Disney animation. In a realm known as Kumandra (based on the landscape and cultures of South-East Asia), humans and dragons once lived in harmony. In order to defeat the evil force, the Druun, a young warrior has to find the last dragon and unite the human clans.
With stunning animation and a strong female protagonist (and a complex plot), the film is considerably lightened by Awkwafina, voicing Sisu, the last dragon.
