Disney Reveals “Raya and the Last Dragon” International Trailer with The Hit House composer Dan Diaz’s Enhancement Contributions

Dragons are awesome & Disney dragons are even awesomer (that’s a word, correct(?), well now it is)! & Disney dragons fixing the world are even awesomerer! That said, even the ne plus ultra of dragons & trailers need the perfect music, so… That’s where we gratefully entered the frame, or audio-speakers as it were. For their Official International Raya and the Last Dragon trailer Disney needed enhancements to their song “What A World We Live In,” & luckily that’s The Hit House’s speciality, well one of our specialities. Thus we were honored to have our composer Dan Diaz contribute his enhancements to this newest Disney trailer!

The soon to premiere Raya and the Last Dragon is an animated action-adventure fantasy film directed by Don Hall & Carlos López Estrada, & co-directed by Paul Briggs & John Ripa. In the fictional world of Kumandra, dragons & humans once lived together in peace until the evil Druun monsters invaded & the dragons saved the world through their own sacrifice. Now the shattered peace has divided the land into five parts of Fang, Heart, Spine, Tail, & Talon. The Warrior Princess Raya (voiced by Kelly Marie Tran) & her faithful pet pill bug Tuk Tuk set off to find the last dragon, Sisu (voiced by Awkwafina) to enlist her help to finally destroy the Druun forever. Together with the last water dragon & a united band of misfits, Boun, Tong, Noi, & the Ongis, Raya learns to trust again & rely on her friends to try to defeat the Druun. Raya and the Last Dragon also stars the voice-acting talents of Gemma Chan, Daniel Dae Kim, Sandra Oh, Benedict Wong, Jona Xiao, Izaac Wang, Thalia Tran, & Alan Tudyk.

Divided worlds, riven with strife, must be united against evil. In that vein Raya and the Last Dragon shows a beautiful path forward. We’re excited to watch the tale when it arrives theatrically & simultaneously on Disney+ with Premier Access on this March 5, so get your tickets & order early now. Until then, we’re proud to have contributed to this international trailer. When your next adventure needs the ideal song enhanced or even an original piece, keep us in mind & sound the call, for we’ll be your merry band of misfits that work united to vanquish your foe!
