The Mighty Dragon meets Jona Xiao

Disney+ Raya and the Last Dragon

Did someone say Dragon?

I’m super lucky to have actress Jona Xiao on The Mighty Dragon podcast. In this episode we talk about her latest movie, Raya and the Last Dragon.

Starring a stellar cast including Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, Daniel Dae Kim, Benedict Wong, Sandra Oh and, of course, Jona Xiao. This delightful tale is the latest animated Disney Princess film and sees Jona as the Young Namaari.

After speaking with Jona, I can see how perfect she is for this role. A real-life heroine, determined and resilient against adversity. Personally I found her a very empowering and totally not surprised that her company, Career ACTivate, has helped thousands of actors book more work and land great reps. Way to go!

Disney+ Raya and the Last Dragon

We are taken to the fantasy world of Kumandra where humans live peacefully with dragons. Nevertheless, whenever anything is going that well, you know something will turn up to disturb the harmony.

This time it’s in the form of sinister monsters called Druun. We see the friendly Dragons sacrifice themselves to save their human allies. However, years later, the old monsters return and Namaari seeks to find help from the Last Dragon.

Catch the official Raya and the Last Dragon trailer on Disney’s YouTube channel.
