feel like the last two disney movies (raya and the last dragon and encanto) should’ve been made as short animated series instead of 1 hour and 50-ish minute movies. that would’ve given them so much more time for greater world building/explanation of lore and characterization of their larger supporting cast. raya and the last dragon especially felt like it was meant to be in a serialized format with the nature of the four quests to find the pieces of the dragon gem and meeting new characters at each stop with namaari in hot pursuit. i might elaborate on how i would break it up into episodes and what could be elaborated on with more time in a reblog. as for encanto, a series would’ve allowed for more time to explain how the magic of the casita worked and why/how mirabel didn’t get a gift. they would also be able to show over time how strained all of the family members felt by the expectations of their powers from abuela rather than directly telling us through song. i did like surface pressure and what can i do as songs but it felt like these huge revelations were told to mirabel very suddenly without a lot of build up that we were able to see. i also would’ve liked to be able to get to know all of the family members, especially dolores and camilo. overall both movies had super interesting and compelling characters, stories, and themes but they were too complex to adequately and satisfyingly tackle in just 1 hour and 50 minutes (especially encanto).

I like thinking about how the Fang soldiers felt during the Spine fight:
Raya: you’re nothing without your band!
Namaari, already grabbing her sword: stand down. This won’t take long
*they literally start smiling and checking each other out*
Fang soldier 1: there’s no way. There’s no way her dumb ass actually took the bait
General Atitaya: ah, but that’s the thing! She totally did
Fang soldier 2, watching them carefully: I don’t know you guys, something about this fight seems a tad sexual
Raya, after literally getting thrown to the ground: I see someone’s been taking classes
Fang soldier 3: oh yeah there’s no way that comment had no implications
Namaari: *literally licks her lips after she gets punched in the face*
Fang soldier 4:……Princess Namaari is so into this right now, isn’t she?
General Atitaya: oh she’s having the time of her life
Namaari: *picks up Raya by the shirt and just stares into her eyes for several seconds*
Fang soldier 1: I just feel like I’m interrupting something-
*Sisu shows up and Raya escapes*
Fang soldier 2:….so we all agree that entire fight was just Raya and Namaari wanting to do each other right?
*mumbles of agreement*

can’t believe this is an unpopular opinion, but Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) was amazing. A lot of people liked the movie and the history/heritage behind it but not the message of the movie. and while i 100% adore and appreciate the heritage, the message was what made me love the movie.
people think that the message is wrong to say we should trust those who are untrustworthy or who have given us reasons not to trust them, that Namaari and Fang didn’t deserve forgiveness or trust in the movie.
but that’s exactly the point- it’s not about deserve. Raya and the Last Dragon is 100% a reflection not only of Southeast Asian culture, but of our world today. especially in regard to politics, we don’t trust each other, we don’t work together, and we let fear divide us. In the movie, Raya realizes that while Nemaari may not be the most trustworthy person, someone has to take the first step in working together to fix the world. and that’s so important.
today, it’s so much easier for us to say that we shouldn’t have to take responsibility for a problem just because we didn’t start it. it’s easy to point fingers instead of join hands. but that’s not the way to improve things. sometimes you have to trust and come together not because the other person deserves it, but because the world does.
and that’s exactly the message Raya and the Last Dragon conveys- not necessarily trusting blindly, but trusting others because WE ourselves are trustworthy, and it’s the only way to truly grow.

some headcanon: sometimes when they hug, Raya would run her fingers over the shaved part of Namaari's undercut and Namaari would feel the end of Raya's braid on her fingers

Namaari:Do you mean, "ambidextrous"?
Raya: I love you.

Mulan: Do you know how to use a sword?
Raya: Of course I do. What's hard to understand about swish-swish-stab?
Mulan: Actually, there are techniques-
Raya: It's a fucking sword, dude. Not a fighter jet.

Disney’s ‘experiment.’
Please don’t pay the extra 30 dollars to watch Raya and the Last Dragon on top of the subscription fee you are already paying. Do not normalize this. There is no reason you should pay that much to watch a movie in your own home, a few months earlier than everyone else. If you buy into this, they will keep doing it. They are calling it an experiment for a reason.

Namaari, sighing tiredly: was it really necessary for me to be born?
Raya, shrugging: probably not, honestly. But I don’t think it was necessary to make cookies, either. Yet I can’t imagine living in a world without them!
Namaari, blushing brightly: Raya, I have a reputation!

Listen I love joking about that last fight between Raya and Namaari like everyone else but dude.
They were about to fight to the death! Raya sought out Namaari to kill her and she ignored everyone person in front of her to do it.
Namaari was standing in front of her mother, who turned to stone because she trusted her daughter to do what needed to be done. Which not only could Namaari not do, she was partly responsible for Sisu's death which is what caused Fang to fall apart.
Raya was going to kill her because of Sisu and even though Namaari was fighting back as soon as it seemed like Raya had won Namaari was going to let her.
