Introducing a new member into the team of Disney Princess is Raya. Raya is a warrior who is set on a mission to track down Sisu, a dragon who transferred all her powers into a gem, now scattered all across the kingdom of Kumandra. The powers that rest in the gem are the reason for the divide in the people. Disney gains inspiration for this character through Southeast Asian influences. We can’t wait to see her adventures with little Tuk-Tuk.
