`Love is the greatest power in world and we can conquer everything with love.’ The most familiar words we are getting used to with since our childhood, of course Disney has the major impact on this belief. Here, I am not to criticize those words, because to prevail the peace and stability around the world, love is very much needed but ignored everywhere.
charming princess have waited long for her desire to get true love or they realized only love is the utmost solution of their grave misery, the picture that Disney has been screening to us all the years. Elsa found love as an only power saving her sister, Snow white was awakened by or with the touch of love, The Beast transformed to human with the power of love and so on. Most of the Disney movies grew up on exhibiting the power of love. This year, Disney just switch their direction from ‘Love’ to ‘Trust’. The fundamental base of unity. Trust is like a glue that sticks people, regions and everything in a piece. And we learn that trust is another power to conquer peace and harmony. And all of this message came from another Disney movie ‘Raya and the last dragon’.
Raya, the girl living in a realm named Kumandra, was searching for the last dragon to get back his father alive. She is the first south-eastern princess in Disney world. Based on the Chinese fable, Raya and the last dragon will definitely win your heart. As the corona clawed on world economy as well as film industries too, this Disney movie couldn’t get more appealing graphics comparing to its previous movies. Peoples are criticizing that the director took more from the Avatar: the last air bender, but the scriptwriter claimed to be inspired from Guardian of the Galaxy. This newcomer couldn’t shake the box office off that the live action movie Mulan did.
Apart from all the pros and cons, Raya and the last dragon is one of the biggest breakthrough for Disney. Because this time they released it in their own streaming site due to pandemic and also available in theatre.
In my view, I have been always fascinated to the fables but not the dragons. I have no exact explanation, why this creature did not attract me all these years. This movie made me rethink about dragons, maybe they displayed them as cute and friendly. The armadillo, glued to Raya all the time and helped her in its own way. The betrayal from the other princess may hurt you, but it explains the reality a lot. I was just thinking that, yes this is actually happened in our world too, but we don’t have dragons or any prophecy to solve all of our problems (sigh). With all the limitations, the makers detailed out the Chinese landscape to offer the experience of tangible feelings. The crying for water reveals the scarcity in that region. After finishing the movie you’ll live in awe for a while.
