Like 2020’s live-action movie Mulan, Raya and the Last Dragon is being offered on Disney Plus via an extra Premier Access fee, beyond the normal monthly fee. After you pay the normal $6.99 a month fee, you can unlock Raya and the Last Dragon for an additional $29.99. The good news is that after you unlock it, the movie will be able to watch and stream for as long as you have a Disney Plus subscription.

As with Mulan, the decision to add Raya to Disney Plus is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which is keeping many people from going to theaters. It’s likely that Raya will be available for all Disney Plus subscribers at no additional cost a few months after its debut via Premier Access.
