MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 22, 2021)– This week, Disney Animation Studios will celebrate the release of its movie “Raya and the Last Dragon” by working with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to spread joy through a series of virtual events for St. Jude patient families and its generous supporters.
“Raya and the Last Dragon” is an epic journey to the fantasy world of Kumandra where Raya learns that it takes more than a dragon to save the world. It takes trust and teamwork – timeless themes reflected in the pioneering research and lifesaving treatment delivered at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for kids with childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Below is a snapshot of the fun offerings.
Because of generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. St. Jude also freely shares the discoveries it makes, so every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ epic adventure “Raya and the Last Dragon”is now available on all major digital platforms and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD. Fans can enjoy never-before-seen bonus footage and deleted scenes in stunning Ultra HD quality and Dolby Audio.
