Disney’s newest animated characteristic, Raya and the Final Dragon, is now accessible to buy digitally on FandangoNOW and Vudu. The hilarious and visually breathtaking film follows the action-packed journey of a warrior princess (voiced by Kelly Marie Tran) who groups up with a wacky dragon (Awkwafina) to save lots of their world from an evil entity that’s turning everybody into stone. If you purchase Raya and the Final Dragon, you additionally get a bunch of extras, together with deleted scenes, outtakes, options about the way it was made, the animated brief movie Us Once more and extra.

Direct from its theatrical launch, Chaos Strolling can be now accessible digitally from FandangoNOW and Vudu for the primary time, as a premium VOD rental. The sci-fi motion film — directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Id) and based mostly on the best-selling dystopian YA novel The Knife of By no means Letting Go — pairs Spider-Man actor Tom Holland and Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley in a future-set story of survival in a time and a world the place males’s ideas are uncovered and girls are extinct.

If you wish to transcend the borders of Disney films and even exterior of animation, I additionally assume it goes very effectively with The NeverEnding Story with its dragon sidekick, Falkor, and its summary evil entity, The Nothing.    

For Chaos Strolling, you can also make a double characteristic with director Doug Liman’s different future-set sci-fi motion film, Fringe of Tomorrow. There’s additionally the primary installment of the YA-based Maze Runner franchise, which equally introduces a mysterious feminine character right into a world of males, or Alfonso Cuarón’s dystopian sci-fi film Youngsters of Males, wherein one pregnant lady in a time of absolute infertility is escorted by means of harmful territory.

But you’ll in all probability need one thing simply as foolish, so pair it with Austin Powers: Worldwide Man of Thriller, which matches effectively with Barb & Star’s ridiculous villain and her evil scheme, or Keanu, one other loopy comedy wherein two different common of us get pulled right into a wild plot.
