Walt Disney Animation Studios presents the first animated film inspired by the cultural diversity of countries in Southeast Asia, Raya and The Last Dragon.
This diversity is reflected in the motifs, colors, architecture, food, and values, habits, and customs that are very close to the daily life of the people of Southeast Asia.
Raya and The Last Dragon’s director, Carlos López Estrada, ensured that the audience would experience the natural richness and beautiful culture of Southeast Asia in Kumandra.
“Even though Kumandra is a fictional fantasy world, we designed Kumandra to remain dynamic and depict everyday life that is so close to the people of Southeast Asia,” said Carlos.
According to him, Raya and The Last Dragon are a tribute to the diversity of cultures that have inspired Kumandra’s story and world.
To note, Kumandra is a country that is in the animated film Raya and The Last Dragon. To find the appropriate elements of culture, customs, and nature, the film crew travels to all countries in Southeast Asia.
The production process of this film also involves a group of experts who help provide insight into the existing culture of each country, consisting of anthropologists, architects, linguists, dancers, and traditional music players.
This animated film also involves an artist from Indonesia, Griselda Sastrawinata, as a visual development artist with Luis Logam as a story artist.
