Kelly talks about her first acting gig which was on our show several years ago, being an overachiever in high school, and going from being a huge lifelong Disney fan to starring as a princess in the new Disney film Raya and the Last Dragon which is in theatres and on Disney+ Premiere Access starting March 5th.

Check out the official trailer for Raya and the Last Dragon here:

  • She seems like a really sweet person. After what happened to the actors of other hated Star Wars characters (Jake Lloyd especially), it is nice to see she is doing well. Rose Tico was an awful character but it wasn't her fault that the writing in that movie was terrible.

  • I am starting to wonder if Kimmel would suddenly be a fan of Trump if Trump was in a Disney movie too. Disney is apparently doubling down on this no charisma actress. She is currently part of a Disney film controversy where East Asian actors portraying West Asian characters is a horrible crime. The stupidity just keeps coming. That will be another movie I definitely do not pay to see.

    • @Nick Herman Very well explained! Thank you. Indeed, I once heard in an interview about poverty, a black woman with 3 jobs, who still couldn't feed her children. She explained that she probably was bad at capitalism, and therefore poor. While as a foreigner I'd say it was inhuman low pay that took away her dignity.

      KootFlorisKootFlorisIl y a 12 jours
    • It’s what happens when a society is so far right economically that your entire worth and security as a human is based on how much money and fame you can achieve. Hence, in America, there is a moral equivalence between being poor and being punished or simply not trying hard enough. It’s a neat little equation that saves many people from developing empathy or understanding the phrase, “social contract.”

  • So this is how Kelly Marie Tran is treated after The Last Jedi attacks and the Phasma treatment in The Rise of Disrespecting Anakin by Saying Palpatine Didn't Die... by giving her the lead role in the promising looking Raya and the Last Dragon. I'm gonna say that her appreciative supporters are actually Raya's people and her haters that call her Ching Chong Wing Tong on her vandalized Wookieepedia are the Druun that's threatening to return after 500 Years since the dragons had sacrificed themselves to protect her people. Although I do have something to say something else below... J.J Abrams and Rian Johnson do no such favors to George Lucas, Jake Floyd and Hayden Christensen when it comes to Anakin. George gave him life, Jake freed him from slavery and Hayden showed us the unstability behind his sand hating self compared to Luke's uncertainty self of what we once thought was a threatening villain back in 1977; now Lord Vader has never been a victim to us more than now when that evil woman that Daisy Ridley must've felt embarrassed to play as in the lead role had taken more from him than his son. To quote Mr. Incredible from the first superior film because Rise of the Underminer is the real sequel, not the second film: "Why are you here? How can you POSSIBLY bring me lower, what MORE can you TAKE AWAY FROM ME?"

  • What happened to Kelly Marie Tran is a clear example of what happens when fandoms are given too much liberty and instead of being civil, inclusive and open minded people, they use what little power they have to gang up on a person. It's literally a reformed version of public shaming except people can hide behind computer screens and not face the consequences. It's revolting and it's never ok to do this. I wish Kelly Marie all the best. She deserves the world 💕💕 I'll definitely be paying Premier Access to see Raya and The Last Dragon 🐉

    • @Dennis Heyes unfortunately, no. It’s kind of hard to identify the factors that a character must have in order to be named an Official Disney Princess. They usually have their coronations within a year of their movie’s release, I believe, so that can give you a general time frame to see if a character you love will be inducted. The current 12 official princesses are (in number order): Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, Merida, and Moana.
