PHOTOS: Artists Update and Add Characters to “Raya and the Last Dragon” Sand Sculpture at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

A few weeks ago, a sand sculpture inspired by Raya and the Last Dragon debuted at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Since then, the film has been released in theaters and on Disney+ and everyone has gotten to know the film’s characters. Today, we saw the artists completing a new sculpture out of the previous sculpture’s base to showcase more characters from the film.


The sculpture still has the film’s title in the center, with Sisu the dragon peeking over it. The border around the title has changed to have plants and vines. Raya stands to the right in a different pose.


Tuk Tuk, Raya’s loyal sidekick, is now next to her instead of on the other side of the sculpture.


One of the artists was working on Tuk Tuk’s eye.


The other artist was working on a new version of the Ongis, who are stacked on top of each other next to the title. You may notice the artists were also wearing shirts with the Ongis on the back.


Above the Ongis, Tong holds baby Noi in his hand. Tong and Noi were not featured in the original sculpture.
