It has nothing to do with the synopsis. The reason why animation Raya and the Last Dragon is causing controversy before it even debuted in Disney+ – what will happen on Friday, 5 – is materialized, to be more specific, in the pocket of users of streaming.
In addition to the monthly subscription of R $ 27.90 (or annual 279.90 reais), Brazilians who want to watch the animation will have to pay no less than 69.90 reais, an amount that would pay two monthly installments (with change) and which is much higher than the tickets of the vast majority of cinemas, where The movie will also be displayed.
For users who are willing to pay the 69.90 reais, it is necessary to access the Disney + subscription, click on the Premier Access area and include the payment method after selecting the movie. After payment, the animation is available until March 19.
Those who cannot (or want) to pay, will have to wait much longer. The streaming predicted date for releasing the film at no additional cost to subscribers is April 23.
In Raya and the Last Dragon, Kumandra was a fantastic place where humans and dragons lived in harmony, but everything changed when an evil force threatened the land and the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. 500 years later, the same evil comes back to haunt Kumandra, and it is up to a lone warrior, Raya, to find the last dragon to restore the land of before.
This is not the first time that Disney + will charge more than agreed with its users. Premier Access for streaming appeared in the middle of last year in the United States, as a way to compensate for the loss of closed or low-public cinemas. Over there, the live-action Mulan, a megaproduction of about 200 million dollars that was undermined by the pandemic, started the service, which charged users an extra 29 dollars – the same extra amount that will be charged for Raya and the Last Dragon.
Among users, paying even more to watch certain titles is not at all popular, but it seems to have been the plug-hole that Disney found to improve the collection of major productions – and that should not stop there.
