Raya And The Last Dragon Watching Blog

Released date March 5,2021

Duration: 1 hr 53 min

Watched with my partner and his sister πŸ€— Helps to watch with him there πŸ˜‰ In case I have questions πŸ˜‹

I really wanted to test out my new and improved book review template, so I made it work πŸ˜‚ Changed/omitted some fields: changed trigger warnings to content warnings, changed read to watched, omitted POV, and omitted movie/show rec (since it is a movie already) πŸ˜‚ Just moved fields around! See my review! πŸ™πŸΎ

General consensus was WE liked the movie 🍿 The animation was gorgeous and the Southeast Asian influence turned it into a fun guessing game of β€œWhich country?” πŸ˜‚

Took some notes πŸ“ : DO NOT read if you haven’t seen the movie! You’ve been warned πŸ˜‚
