Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together 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. This Walt Disney Animation Studios animated film features the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as the last dragon Sisu.

 Tensions and temperatures rise over the course of an afternoon recording session in 1927 Chicago as a band of musicians await trailblazing performer, the legendary “Mother of the Blues,” Ma Rainey. Late to the session, the fearless, fiery Ma engages in a battle of wills with her white manager and producer over control of her music. As the band waits in the studio’s claustrophobic rehearsal room, ambitious cornet player Levee— who has an eye for Ma’s girlfriend and is determined to stake his own claim on the music industry— spurs his fellow musicians into an eruption of stories revealing truths that will forever change the course of their lives.
 
Branford Marsalis’ score punctuates this film that celebrates the transformative power of the blues and the artists who refuse to let society’s prejudices dictate their worth. Adapted from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s play, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom features best actress/ actor award winning performances by Viola Davis as Ma Rainey and Chadwick Boseman.
 
Runtime is 94 minutes • This Biographic music film is Rated R for language, some sexual content and brief violence •
