You can experience “Raya and the Last Dragon” in a unique way later this month at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – just a few weeks before the film releases in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access!
Starting Feb. 22, guests can learn to draw new characters from the film, including Raya’s companion Tuk Tuk, at The Animation Experience at Conservation Station.
Part-pill bug, part-pug, part-high speed off-road vehicle and 100% adorable, Tuk Tuk has been Raya’s best friend since she could hold him in the palm of her hand. As part of this drawing experience, guests will get a behind-the-scenes look at inspiration for the creature shared by Kelly Marie Tran (voice of Raya) and Awkwafina (voice of Sisu).
Over at the Discovery Island Stage, artists will be working on a 40-ton sand sculpture celebrating the new film. The display will feature Raya, Tuk Tuk, Sisu the last dragon and the Ongi, all set int eh fantasy world of Kumandra. It takes a team of two artists over 24 hours to build and carve the display made entirely from sand. Guests will be able to watch them work Feb. 19-21 and the carving will remain on display through the end of March.
