‘Crazy Rich Asians’ screenwriter on penning ‘Raya And The Last Dragon’

Screenwriter-producer Adele Lim shot to global fame writing ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ in 2018 and is back penning the story of Disney’s new CGI fantasy adventure, Raya And The Last Dragon. She says the makers wanted her to anchor the story in love, given the fantastical tone of her latest effort.

“The tone we wanted to lead with was one of love for our world, our family and joy. With a project like this that is so fantastical, we wanted to find emotional anchors for our character and her journey, grounded in something true and relatable,” said Lim.

The animated film tells the tale of the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons once lived in harmony. When an evil force threatens the land, the dragons sacrifice themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, the same evil returns and it is up to lone warrior Raya to find the legendary last dragon and restore the fractured land and its divided people.

The film will release in theaters across India on March 5.
