Disney animated movie Raya And The Last Dragon looks set to have a three month ‘Premier Access’ window on Disney+.
The snoops at a Disney+ blog are reporting HTML on the streaming service’s website gives away its no-surcharge premiere date for Raya And The Last Dragon. If its story is to be believed, the film’s premium rate release window expires on 5 June 2021.
That means anybody wanting to see the film at home between its March release and 4 June will be paying the Premier Access charge, as was the case with the live action Mulan last year. Pixar’s Soul, you may recall, went straight to the service on Christmas day with no uplift pricing. ‘Twas the season.
There’s bound to be a lot of online chatter with people expressing their intent to either pay the premium and watch Raya in March, or to simply wait until June. Of course, there’s no right answer – it’s hardly worth discussing at all. Just do the one you want. Want to pay the price? Great. It’s your money. The only crappy option would be to pirate the film and not pay for it at all.
A new trailer for Raya landed last week. Not only did this promo confirm Disney’s intent to give the film a release in UK cinemas – if they’re open, that is, and I wouldn’t bet on this just yet – it also gave us a good look at what the movie entails.
I quite enjoyed it, I’ll admit, and I’m sure it’s going to look smashing on nice big screens. Here’s hoping we all get the option to enjoy it that way one day.
