Disney+ keeps the big releases rolling with Raya and the Last Dragon, an animated adventure about a fantasy world teetering on the edge of apocalypse, with magical dragons holding the key to saving humanity from encroaching outside evil ... and also from itself. Featuring Kelly Marie Tran (The Last Jedi) and Awkwafina (The Farewell) as the two title characters, the film celebrates the virtue of trust; Wade and Kevin dig into it to see if the film is also worthy of celebration. Also, don't miss the announcement of a new book giveaway: Chris Hayes and Cody Benjamin's Why We Need the Movies, published just this year, takes a look at cinema culture in the era of streaming and COVID, and we're offering the chance to win free copies for all Patreon subscribers!
