'Raya And The Last Dragon's' Kelly Marie Tran On Being Disney's First Southeast Asian Princess And The Role Of Food In The Film

Kelly Marie and I already have three things in common from the get-go. We both love food (food is a key component in my young adult rom-com novel, A Phở Love Story). Kelly Marie voices a spunky, independent warrior named Raya in Raya and the Last Dragon (which was fully "made and then conceived and finished [from home]," Tran confirms). Every instance of something edible provides Easter eggs for people who love food like I do. You just feel the significance of it.”Food, especially, “plays a symbolic role in this movie,” Kelly Marie continues.
