Raya and the Last Dragon

Ushering in a new era of heroic Disney Princesses, the studio’s latest original fantasy-adventure is questing to disc with a new traveling companion: Zach Parrish’s short Us Again. From directors Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada and co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, the movie brings the lush Southeast Asian-inspired world of Kumandra to life as we follow Raya (Kelly Marie Tran) on her mission to find the last dragon (Awkwafina) in order to restore harmony to the land and repel the monstrous Druun. The new release also boasts deleted scenes, outtakes, Easter eggs and in-depth special features. (Tuk Tuk not included.) [Disney, DVD $20 | BD $25 | 4K $30]

The Prince’s Voyage

When the old monkey Prince Laurent runs aground on an unknown shore, he is found and taken in by young Tom and his parents, a couple of scientists who were banished from their community because they believe in the existence of other monkey civilizations. Thus the beautifully crafted intrigue of Jean-François Laguionie’s (The Painting) latest animated feature begins to unfold in vintage-toned 2D/3D. Co-directed by Xavier Picard (Moomins on the Riviera), the Annecy, Stuttgart and Locarno-selected film is produced by France’s Blue Spirit and Luxembourg’s Melusine, and arrives on Blu-ray in North America complemented by a bonus directors’ interview and a study of the “Ice Flow” sequence. Another enchanting European indie to add to your collection! [Shout! Factory, BD $20]
