Disney shares a supporting cast including Daniel Dae Kim, Gemma Chan, Sandra Oh, Benedict Wong, and Alan Tudyk.

Raya and the Last Dragon’s titular heroine was last seen preparing to go for the hunt for Kumandra’s sole remaining dragon to save her kingdom. The second trailer for the Disney animated movie was released on Tuesday, Raya (Kelly Marie Tran) has found the illusive Sisu after six years of searching. And she seems to be someone else and not what the warrior expected.

“I’m gonna be real with you. I’m not, like, the best dragon,” Sisu, voiced by Awkwafina, admits to Raya. “Have you ever done like a group project but there’s like that one kid who didn’t pitch in as much but still ends up with the same grade?”

Raya has decided to protect her home from the Druun monsters, recruits a ragtag team that came together from different lands in Kumandra to support her and Sisu. EW had earlier teased the supporting players, and now Disney has unveiled the voice cast.

Coming from the land of Talon, there’s Little Noi (Thalia Tran), the most adorable “con baby” along with her partners in crime, the Ongis. Raya decides to continue her search and join along with the formidable giant Tong (Doctor Strange’s Benedict Wong), a warrior from Spine; and Boun (Izaac Wang), a 10-year old entrepreneur. There’s Tuk Tuk. Alan Tudyk, who also had a role in every Disney animated film since Wreck-It-Ralph, will voice Raya’s trusty steed.

The trailer also reveals the masked fighter in the film’s first clip as Raya’s wise father Benja, played by Daniel Dae Kim. Rounding out the supporting cast are Gemma Chan as Raya’s nemesis, Namaari; Sandra Oh as Namaari’s powerful mother, Virana; Lucille Soong as Dang Hu, the leader of Talon; Patti Harrison as the chief of the land of Tail; and Ross Butler as chief of the Spine land.

Raya’s filmmakers had shared with EW about the film and that it won’t feature characters singing, there will be music influenced by Southeast Asia, which is the cultural inspiration for Raya.

“Our composer, James Newton Howard [The Dark Knight, The Hunger Games], did a lot of research and worked with musicians from the region as well to find the specific instrumentation,” producer Osnat Shurer said. “But he was telling a story as a good composer does in music and lifting us as we need lifting, and building the emotion. I think he did a really beautiful job.”

Watch the action-packed trailer above. Raya and the Last Dragon debuts on March 5 in theatres and on Disney+ with premier access.
