An excerpt from The Daily Journal:

While the story of “Raya” is a collaborative effort, the screenplay is written by Qui Nguyen and Adele Lim as they stitch together familiar themes. Cherry-picking from other adventure stories such as “Indiana Jones,” “How to Train Your Dragon” and even “Mad Max,” “Raya” becomes its own in true Disney style, as it focuses upon the overt messages of good prevailing over evil. However, even though the story arc presents nothing new, the messages within are delivered in unique ways by faces we don’t frequently see. This is well worth noting, and these messages never get old.
