Raya and the Last Dragon is a stylish movie, and all Disney Plus subscribers can watch it now.

Walt Disney Pictures

Raya and the Last Dragon has been available on Disney Plus as part of the streaming service's $30 Premier Access system since March, but now it's available to all subscribers at no extra cost. The CGI animated adventure follows Raya as she travels through Kumandra, a land inspired by Southeast Asian cultures.

The release follows the same pattern as last year's live-action Mulan remake, which shifted from Premiere Access to the regular Disney Plus library after three months. Marvel's Black Widow is hitting Premiere Access and theaters on July 9, and Jungle Cruise is doing the same on July 30, but it's unclear when they'll come out from behind the paywall.

Raya was originally set to be released in November but was delayed by thecoronavirus pandemic. Raya is voiced by Kelly Marie Tran from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. Awkwafina from Crazy Rich Asians plays Sisu, the last dragon.
