Disney’s animated movie RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON (starring Awkwafina, Kelly Marie Tran, and more) resonates deeply on the themes we discussed last week in our episode “OSLO and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict,” inspired by Broadway’s Tony Award-winning Best Play OSLO (now also an HBO film).
In Season 2, host Ruthie Fierberg releases a main panel episode every other week. In the off weeks (like this week), she drops mini-episodes in which she recommends another piece of art that relates to the previous week’s topic in an effort to broaden our thinking and encourage the consumption of great stories. This week, Ruthie draws the connections between OSLO and Disney’s RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON.
Watch Raya and the Last Dragon on Disney+.
