“Raya and the Last Dragon” Animation Experience and Sand Sculpture Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

With the release of Raya and the Last Dragon just around the corner, two new experiences inspired by the film are coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.


Beginning February 22, guests will be able to learn how to draw characters from the film at The Animation Experience in Conservation Station, including Raya’s animal sidekick Tuk Tuk. The experience will also include a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration for Tuk Tuk hosted by Kelly Marie Tran (voice or Raya) and Awkwafina (voice of Sisu).

On Discovery Island Stage, artists will be creating a 40-ton sand sculpture featuring Raya, Tuk Tuk, Sisu, and Ongi. The artists will be building the sculpture from February 19 through February 21, and it will remain on display through March.
