Please, let this be it. What were you thinking? Focus. Eyes forward. Good boy. You're so easily distracted. Sneak peek at the brand-new film "Raya and the last dragon." You may know the voice, Kelly Marie Tran. I got so caught up in that, I forgot we were doing the show. We loved her in "Star wars" and now she's bringing us Disney's first southeast Asian princess. She is joining us live now. Good morning, Kelly. It is so great to see you. Good morning. Congratulations. Oh, my gosh. Congratulations on raya. I saw the big billboard in times square and got excited for it. You were the first asian-american lead in a "Star wars" film, now the first southeast Asian Disney princess. What does it feel like?
