Kelly Marie Tran received a warm virtual welcome into the Disney princess family during the remote red carpet event for Raya and the Last Dragon.

"The year you were born was the year I started recording Beauty and the Beast," O'Hara recalled. "So, I want you to prepare yourself for a very, very long but a very, very happy ride filled with wonderful experiences and thousands of children dressing up to look just like you."

Other stars from the Disney Animation space who joined them in the welcome were Ginnifer Goodwin (Judy Hopps in Zootopia) and Jonathan Groff (Kristoff in Frozen). Tran seemed incredibly thrilled to see Groff, one of her favorites.

"Sven and I just wanted to say happy premiere," Groff said, before slipping into his Sven's voice with a Sven plushie. "Happy premiere, Kelly!"
