“Raya and the Last Dragon” will be released simultaneously on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+, and in theaters on March 5, 2021, the company announced on Thursday.
Like the live-action adaptation of “Mulan,” the upcoming film will be released on Prime Access with a separate fee of $30 to rent on top of the monthly subscription fee of $7.99 per month, according to Variety.
