QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Fantasy/Action-Adventure: A young warrior sets out to find a dragon she hopes can help her reunite broken pieces of a powerful gem that will vanquish the evil that's overrun her world and help reunite her land's divided people.
PLOT:

Long ago, almost everyone in the land of Kumandra got along and lived peacefully. But then mindless monster entities known as the Druun descended on the land and wreaked havoc everywhere, destroying property and turning any living beings they encountered into stone.

Thankfully, the land's dragons banded together to form a powerful gem that destroyed the Druun and reversed the stone spell for all. That is, except for the dragons. With them gone, the people of Kumandra turned on each other and split into various warring factions and the Lands of Fang, Heart, Talon, Spine, and Tail, all wanting the gem for themselves.

It's remained hidden for the past 500 years, thanks to the efforts of Heart ruler Chief Benja (voice of DANIEL DAE KIM) and his many ancestors. Now, his teenage daughter, Raya (voice of KELLY MARIE TRAN), has been added to the lineage and with her training, she's certain to keep the gem protected for another generation.

But at a gathering of all the lands, she makes the mistake of showing the gem to fellow teenager Namaari (voice of GEMMA CHAN), the princess daughter of Virana (voice of SANDRA OH) who leads Fang. In the resultant scuffle between forces on both sides, the gem ends up broken, once again releasing the Druun which sends everyone fleeing for their homelands with a piece of the stone. It also leaves Chief Benja frozen in stone and Raya determined to reverse that situation.

Legend has it that if someone can find the water dragon Sisu (voice of AWKWAFINA) and put all the gem pieces back together, the Druun will again be defeated and those turned to stone returned to normalcy. Now six years later, Raya -- on her loyal and humongous armadillo-pill bug steed known as Tuk Tuk -- is still searching, as is Namaari for her.

Raya ends up unleashing Sisu who's initially unaware of the passage of time and they begin a journey together that ultimately has them running into toddler Noi (voice of THALIA TRAN) and her thieving trio of monkey thieves; pre-teen Boun (voice of IZAAC WANG) who runs a restaurant on his boat that he keeps on the water to avoid the Druun; and Tong (voice of BENEDICT WONG), the last warrior of his land.

Despite their initial differences and seeing Namaari and her warriors as their common enemy, they band together to find and reunite the stone pieces, vanquish the Druun and free those frozen in stone.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Many probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
