‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Tops Vudu and FandangoNow Charts

Disney’s computer-animated Raya and the Last Dragon took the top spot on the Vudu and FandangoNow charts for the week ended April 4.

Both are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

The fantasy adventure Raya became available for digital purchase April 2 following its debut in theaters and via Premier Access with an added charge for subscribers to the Disney + streaming service. In the film, long ago, in the world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. When sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned, and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the last dragon in order to finally stop the Druun for good.

Warner Bros.’ DC comic-based Wonder Woman 1984, starring Gal Gadot, took the silver on both charts. It became available for digital purchase March 16 following its PVOD rental run.

Taking the bronze on the Vudu chart was Screen Media’s Willy’s Wonderland, available for early digital purchase. The film stars Nicolas Cage as a loner who agrees to clean an abandoned family fun center in exchange for repairs to his car and finds himself waging war against possessed animatronic mascots.

Coming in at No. 3 on the FandangoNow chart was Warner’s The Little Things, available via premium VOD rental starting March 19. The psychological thriller stars Denzel Washington, Rami Malek and Jared Leto and follows a Kern County deputy sheriff who is sent to Los Angeles for a quick evidence-gathering assignment, but instead becomes embroiled in the search for a killer who is terrorizing the city. It came in at No. 5 on the Vudu chart.

Lionsgate’s Chaos Walking, available for premium VOD rental April 2, took the fourth spot on both charts. Based on the best-selling novel The Knife of Never Letting Go and set in the not-too-distant future, the film follows Todd Hewitt (Tom Holland) who discovers a mysterious girl named Viola (Daisy Ridley). She has crash-landed on his planet, where the women have disappeared and the men are afflicted by “The Noise,” a force that puts all their thoughts on display. In this dangerous landscape, Viola’s life is threatened and, to protect her, Todd must discover his inner power and unlock the planet’s dark secrets.
