I'm just very happy someone else is finally saying that "trust everyone blindly" was never the message of the movie.

@Alexzander Oh for heaven's sake, it's called DESPERATION! Sisu did what she did regardless of every outcome because she was DESPERATE to bring everyone back! (and btw, the thing with the baby happened to Raya, NOT Sisu!) She KNEW the dragon gem was about trust! She KNEW she had to keep trying! She KNEW that regardless of what happened to her, any sort of mistrust could no longer be afforded with the Druun running unchecked feeding off of it! She KNEW it was the only way to bring everyone back! She KNEW that if she just gave up and decided people can't be trusted at all just because of a few unlucky encounters like you (and Raya) were suggesting she should've done, then the dragon gem would stop working altogether, she would be leaving the fate of everyone to the Druun, and she would be going against EVERYTHING that her brother Pengu and the other siblings sacrificed themselves for! Her brother could've easily left humanity to rot because they proved themselves untrustworthy in the past. But he didn't. Because dragons in eastern mythology are depicted as selfless and valuing other lives more than their own. And that's EXACTLY what Sisu was doing when she presented herself at crossbow point, what you call foolish and a lack of judgement, I call being selfless and brave. Once again, she KNEW she was putting herself at risk, but unfortunately there was no other way. I would do the exact same thing if it meant saving everyone, and if I die, I can at least take comfort in that I did everything I could. Why is all of this so hard for you people to grasp?

I think Raya’s “doom walk” is one of the cinematic highlights of the movie for me. Especially the part where she splits a Druun *without even slowing down*, complete with a little flourish of the cape.

I can't agree with our host saying she didn't care anymore. But at that moment, Raya had to feel betrayed, AGAIN, and was grief-stricken over Sisu.

It certainly would be a nice step forward for Disney to start teaching the younger generations, especially young women, that it’s okay, and beautiful to have imperfections. Because so many of us have grown up in a society that expects you to look perfect, and if you don’t, you’re “ugly” or “unattractive.” Its bred this whole ideology in young girls and women that’s caused disorders like anorexia and social anxiety. It’s okay to strive to better yourself, while still not hating or self depreciating how and who you are.

Something I noticed when watching the movie is that at you look at Sisu’s older brother when Sisu’s family is using the gem (15:27 in the video) his hands are cupped like how the people who got turned to stone hands are, which means that the pose that those people have is technically them putting their trust in Sisu to use the gem.

Anyone else notice just how many people the Druun wiped out? If there were 5 clans to begin with, Tail is essentially a person-less wasteland, Heart got abandoned when the Gem split, and Spine got wrecked by the Druun with only a sole survivor, there were only 2 clans left: Talon, built on the water, and Fang, walled off by water on an artificial island. That means that about 60% of the world got wiped out just by the Druun.

I think we need to touch on how great the animation is, especially when things are wet. The slight darkening of Benja's gloves after he dips them in the water in the beginning, or the shine on Raya's hair after everyone comes back, or the way Sisu's "hair" kind of clings to her head when she does that little spin in the water. Even the shine on Raya's cheek after she wipes her tear right before she awakens Sisu. The animation in this movie is so smooth and detailed in some shots and it's beautiful the whole way through. I love how you can see the individual fiber strands that make up Tong's tunic, too

@Denver Miller I have a feeling that Namari was once a "golden child" and when she grew up she became a people pleaser (mom pleaser?). I haven't seen the movie tho so eh 🤷 . Also still doesn't make sense why they just made the gang trust just cause

@TotoTats16 Maybe because she was a victim of abuse, which is what made her what she was, eventually realizes that she's the one who's wrong and tries to fix it, going so far as to sacrifice herself? I mean, cycles of abuse and breaking free of them is kind of a fundamental aspect of the entire series. And lets not act like Adora didn't hurt Catra. That level of of the whole toxicity is way more complicated, but it was very much present, by Shadow Weaver's design. Bottom line, anyone should be worthy of redemption. Doesn't mean they should get off scott free, mind you, but I'm willing to allow it for someone who was raised by birth and brainwashed into being a child soldier.

The trust theme would be fine if it weren't so incomplete. The problem is that Namaari lacks any kind of redemption arc. She betrayed Raya, and in a way that completely destroyed the known world - not a small betrayal - and does nothing at no time ever in the film to indicate that she is deserving of a second chance. Without that redemption arc, without requiring that Namaari demonstrate *some* kind of desire to change, the trust theme is dangerous. That's how people get trapped in abusive relationships. The world, the real world, our world isn't suffering due to a lack of trust, it's suffering due to a lack of repentance (meaning change of heart, not even religious). Were people who caused harm more willing to admit their wrong and actively change, trust would immediately follow.

S1m0ne

@Rosie Johnson I hadn't made a list, honestly. But I think little things like what we discussed, but several of them spread out that would show Namaari slowly having a change of heart over the course of the movie, and a moment of Raya seeing that Namaari has changed and is worthy of trust even if Namaari doesn't realize it herself, is all you really need. Just enough to justify Raya choosing to trust her during the climax.

@S1m0ne my thoughts exactly! And now I'm curious, which other small changes did you have in mind?

S1m0ne

@Rosie Johnson If instead they had shown a close up of Namaari's finger *OFF* the trigger, showing her removing her finger from the trigger right before Raya jumped in, THAT would have made an impact. It would have shown Sisu's trust had been rewarded and Raya's lack of trust would have been the inciting incident. Even with that change, it's not really enough to overcome the general lack of a redemption arc for Namaari. The "trust your abusers" theme hinges on more than just that scene. But similar *small* changes throughout the movie could have solved it.

I'm a huge sucker for dragons, and elemental type stuff where different tribes have different elements or areas they live in, so this movie got me hooked in almost instantly. I'm kind of glad that they didn't make Raya and Namaari into those "secret siblings" cliche because that's originally what I thought would happen. The scene where they all turned to stone would've really got me if the credits started to roll.

I went into this movie not knowing anything about it and having no expectations, and ended up loving it so much. The message about trust is incredibly timely, though it's probably falling upon deaf ears among the politically inclined adults. I hope the kids who grow up after watching this movie will remember it when they're in charge of the world.

I also want to point out the position of her hand. She is mimicking the stone-statue people with a "giving" gesture. Now, I don't know how to fully interpret this observation with how she also made herself part of the final trap of her tomb. One idea I had was that she set up that trap, but as the last moments of her life come, she realizes her utter mistake and made one final gesture to atone. Or she made that gesture on purpose to draw the tomb raider in the hopes of giving them a false sense of security (like it almost did to Sisu).

Also, when a character is mistrustful, there is a normal focus while when they embrace Sisu's point of view, there is a bokeh blur instead. By looking at this detail you can see at which moments characters start to change their mind.

One thing I caught in this movie that I wanted to share was that the main vehicle for getting around in the whole movie is a floating restaurant! As the adventure party gathers, they have many scenes of them interacting and becoming family in a place meant for food. I think there is a good theme of eating together brings people together thing going on, set up by Raya's dad talking about the soup made from different ingredients across the land. As the story goes on, we see the party bonding more and more over food the entire time!

Look, I’m just glad someone else is finally sticking up for this absolutely gorgeous, sweet, heartfelt, adorable and fun movie after months of just seeing “Raya is the devil and here’s why” videos being shoved in my face when I didn’t even ask. My only big gripe with this movie is that maybe Sisu should have stayed dead? Then again, after all the growth everyone went through and the genuine comradery they finally achieved after so long being implied that’s the reason the dragons came back, it wouldn’t make sense to leave JUST her dead. Seriously, though, it’s a huge understatement that this movie is gorgeous to look at. Compare this to Dinosaur to see how much Disney has improved over the past 20 years. If people are so keen to not take everything at face value, then I think these movies by Disney deserve the same, because they genuinely fo have heart put into them. (Also Namaari best girl)

I realized something about the scene leading to the Dragon Gem breaking. All the Fang people saw the firework and immediately knew what the signal was for. This means that Namaari was NOT the only one in on the plan to steal the gem, and based on her other interactions with her mother, I doubt it was even her idea. Also, Chief Virana seems like a smart enough ruler she would have given flares and instructions to multiple people, not just her own daughter, so the plan would have more chances at succeeding. You do mention some of this at the end of the video, but I just really like when movies that give redemption arcs to the main antagonists don’t make them completely unlikeable from the start.

What most cultures define as crime, and punish with intensity as crime, tends to be that which the poor resort to, rather than what the rich do that nonetheless is equally morally questionable to the crimes the poor resort to. Not to mention, those who usually face jail time for what they've done that's criminal tends to go with whether they can afford getting bailed out.

I feel like even if this theme was a little on the nose (boop) and it's something that some people will look at and say "yeah whatever, trust people." We need that pounded into our heads. It's become normalized, especially after the last few years, to close yourself off and take the weight of the world on your shoulders alone. Trust is our most valuable resource, and if we can't give it, then it's worth nothing. That first step means everything, we just have to be willing to take it. Also this movie was supposed to push that idea even more in an earlier draft where the dragons and the main characters all stayed as stone, and the remaining people had to follow their example without the safety net of dragons to fall into. While it does fit the theme a hair better, this is a disney film and it's nice to feel good, so I'm happy it ended more upbeat.

I've watched Raya yesterday, for the first time. I cried like a baby for like the last half hour of the movie. I wanted to see a review that praised it. I kept thinking to myself "Is this that 'Disney magic' people talk about?" I was in love. The animation, setting, characters, voicework, the female-lead plot that had LITERALLY all the major players as women, not something you see often... I searched, literally, "raya is good", wanting to see a positive reaction such as mine. The first five or six videos were "Raya is NOT a good movie" and variations of that. Then, a glimmer of hope. A CinemaWins video. Thank you for being such a positive person. Besides me, your're the only other person I've heard of that still found a way to enjoy TRoS.

I know how you feel, this is on and off topic, when Wish Dragon came out on Netflix, I saw hundreds of comments calling it better than Raya and the Last Dragon, which honestly confused me, don’t get me wrong, I loved Wish Dragon, it was a very cute movie but better than Raya? Really? That is a complete overexaggeration! Both Raya and Wish Dragon are both great in their own ways One is not better than the other. There’s a difference between saying one movie is better than the other and it actually being better than the other. ( Note: This is just my opinion, if you like Wish Dragon more than Raya or visa versa, I can respect that )

What I really like about the movie is how it nails the Asian culture, like raya taking her shoes off before going into where the gem is stored (because it’s a very important place) or the traditional clothing or the rice patty’s at the fangs island

I would seriously love a tabletop RPG built around something like this. South-Asian inspired fantasy setting with fantastical creatures but little to no magic on the people side of things sounds like so much fun to just mess around in. tbh the worldbuilding in this movie is just top notch

Finally got round to watching the film this morning (as well as Encanto, waiting for that EGA vid) and it is beautiful. There was one moment that had me in floods of tears, when Raya and her father see each other on the bridge and how she says "Ba" before running to him. So much heart and loss and relief and joy crammed into one small word.

8:21 she was also the first to stir up discord at the meeting of the tribes, and she might have been the one to fire the crossbow. She really only came across as some a hole who was only motivated by greed.

When he started listing southeast asian weapons and martial arts i got really giddy for no reason lmfao. As a southeast asian individual who hails from the philippines, it's so amazing how he was able to recognize fighting styles, and research the weapons used by Namaari, and Raya, like the Filipino Arnis. These were small bits I didn't think western people would get, but i'm pleasently suprised! thank you

Great video, as usual - love your channel - but there were two missed wins, in my opinion. One; Namaari is a reflection of her mother - the haircut and the earring are on opposite sides to each other, but when they stand face-to-face, it is like they reflect each other - maybe hinting at the conflict in Namaari over what her mother is asking of her, that she thinks the opposite? Two; Benedict Wong is always a win.

Yeah, my problem was that this story felt too short and compressed. We have a colourful cast of supporting characters and they don’t get a chance to shine. If this was a trilogy (maybe Disney’s first theatrical), or a third series maybe.

Something I think a whole lot of people miss is that the message of the movie isn't simply about trust, it's about mutual trust. Every instance where trust turns out to be a mistake is one where the characters are interacting with people who have been told not to trust their whole lives, and in Namaari's case, she's also being manipulated/instructed by her mother, who doesn't trust the other lands. Ultimately, a lack of mutual trust created the literal apocalypse (twice, according to Sisu), but its trust that saves the world and begins the process of repairing it at the end of the film. Namaari finally decided to take a risk for someone other than Fang, and Raya and co. realized that holding onto hatred and grudges (which have kept their world back for, oh, 500 years) was only going to make things worse. Edit: yeah, I made this comment, like, halfway through. Thank you, Cinemawins, for addressing this issue and taking a new angle on it I hadn't seen before. Your point is honestly stronger than mine, since it faces a hard truth of life: that sometimes, trust has to go one way before it becomes mutual.

Lots to unpack with the characters, action, story-telling, filming etc. Reckon you could make an awesome video about it

I think my favorite versions of dragons always end up being closest to Sisu and her siblings in temperament. There's just something RIGHT about the intelligent, wise dragon, compared to the ravenous monster. Of course, I'm also incredibly fond of the look of western dragons, all big and wings and stuff, so...

Loved the set design and costume work, also the fights were done amazingly well... Hated the dragon design, felt increadibly My-Little-Pony or something. Very sad they didn't go more in the line of the ancient chinese dragon designs and rather made them like wierd snake unicorns and they should've gone with a less americanized approach, all the voice actors feel so westernized, I was hoping to find more unique accents related to the different countries or tribes

I honestly loved everything in this movie, all the way until the end. Just feels like the lesson is a little hamfisted, in this one. *Everything* else is amazing, though. The style, the animation, the choreography for the fights, the adventure, and most importantly the Sisu R34, were all 10/10. Just wish it was drawn out over a few movies, one for finding Sisu and then one for each gem piece. Or at least a 2 part movie. Maybe a show full of dragon shenanigans, like HTTYD had. Only complaint is that I feel like it would have been 1000% better if it went the "trust is earned, not freely given" route. But maybe that's just me being stung one too many times for trusting people I shouldn't have.
