Raya And The Last Dragon Is More About The Action Than Its Princess
As a former Disney Princess obsessive, I never miss a new inductee to Disney. As much as I see characters like Aladdin’s Jasmine or Sleeping Beauty’s Aurora differently as an adult, they stand as important figures in my childhood at a time when female-driven stories were not as big of a deal as they most certainly are now in Hollywood. These days, my all-time favorite princess is Moana because she redefined the formula while also implementing it. Like every great Disney Princess, Moana has big dreams and flaws, but following an epic journey, she finds her power and learns a universal lesson we can all grab on in our own ways.
