Disney has revealed that a Filipino song will be sung in its upcoming film ‘Raya and the Last Dragon,’ and slated to perform it is also a Filipino artist.
Walt Disney Studios teased on Monday that one of the Philippines’ “most powerful voices” has been tapped to perform the first-ever Filipino-language song from Disney. Taking to its social media pages, the studio shared a silhouette photo of the singer in question, along with a caption that says the mystery individual will be revealed today, March 2.

So who is it?
While waiting for an answer, Filipino netizens already came up with their guesses. One popular guess is Sarah Geronimo, due to the mystery person’s hair and built that bear a striking resemblance to the pop star royalty. Another one is PBB alumna Ylona Garcia, who is also a safe bet with her natural Disney Princess vibes and for the fact that she looks a lot like the mystery singer, built-wise.
Of course, while there are plenty of serious guesses, there are also not-so-serious ones purely intended for laughs. ABS-CBN star and ‘Bawal Lumabas’ hitmaker Kim Chiu is among the people’s choices, alongside Marian Rivera whose rendition of Rihanna’s Unfaithful still breaks the internet 3 years after it aired on TV.
‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ will follow the story of Disney’s first-ever Southeast Asian princess, as she embarks on an adventure to find the last remaining dragon to stop the enemies threatening the land. It is set in a fictional land called Kumandra, which draws inspiration from countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, and the Philippines.
The all-new Disney film is set to premiere on Disney+ this March. But with the streaming service’s unavailability in countries like the Philippines, it remains a question how Filipinos will be able to watch it. However, with select cinemas starting to open across the country, the possibility of ‘Raya and the Dragon’ hitting the big screen can’t be ruled out.
