I'm just very happy someone else is finally saying that "trust everyone blindly" was never the message of the movie.

Raya trusted Namaari and, Namaari betrayed that trust. Raya trusted Sisu until Namaari tightened on the trigger which ended up with Sisu's death. Namaari did absolutely NOTHING to earn ANYONE'S trust throughout the entire movie. Her taking the first step and, earning Raya's trust over time is a much better, and competent way to handle it. And, given Sisu DOES trust everyone blindly and, Raya doesn't trust anyone, (very reasonably so given the events that broke her world only happened six years ago) The message is botched beyond reason.

@Just a random Asian lol, not to say your argument is invalid or anything I just needed someone to tag, but seeing people argue over the message of a kids movies is pretty fun to watch 😂 like I never knew people could get so deep over an angsty girl with trust issues and her magical dragon friend with literally zero trust issues
Just a random Asian
@whitewolf1310 dude, what is wrong with you? Raya should have no fault at all, she trusted Namaari when she was younger and that’s how the whole entire world got ruined, don’t think you can really blame her for not trusting anyone. Her losing trust in Naamari was not what killed Sisu, Naamari pointing a literal crossbow at Sisu and tightening her fingers around the trigger is what did, you really think that Raya had just as much fault as Naamari for trying to save her friend from getting shot with a crossbow? She didn’t even need to trust Naamari in the first place, because Naamari already broke her trust, you want her to trust someone who betrayed her and ruined the entire world because of that betrayal while that person is pointing a crossbow at her friend? You want her to be able to trust anyone and everyone no matter what that person did? That is flawed philosophy, Naamari honestly never should’ve been forgiven, I don’t know why you’re trying to defend her or this movie so hard but the message is honestly disgusting, seeing Naamari blame Raya after killing her friend was classic narcissist behaviour, absolutely revolting.

I think Raya’s “doom walk” is one of the cinematic highlights of the movie for me. Especially the part where she splits a Druun *without even slowing down*, complete with a little flourish of the cape.

@Average Random Videos I think her dragon design fits her character, it bugs me the design is used for the other dragons because it fits Sisu more the most in my opinion, her not looking like a traditional asian dragon makes Sisu more unique, in my opinion..

It certainly would be a nice step forward for Disney to start teaching the younger generations, especially young women, that it’s okay, and beautiful to have imperfections. Because so many of us have grown up in a society that expects you to look perfect, and if you don’t, you’re “ugly” or “unattractive.” Its bred this whole ideology in young girls and women that’s caused disorders like anorexia and social anxiety. It’s okay to strive to better yourself, while still not hating or self depreciating how and who you are.

Anyone else notice just how many people the Druun wiped out? If there were 5 clans to begin with, Tail is essentially a person-less wasteland, Heart got abandoned when the Gem split, and Spine got wrecked by the Druun with only a sole survivor, there were only 2 clans left: Talon, built on the water, and Fang, walled off by water on an artificial island. That means that about 60% of the world got wiped out just by the Druun.

I also want to point out the position of her hand. She is mimicking the stone-statue people with a "giving" gesture. Now, I don't know how to fully interpret this observation with how she also made herself part of the final trap of her tomb. One idea I had was that she set up that trap, but as the last moments of her life come, she realizes her utter mistake and made one final gesture to atone. Or she made that gesture on purpose to draw the tomb raider in the hopes of giving them a false sense of security (like it almost did to Sisu).

I think we need to touch on how great the animation is, especially when things are wet. The slight darkening of Benja's gloves after he dips them in the water in the beginning, or the shine on Raya's hair after everyone comes back, or the way Sisu's "hair" kind of clings to her head when she does that little spin in the water. Even the shine on Raya's cheek after she wipes her tear right before she awakens Sisu. The animation in this movie is so smooth and detailed in some shots and it's beautiful the whole way through. I love how you can see the individual fiber strands that make up Tong's tunic, too

Something I noticed when watching the movie is that at you look at Sisu’s older brother when Sisu’s family is using the gem (15:27 in the video) his hands are cupped like how the people who got turned to stone hands are, which means that the pose that those people have is technically them putting their trust in Sisu to use the gem.

The trust theme would be fine if it weren't so incomplete. The problem is that Namaari lacks any kind of redemption arc. She betrayed Raya, and in a way that completely destroyed the known world - not a small betrayal - and does nothing at no time ever in the film to indicate that she is deserving of a second chance. Without that redemption arc, without requiring that Namaari demonstrate *some* kind of desire to change, the trust theme is dangerous. That's how people get trapped in abusive relationships. The world, the real world, our world isn't suffering due to a lack of trust, it's suffering due to a lack of repentance (meaning change of heart, not even religious). Were people who caused harm more willing to admit their wrong and actively change, trust would immediately follow.

What most cultures define as crime, and punish with intensity as crime, tends to be that which the poor resort to, rather than what the rich do that nonetheless is equally morally questionable to the crimes the poor resort to. Not to mention, those who usually face jail time for what they've done that's criminal tends to go with whether they can afford getting bailed out.

I'm a huge sucker for dragons, and elemental type stuff where different tribes have different elements or areas they live in, so this movie got me hooked in almost instantly. I'm kind of glad that they didn't make Raya and Namaari into those "secret siblings" cliche because that's originally what I thought would happen. The scene where they all turned to stone would've really got me if the credits started to roll.

When he started listing southeast asian weapons and martial arts i got really giddy for no reason lmfao. As a southeast asian individual who hails from the philippines, it's so amazing how he was able to recognize fighting styles, and research the weapons used by Namaari, and Raya, like the Filipino Arnis. These were small bits I didn't think western people would get, but i'm pleasently suprised! thank you

Another fun detail I love about this movie is when Raya comes up to have her final confrontation with Namaari. When she brings the stone up and repealed the Druun coming towards her, two of them are shown being repelled, showing that one life just ended so that they could replicate, meaning they had JUST killed Namarri's mom or relatively recently. This gives her even more reason to be angry and spiteful towards Raya, giving the last battle that much more tension.

Finally got round to watching the film this morning (as well as Encanto, waiting for that EGA vid) and it is beautiful.

So much heart and loss and relief and joy crammed into one small word.

One thing I caught in this movie that I wanted to share was that the main vehicle for getting around in the whole movie is a floating restaurant! As the adventure party gathers, they have many scenes of them interacting and becoming family in a place meant for food. I think there is a good theme of eating together brings people together thing going on, set up by Raya's dad talking about the soup made from different ingredients across the land. As the story goes on, we see the party bonding more and more over food the entire time!

"Sisu" is a word in Finnish. It doesn't translate well into English but it's basically the definition of "not giving up" and "having guts to do so". Or as a simple google search says "strength of will" But I don't think the producers knew the word existed although the word describes Sisu in the film pretty well.

I realized something about the scene leading to the Dragon Gem breaking. All the Fang people saw the firework and immediately knew what the signal was for. This means that Namaari was NOT the only one in on the plan to steal the gem, and based on her other interactions with her mother, I doubt it was even her idea. Also, Chief Virana seems like a smart enough ruler she would have given flares and instructions to multiple people, not just her own daughter, so the plan would have more chances at succeeding. You do mention some of this at the end of the video, but I just really like when movies that give redemption arcs to the main antagonists don’t make them completely unlikeable from the start.

The trust message was very dangerously portrayed. Namaari does not show any remorse or have a significant redemption arc. Only saying that she never meant for any of this to happen at the very end is not nearly enough. Her betrayal traumatized Raya for life so Raya being paranoid about Nymaari cocking the crossbow is not a sin. It's trauma. Trusting someone once you've been betrayed by that person, when they've shown no regret or significant change is not the message I would want kids learning. There is good stuff in the movie. Great art style and music and some interesting world building but let down by terrible execution of the main message and I just couldn't stand Sisu's character.

My list of things I loved about this movie + my list of things that could have been changed: -The effects. Just the lighting of the water and tone of Raya’s skin are stupidly good animation. -The dragons designs. They are long fluffy magic noodles. That is just beautiful. -Shisu’s misunderstanding of the world around her. It makes sense that, after the last thing you remember doing o save the world is having to trust people, you would naturally think that everyone is to be trusted. -The angry old lady chief. Idk why. She makes me happy even tho she betrayed Shisu. -The FOOD EFFECTS. GOD IT MADE ME SO HUNGRY WATCHING -The fact that Tounge(I think??) likes the baby because he misses his own child. -Just seeing how the hatred had changed Raya after Shisu was killed. She was ready to kill. It added a great effect. -The symbolism. How, because Shisu is the last dragon, and she is a water dragon, her being killed drained the water. Water truly is ‘magical’ in this world, as it acts as protection against the Druun. Also, how when they basically become un-stoned, the rain is what washes it away. Rain is water. It is Shisus magic and trust that saves them. Now, things that should have been changed: -A better Namaari redemption arc. We didn’t have much of her in the movie. I believe that there should have been more of her realizing how corrupted the world was, and how she wanted to change it. -A close up of her finger off the trigger, not on. If they had showed that she was hesitating on shooting and had decided not to. If that had been shown, it would have created the impression that Namaari had finally been redeemed. However, it was Raya lashing out in her distrust that killed Shisu. I’ve operated a few crossbows, and hitting them while they are loaded DEFINITELY sets them off. That was all for now. I will update more later.

The movie is already 1 year old!!! It’s gorgeously animated, Kelly Marie Tran and Awkafina give such fun, lighthearted performances, the mythology is well-put together, and making the statement of different nations coming together and learning to try and trust one another is done very well. I especially like the rivalry of Raya and her childhood friend. Ended up being a lot more enjoyable than I thought. It also continues to succeed in more representation as far as modern female Disney figures are concerned.

I absolutely love the moment right after Sisu is shot where it zooms in on Raya and shows her reaction. From the animation that shows the true fury in her eyes to her raged filled breathing. It’s such a subtle detail, but it was one of the most realistic animated scenes I’ve ever seen.

Something I think a whole lot of people miss is that the message of the movie isn't simply about trust, it's about mutual trust. Every instance where trust turns out to be a mistake is one where the characters are interacting with people who have been told not to trust their whole lives, and in Namaari's case, she's also being manipulated/instructed by her mother, who doesn't trust the other lands. Ultimately, a lack of mutual trust created the literal apocalypse (twice, according to Sisu), but its trust that saves the world and begins the process of repairing it at the end of the film. Namaari finally decided to take a risk for someone other than Fang, and Raya and co. realized that holding onto hatred and grudges (which have kept their world back for, oh, 500 years) was only going to make things worse. Edit: yeah, I made this comment, like, halfway through. Thank you, Cinemawins, for addressing this issue and taking a new angle on it I hadn't seen before. Your point is honestly stronger than mine, since it faces a hard truth of life: that sometimes, trust has to go one way before it becomes mutual.

So a really cool thing, Sisu's "water stepping" is in the "Avatar" world as well! In the Avatar Kyoshi books she learns a technique that all benders can use called Dust Stepping- Water Benders do this (little suspended water/ice platforms they leap on) Airbenders and Firebenders do short bursts of air or fire, and Earthbenders grab dust/sand/small rocks and jump off those

One detail that always stood out to me in this movie is that when the Druun were closing in, there was one citizen from each clan gathered in the same place, and even though they all came from completely different backgrounds and places, they decided to put trust into each other in a moment where they knew they had to let go of their differences and past. Absolutely love this movie; it honestly deserves more recognition for the amount of hard work that was put into its production. And give it up for James Newton Howard for creating such a majestic and amazing soundtrack, indeed an excellent masterpiece.

Can we just win the gorgeous and intricate details in the animation. Not just the landscapes but the unique look to each of the dragons and the details in the clothes and hairstyles. The animation is just stunning.

3:55 When you hear a tone shift in Namaari's voice, you know that Namaari played Raya.

Dunno if anyone things about this, but it really sucks that Raya's father missed like 6 YEARS of Raya's growth. That's time he'll never get back. It's like he went to sleep and she was a kid the last he saw her, and then the minute he woke up again, she was a full grown adult. Time passed for Raya, but for the chief it could have felt like the blink of an eye. That had to be so jarring, and I honestly don't think that they made that clear enough. He recognized her immediately, but I really would have appreciated some mention of 'how you've grown' or 'when did you get so big?'

@Cyber Criminal it’s not Raya’s fault that Fang’s people-in-charge had clearly made plans before arriving at Heart. Given the way they respond instantly to the flare Namaari sent up, I’m sure they’d had a briefing session ahead of time. Based on what we see of Virana’s leadership I also doubt that she would have relied on *only* her daughter to look for the dragon gem, I bet she gave flares to several of her people and instructed them all to search-perhaps it would have taken them longer if Raya hadn’t brought Namaari there, but they may still have found it.

@Eat Moneyz Honestly it's more of his daughter's fault for bringing the princess of enemy nation to a sacred place (not blaming Raya ofc since she was a kid and she misinterpreted his words). Chief himself did nothing wrong.

The whole way through the movie had major vibes of the WoW expansion Mists of Pandaria (Asian themed, eastern dragons, big purple and black blobby monsters...) and Avatar the last Airbender (obvious reasons) and I thought it'd have made a great series too. Would love to see more of that world.

I feel like even if this theme was a little on the nose (boop) and it's something that some people will look at and say "yeah whatever, trust people." We need that pounded into our heads. It's become normalized, especially after the last few years, to close yourself off and take the weight of the world on your shoulders alone. Trust is our most valuable resource, and if we can't give it, then it's worth nothing. That first step means everything, we just have to be willing to take it. Also this movie was supposed to push that idea even more in an earlier draft where the dragons and the main characters all stayed as stone, and the remaining people had to follow their example without the safety net of dragons to fall into. While it does fit the theme a hair better, this is a disney film and it's nice to feel good, so I'm happy it ended more upbeat.

I wish that there was more character development of raya. Honestly it should have showed a bunch of her failed attempts of trying to find sisu, and her slowly loosing hope and then she gets tired and maybe annoyed when she comes to the last one but still somewhat hopeful. Also I feel like sisu should have been introduced a bit later on as it was the first big goal and there should have been more to look at the effort put into finding sisu. And honestly I don’t like the baby in the monkey gang thing I feel like it should have been just monkey things. They could have put more effort into the story and honestly this is one of the more forgetful Disney movies and the type where you forget what happened when and how it ended. It’s still kinda good but the story could have been better but all this is just my opinion (Also sisu and the other dragons could have been designed better and more East Asian looking at least face wise. She isn’t as threatening as she should be in a couple scenes. Again my opinions so yeah

I just love this movie, kinda wished it was a bit longer to explore better the world built in the story, the different populations and all, it was really an interesting thing. The best part was watching it with family and friend, there was my friend's granny asking: "What do binturi and dep la mean?" and we explained that, researching a bit, the funny thing is that they seems to be almost like an angry flirt (like "dep la" beig similar to the vietnamese "dep" that means beautiful and the fact that it is translated as "strangely beautiful" and "best friends"), she just exclaimed: "Oh, there was no need for strange languages! Those two just need to fuck the tension between them off and stop babbling about the furry snake! It's clear as day!" (Just adore that woman). The dragons' desings and powers are so cool too, probably among the best fictional dragons we ever had in a movie that could have goon for goofier and less cool desings (since it is a family product, it can happen that some choose the more "easy and almost-ugly" desing thinking that kids won't mind those instead of something cool that can interest more people). But now, let's talk about how Namaari's mother could have just be quiet about the: "Yeah, we should just force a powerful and mighty beast to come with us and take the glory, instead of seriously helping and clear our name!", that woman just had to shut up and Sisu would have avoided death and Namaari would have avoided the possible trauma, even if the final fight was cool as fuck to watch.

You missed the moment after the first bug explodes and raya shoves sisu out of the way, when they look down that hall of other bugs, sisu subtly puts an arm protectively in front of Raya. It was subtle and cute and great.

You did something new in terms of animation. It'd be fun to see you do something a little older? For the sound design, score, animation, shot composition, and overall visual aesthetic alone this movie deserves it's time in the spotlight. I give you, Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NEW BABY! Thanks for covering this film. Raya and the Last Dragon was such a joy to experience.

I appreciate your positivity even about movies that a lot of people aren’t super fond of, but with win counter 152, I think that the whole thing of raya giving Naomi the option of either A. Turning to stone and dying with everyone else, or B. Not turning to stone and saving anyone, does not show trust, Naomi has to put together the stone or else she will die, that does not mean that she cares at all about Raya, I mean even the worst people in history would do that because it involves self preservation. When your trust is broken, the person who broke your trust should be the one to take the first step to mend it, not the other way around. What they should have done is given Naomi another option of getting out with the stone and her life, leaving raya to be turned to stone, but still have her choose to save everyone to actually put meaning into the moment.

There's nothing wrong with saying you find Sisu attractive, I do too. Dragons are very beautiful creatures, especially the dragonesses. I've honestly never seen a dragoness that didn't look beautiful. I also look at inner beauty and Sisu is beautiful on the inside just as much as the outside. She's sweet, loyal, wise, majestic, spiritual, strong but gentle, and an extraordinarily kind soul.

So many shots in this movie looked soooo realistic it was amazing, and it was never unsettling (except for how real the Druun felt, but like kudos on it either way) it was just such a stunning movie to watch. On the same note, but as an aside: I know we already know that Disney and Pixar and most animation studios have perfected water, but when I watched this movie with my GF, and the scene were Sisu falls in the water and it shows a shot of it splashing up after her impact, yea... I legit paused the movie and went "ok, I'm sorry, I know this is emotional and all but LOOK AT THAT SPLASH! ARE WE SURE THAT WASN'T JUST A CLIP OF ACTUAL WATER SPLASHING???" and I thought of you and times when you've said similar things and I have been thinking about it since I watched the movie. So glad you enjoyed this movie!

The one thing that I love of what they did with this movie that makes it hit differently and stand out from other Asian cultured movies like Mulan is they actually got somebody on the scene who KNOWS about marital arts and the different styles, techniques and weapons they also did this with karate kid 2013, Jade Smith had to LEARN Kung Fu in order to do everything right.

so ima make my own tiny win counter here and adding them to your counter of 161 at the end of the video 1. the detail of Sisu's fur is on point both when drie and fluffy or when and damp 2. the realistic culture like areas that each location has that also help make them feel much more real 3. the Druun, these things have no true shape and the animation on them must have been difficult with being weird purple gak esc monsters 4. the positions most people go into when turned to stone look as if they are praying for water 5. when it began to rain at the end turning them all back the small cracks on the statues and the water running down them just amazing 6. last one, the fact of how Sisu as a human has a really unkept hair which is a neet nod to the fact that most likely that as a dragon she has no need or reason to groom/brush it over all that combined with your 161, is a total of 167 wins

I know a lot of people bash on Sisu's design, that she isn't the typical "dragon" design, but her design is actually really nice since she's based on the eastern dragon style with some floof it actually reminds me of how I use to draw eastern dragons
